Cilla Black 'knew she was going to die' - 'Bobby is waiting for me'

Iconic singer and TV star Cilla Black died on August 1, 2015. The Liverpudlian songbird suffered a fatal stroke after falling and hitting her head in her Spanish holiday home. Shortly after the star’s death, her lifelong friend Terry McCann commented that he was “not surprised she had died”.

McCann told the BBC: “The last thing she said to me was she was going blind, she showed me her hands, she had arthritis. She willed herself to die.”

He added: “Her mother went the same way. I don’t know what her mother died of but it seemed she associated it with her mother’s death and she just knew it was going to happen.

“She just said: ‘Look at me, I’m a wreck.’ I was trying to cheer her up.

“She knew something we didn’t. She knew she was going to die and she said she wasn’t going to linger like her mother.”

McCann went on: “Her mother was ill for two years and she had the same complaint and she said she was never going to linger like that.”

He also explained that Black spoke about reuniting with her late husband, Bobby Willis.

Willis was also Black’s musical manager, who took over from The Beatles’ boss Brian Epstein when he died in 1967.

Black’s husband died in 1999 after a battle against lung and liver cancer.

Sir Paul McCartney paid tribute to the late star shortly after her death.

He said: “Such a shock to hear about Cilla’s passing. She was a lovely girl who infected everyone with her great spirit.

“From first meeting her as a cloakroom girl at the Cavern in Liverpool, to seeing her many times since, she always had a fun-loving dignity that made her a great pleasure to be around.

“She had a fine distinctive voice and was always a bit of a laugh. It was a privilege to know and love her.”

Ringo Starr also chimed in with some kind words from himself and his wife, Barbara Bach.

He posted on his Twitter account: “I just heard the news Cilla Black has left us.

“She was a good friend, we will all miss her. Peace to Cilla peace and love to the family R&B [Ringo and Barbara] xxx.” (sic)
