The 72 year old, who once famously toured with fellow Liverpudlians the Beatles, died of a stroke after falling over at her holiday home in Estepona.

Family members are currently making funeral plans.

The Anyone Who Had A Heart singer's death has sparked a career resurgence for the late star - her hits album The Very Best of Cilla Black has re-entered the U.K. charts at 14 thanks to sales following her death.
