Meanwhile, despite much praise from viewers, some people weren’t impressed with Cliff’s interview.
During the chat, fans were disappointed that Cliff didn’t open up much about his personal life.
What did Life Stories viewers say?
One person said: “I’ve been watching Sir Cliff for an hour and don’t feel like I know any more about him #LifeStories.”
Another agreed: “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.”
However, many viewers loved the episode.
One wrote: “Sir Cliff Richard is such an iconic legend I’m really enjoying watching tonight’s #LifeStories and an amazing interview as well!”
During the chat, Sir Cliff opened up about his past girlfriends and admitted that he had never been heartbroken.
Describing himself as an enigma, he added: “I love the word ‘enigma’ because it means that they don’t really understands what you’re really about.”
