Sheridan Smith takes on the role of Cilla in this drama charting her rise from typist Priscilla White to superstar Cilla Black.

We begin in 1960s Liverpool, and Cilla is frequenting venues like the Cavern Club and The Iron Door and soon showing off her own talents when she's invited on stage to sing with the likes of The Beatles and The Big Three.

It's at this time Cilla meets Bobby Willis – a charming older man, with a car and a successful career in the music business. Or so he'd have her believe. In fact, he works at a bakers, is the same age as her and hires cars to impress the girls!

But Bobby's smitten with Cilla and eventually she agrees to let him manage her. He's crestfallen when she gets an audition for the legendary Brian Epstein, thinking he's no use to her any more. But when Cilla blows it, will he be there to pick up the pieces?
