There is the list of some quotes of Cilla Black:
  • I didn't think before that I'd done enough to justify publishing an autobiography but after 40 years in show business I'm now ready to tell my story.
  • I had to do the book because there was an unauthorized biography which didn't tell it like it was.
  • I did fancy Paul ('Paul McCartney (I)' ). I went through the whole Beatles. I started fancying 'John Lennon (I)' and then he wasn't interested, obviously. And then I went on to Paul and he wasn't interested. And I got on to George ('George Harrison (I)' ) and he wasn't interested. And who'd have thought that Ringo ('Ringo Starr' ) today would look the cute one? He does. He used to look like 'Yasser Arafat' .
