Cilla Black died of a stroke after falling over at her Spanish home on Saturday, the coroner has confirmed.

The 72-year-old was sunbathing at her villa in Estepona when she stood up, lost her balance and fell hitting her head, which knocked her unconscious.

She subsequently died of a stroke, and would not have suffered.

The star's three sons released the information after receiving the "conclusive" results of the autopsy from authorities in Spain.

They have now been given permission to return her body to the UK as soon as possible for her funeral.

It is good to hear she didn't suffer, but her family must be in bits. She will be with her beloved Bobby now!

Cilla Black died from head injury, coroner rules
Singer Cilla Black died from a traumatic head injury during a fall at her home in Spain, a coroner has ruled.

During a 15-minute hearing at Liverpool Coroner's Court, Andre Rebello recorded a verdict of accidental death.

Black was found dead at her villa in Estepona on the Costa del Sol on 1 August.

The 72-year-old entertainer's funeral will take place next Thursday at St Mary's Roman Catholic Church in Liverpool.
'Celebrated and loved'

Addressing the hearing, attended by Black's three sons, Mr Rebello referred to the star by her real name Priscilla Maria Veronica Willis.

"She was a daughter of Liverpool and was celebrated and loved by all in Liverpool," he said.

Family, friends and fans are to pay their final respects to entertainer Cilla Black when her funeral takes place in Liverpool later.

Sir Cliff Richard is due to sing at the Mass at St Mary's RC Church in Woolton.

TV stars Paul O'Grady, Jimmy Tarbuck and Christopher Biggins will join her sons Robert and Ben in giving readings.

Her family have asked fans to line a two-mile stretch of the funeral cortege route along Woolton Road but not gather outside the church itself.

The funeral begins at 13:00 BST. ca99
