Sir Cliff Richard criticised for not opening up about his personal life enough on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories

Some viewers think he didn't reveal much

| Updated:

Sir Cliff Richard appeared on Piers Morgan’s Life Stories on Sunday night.

But some viewers were left unimpressed by his rare interview.

Many took to Twitter to share their disappointment that Sir Cliff didn’t let on much about his personal life.

The singer, 80, predominantly focused on his career throughout the interview.

Whereas many fans argued that they’d have loved to have found out more about his private and indeed love life.

What did viewers think of Sir Cliff’s interview with Piers?

One viewer complained: “I’m finding Cliff Richards a little self centred & a real closed book. He obviously wants the fame but refuses to open up to anyone or his sexuality/love life. That’s fine it’s each to their own. #LifeStories.”

And another viewer agreed: “Absolutely… a very closed book and nothing natural about him.”

Whereas a fourth user lamented: “Sorry, but if that was supposed to be an insightful interview with #sircliffrichard then it failed. I know nothing more than I did before #LifeStories worst I’ve seen.”

And a fifth viewer even claimed: “God this is like getting blood out of a stone, it’s the only #lifestories where you feel like you knew even less about them after it than you did before!”

And while the Summer Holiday singer did open up about the trauma of having his home raided in 2014 – he avoided commenting on his current love life.

He went into detail of his girlfriends of decades past, but darted around his current status.

He even said he enjoyed being thought of as an ‘enigma’.

Sir Cliff told Piers: “I love the word ‘enigma’ because it means that they don’t really understands what you’re really about.”

The legendary singer has insisted for years that his companion John McElynn is simply a good friend.
