Two of Cilla’s sons Robert and Ben gave readings.They were joined by TV stars Paul O’Grady, Jimmy Tarbuck and Christopher Biggins  who also had a few words to say about their dear friend.

Other guests included Andrew Lloyd Webber, Carol Vorderman and Sir Tom Jones.

Cilla died of a stroke after falling over at her Spanish home earlier this month at the age of 72.
