Does anyone have anything good to say about Ms Black? There are several threads on DS asking about the rudest celebrities people have ever met and Cilla's name comes up more than anyone else and none of it is positive, in fact she sounds thoroughly vile and unpleasant. I'd love to know what her problem is? And it's not like she's anything special either, very plain when she was younger and a voice that sounds like a cat being strangled.

I always remember my mum refusing to watch Blind Date or Surprise Surprise because she disliked Cilla so much, guess she was right about her all along eh?

She was not very pleasant even before she was famous (I've never met her but a few of my relatives have - back in the early 60's).

Are you sure you're in the right place?
Cilla is well-loved, here on DS. Quite an icon, in fact!................










....Erm, well-loved as in 'the name that always crops up first when vile celebs is the topic du jour'...

Personally, I can't stand her. Never could.

Never having met Ms.Black nor seen her shows, nor having any wish to do so, then I have no idea whether she's pleasant or unpleasant.

I know this is the Daily Wail, but it does tie in with the very many stories that float around about Ms Black

Was unfortunate enough to actually meet her outside of her "work" and yes she is very unpleasant.

That I can well believe. Usually people who were nice to start with will remain nice after they become famous.

Wasn't there a story some years back about a contestant on Blind Date who went public to claim that ol' Cilla had virtually reduced her to tears via nasty, dismissive behaviour once the cameras stopped rolling?

Was it Cilla who went on a rant on I think Room 101 a few years back, about people having camera phones and invading celebrities privacy, since someone took a photo of her sleeping on a train and it ended up in the papers? she seemed seriously rattled about it at the time. I think that was Cilla(?). I used to do a mean Surprise, Surprise impersonation hehe

Never seen that before, but she sounds deluded and up he own behind. I know all celebs will have good days and bad days but it sounds like Cilla only has bad days. What I find unforgivable are the stories of her refusing to talk to staff in shops and getting her PA to speak on her behalf, or her refusal to talk to to work men doing work on her home. Seriously, who the **** does she think she is?

Had she been born 50 years later, Black’s girl-next-door looks and chirpy charm would have been more likely to turn her into a cheesy reality star than someone who rubbed shoulders with the coolest names in music and, with this in mind, it’s a relief that Black isn’t a snob about talent shows – in fact, she loves them. “I’d be first in the queue for X Factor now, oh yeah!” she says. “That is totally my personality – and I would have won it as well.”

I remember coming across a great website where airline staff were listing all the rudest celebs and nicest celebs they had ever dealt with on their flights... it really as a mine of great gossip !!!

At the top of the list for rudest cowbag ever born..... was Cilla. No one had a decent word to say about her. The most obnoxious full of herself rude bint anyone had ever come across.

She really became famous through her connections though and not so much her talent (even though she had a decent enough voice in the 60s). She knew The Beatles and it was they who introduced her to Brian Epstein and persuaded him to sign her.....without that connection, it's highly unlikely she would ever have become famous.

I heard that Paul hate her and hasn't spoken to her for years.

A friend of mine has done charity work and says that Barbara Windsor is not very nice at all.
On the other hand, June Brown helped with their charity work and was absolutely fabulous.

You can usually judge a person by the company they keep - so as much as I think I'd like Paul O'Grady in person - I have the feeling that he'd be a MASSIVE disappointment in real life - as 'Cilla' is one of his best mates.

I never cared much for Paul McCartney until I saw your post! He's gone up a thousand-fold (if its true).

It's a very good point. Anyone who has horrible close friends is invariably a horrible person themselves (otherwise they would be repulsed by the behaviour of their mates and would want nothing to do with them).
