Surprise, surprise! TV star Cilla Black spotted in Burnham-On-Sea

TV personality Cilla Black was apparently spotted in the centre of Burnham-On-Sea on Sunday morning (February 7th).

Several shoppers claim to have seen the TV presenter walking along the High Street near Shickle Shoes aqnd she apparently stayed at a guesthouse in the town overnight.

A member of's discussion forums reported here seeing the star and added: "I saw her with my partner - she was talking to local folk!"

Geoff Shickle of Shickle Shoes told "Unfortunately, we didn't see her and she didn't come into our shop. The last celebrity shopper we had was Jim Bowen from ITV quiz show Bullseye several years ago!"

Cilla, 67, was the host of two of the UK's most popular and long-running entertainment programmes of the 1980s and 1990s.

They included Blind Date between 1985-2003 and Surprise, Surprise from 1984–2001. If the sighting proves accurate, it is not known why Cilla was in the Burnham area.
