This TV special for ITV, hosted by Paul O’Grady, celebrated Cilla Black’s 50th year in showbusiness (originally broadcast on 16 October 2013). Cilla took a trip down memory lane reflecting on her time as a chart-topping pop singer, before she evolved into one of the UK’s best-loved TV hosts. She also returned to The Cavern Club where she began her career performing alongside The Beatles. For one night only, Cilla also resurrected her dating game show ‘Blind Date’ where she was joined by past contestants. The show also featured special guest video tributes and live performances of Cilla’s hits by Alison Moyet and Katie Melua. When originally broadcast, the special was the most watched programme in the UK’s 9pm TV time slot!
