Well done, chuck: Cilla Black has her first EVER Official Albums Chart Number 1 today
Cilla looking daffy and delightful in 1970
She may be gone, but Cilla lives on in her music.
Following her funeral yesterday, Cilla Black’s The Very Best Of has climbed to Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart.
The announcement was made today when the official chart positions were announced at 6pm. The accolade marks a new peak for the greatest hits compilation, which reached No 20 in 1983.
It seems strange, considering her enormous pop success, but the Liverpudlian legend has never actually had a chart-topping album – until now.
Her eponymous album Cilla hit No 5 in 1965. The following year the colourfully titled Cilla Sings A Rainbow did one better and made it to No 4.
