Who are Cilla Black’s children?

Cilla had four children with her husband Bobby Willis.

She had three sons called Robert, Ben and Jack and a daughter Ellen who sadly passed away shortly after birth.

In an exclusive interview with Piers Morgan in 2009 during an episode of Life Stories, she explained how she blamed herself for her daughters death, she said: “I was inconsolable, riddled with guilt, enmeshed in depression from which I was convinced there was no return.”

Her oldest son Robert also acted as her manager after his father Bobby died in 1999.

What have Cilla Black’s children said about her death?

Robert, the TV entertainer’s eldest son, discovered his mum’s body at her Spanish villa.

Speaking about the tragedy revealed he is comforted by the fact she didn’t have to suffer the ill health of growing old.

He told the Mail on Sunday: “Her mother suffered from osteoporosis and in old age, slowly became a shadow of her former self. That was my mum’s darkest fear, that the same thing would happen to her.

“So as much of a tragedy as her death was, I think that in some respects she would have chosen to go when she did because for her it was all about having a quality of life.”
