Cilla Black's Tv Biopic To Feature Arguments With Husband

Veteran British entertainer Cilla Black's bitter bust-ups with her late husband Bobby are to feature in an upcoming Tv biopic.

The '60s singer will be portrayed by British actress Sheridan Smith in the Tv mini-series and the drama will focus on Black's early career and her links to The Beatles.

Black has revealed the series will also portray the grittier side of her life and will include scenes where she argues with husband Bobby, who she was married to for 30 years before his death in 1999.

She tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "We did have our rows. And you see some of that. When we eventually got married there were no rows - well, the odd one maybe. But in the course of the courtship we had terrible arguments. I can't tell you the times that he left me.

"The rows were always about stupid things really, to do with work. Not other men because he never left me alone. I was never, ever allowed to go out alone. We always went out as a couple.

"But really it's a love story between Bobby and I. How we met and how we did things together and how I made it to the top."

The three-part drama is due to air in the U.K. later this year (14).
