...thank you David, I did a bit or research and Sheridan is small.....
1.69 metres = 66.54 inches = 5 ft 6 1/2 inches....that must be Cilla's height
1.57 m = 61.8 inches = almost 5' 2" for Sheridan Smith, checked on wikipedia.
Most women wear heeled shoes, average 3", some do the 5" thing, but that still makes that little actress 5' 5" tall in most shots, whilst the real Cilla who can be seen in many historic pictures with The Beatles, looks to be of a similar height (in her heels) to them, who were 5' 8" - 5' 11" (without their Cuban heel boots on).
Having watched episode 1 of 'Cilla' I can honestly say that Sheridan's portrayal of Cilla is spot-on and her singing (live) fantastic. I expect we'll see Cilla's greatest hits in the top ten soon on the back of this excellent drama and deservedly so. I do hope they cover the Burt Bacharach session for 'Alfie' on one of the later episodes.
Hi Guys. Want to give You all a Heads up on a New Drama Called "CILLA" It stars Sheridan Smith as a Young Pricilla White on Her way to Becoming Cilla Black.
