DS Icon: Cilla Black
From her halcyon music days when she scored chart hits with 'Alfie', 'Anyone Who Had A Heart' and 'It's For You', to her '80s TV pomp with LWT smashes Surprise, Surprise and Blind Date. She has fallen foul of the cull on older TV stars in recent years, but she still proves popular on the chatshow circuit and with saucy Royal Variety cameos. She's given us a "lorra, lorra laughs" down the years, she's the consummate professional and she could still wipe the floor with the Fearne Cotton and Holly Willoughby's of this world when it comes to fun, family TV.
