Singer with a Welsh connection!

Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Paul O’Grady, Bruce Forsyth and Prime Minister David Cameron were among friends, colleagues in the entertainment industry and politicians who expressed their sorrow at Cilla’s untimely death."

I believe that I am related to Cilla Black on my mother's side. I was sent to Australia under the child migrant scheme in 1955. My sister also says we are related to Cilla. Can anyone help me to contact her? Please use the MessagePad service.

No she doesn't have a daughter named Leanne. She gave birth to a baby girl in the 1970's but she died shortly after. Cilla has three sons. My Nan's her mate.
