BBC News Online users sent in their tributes to Cilla Black.
I was on the show and meeting Cilla and have her put me down was wicked, it's what memories are made of! Not sure if the show will be the same without her presence, even though it is all pre-planned! Good luck and all the best chuck!

Well done on a successful career!! I have only been living in London for a year but blind date is a must watch every week. Your natural manner and charm makes you the perfect presenter for a fun show! You will be greatly missed.
Best wishes to Cilla in whatever she goes on to do. I caution Granada - don't try to bring the show back without her. After 18 years Cilla & Blind Date are linked in the audience mind. Another host and a 'sexed up' format won't detract from the fact that the shows is past it's sell by date.

Cilla has a fabulous personality and is very warm and can be quite funny in dealing with the unexpected. Good luck Cilla.

You cannot beat the come-downs that Cilla gives to the incredibly cocky and arrogant males on Blind Date - that's what makes it worth watching...
She never failed to look as if she was just having a bloody good time.
Cilla rocks! Blind Date is the ultimate Saturday night telly and it will never be the same without her. A lorra lorra luck to ya chuck!
I suppose it will be Davina McCall taking the reins for the next series?

If they do bring it back, please avoid the use of any of the following as presenters a. Ant & Dec b. Davina McCall c. Dale Winton
Good Luck to you Cilla in what ever you decide to do.
You have a big heart. Continue to share it.
I shed a lorra, lorra tears tonight. Cilla have a holiday with "our Graham" to get over it and then come back and tell us how you gorra on

Cilla, thanks for bringing such style and panache to Blind date which made it one of the best satuday night shows EVER! Blind won't be the same without you! Good luck in whatever you go on to do!
I have been a fan for 15 years and love Blind Date it wont be the same without you! Good Luck and a lorra love chuck!!
I'm only 19 and have been watching Blind Date ever since I can remember. It will not be the same without good old Cilla every saturday night. Will miss her and the show. Tara chuck!
Where else could we see the best and worst of Britain?
Rock on Cilla! All the best for the future and I'm sure it's not the last we'll see of you. Blind Date was great with you as the host. Ta-ra for now!
