Cilla Black ‘Leaves £15million To Her Three Sons And £20K To Her Housekeeper' In Will

Cilla Black left £15.2million to her three sons in her will, according to reports.


Court papers revealed that the ‘Blind Date’ star, who died from a stroke at her Spanish villa in August last year, also left £20,000 to her housekeeper.

The bulk of her fortune will go to her sons Robert, 45, Ben, 41, and Jack, 35.

It means they will each receive over £3million, once a deduction of £5.95million has been made in inheritance tax.

Cilla’s thee boys are also set to inherit her £2million Spanish mansion and £1.5million Barbados penthouse, which are not included in her UK estate.

The only other person the 72-year-old star left money to was Penny Walker — who was the singer’s housekeeper for over 30 years.

Cilla earned her first million by the time she was 25 and owned a portfolio of luxurious properties around the world, from the Caribbean to the Costa del Sol.

Her main family home was a 17-acre estate near near Denham, Buckinghamshire, which boasted an indoor swimming pool, tennis court, ten bedrooms and five bathrooms.

She also owned a Westminster penthouse, which served as an office she shared with her husband and manager Bobby Willis, who died 17 years ago at the age of 57.
