cilla blackCILLA Black has died at her Costa del Sol holiday home.

Local police have confirmed that the 72-year-old showbiz legend is dead, believing that she passed away from natural causes.

The British national, whose real name is Priscilla White, is thought to have arrived in Spain with one of her sons just days ago.

The shutters are closed in her property but some of the lights were on.

This afternoon one of her sons was spotted arriving at the villa with a number of shopping bags. His other three brothers are said to be set to join him at the villa tomorrow.

The Olive Press is awaiting news of the autopsy for the much-loved TV star who told press recently that she did not wish to live beyond the age of 75.

It came after she complained of serious hearing loss and a ringing in her ears.

A long time visitor to her home in the El Paraiso area, she was often seen out and about with friends including Cliff Richard and Max Clifford.

Just last year Cilla’s Spanish villa – which she visited most Augusts – was damaged by fire. She was in the UK when her Estepona home was engulfed in flames. Read more… Cilla Black’s Costa del Sol villa damaged by fire
