Cilla Black spent her last hours laughing

By Lorna Cooper

Cilla Black's son Robert Willis has revealed the entertainer spent her last hours alive "killing herself laughing" at The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Black died of a stroke on August 1 after falling and hitting her head at her Spanish villa.

He said: "Her hearing had started to go so she had to start wearing hearing aids. Typical of my mum, she wouldn't wear them. I'd gone for a jog, gone for a swim and stuff. She was sitting around having a glass of champagne, killing herself laughing at Jeremy Kyle - without the hearing aids obviously, so blaring out across Marbella. We hung out and at about 1 o'clock, I said I was going to do a shop. I said goodbye and that was the last time I saw her."
