In Liverpool in 1960 17-year old typist Cilla White frequents the Cavern Club, where she occasionally sings. Her friend Ringo Starr, drummer with Rory Storm and the Hurricanes suggests she accompany the band to Hamburg for concerts but her parents forbid it, By chance she meets Bobby Willis, who claims to be in the music industry but actually works in a bakery. Cilla is not impressed when she learns the truth about him but allows him to be her manager. At their first gig she is erroneously billed as Cilla Black but likes the name. Ringo is now playing with the Beatles, who arrange for Cilla to audition with their manager Brian Epstein.

Did You Know?
The series was set in the 1960s. In the 'studio' setting where sheridan sings 'anyone who had a heart' - both her vocal microphone and that of the backing singers both appear to have 'Neutrik' xlr connectors which weren't around until the 70s. Should have been Cannon xlr connectors for authenticity. See more
