Cilla Black looks set to make a charts comeback as one of her hit singles and an album re-entered the midweek UK charts following her sudden death.

Her breakthrough single, Anyone Who Had A Heart, has returned to the Officials Singles Chart in Britain.

Black's death while at her home in Spain, aged 72, has shocked and saddened her fans in Ireland and Britain.

Her song topped the singles chart back in 1964 and it spent three weeks at number one. It went on to become the biggest selling female single of the 1960s.

Records

Racing for the number one spot this week is One Direction with their new single, Drag Me Down. They released the single unexpectedly last Friday, and it's looking set to break a few records.

In the album charts, Black's The Very Best Of has re-entered midweek, with fans paying tribute to the star the world over.
