The interview is set to cover Sir Cliff’s two-year sex abuse allegation hell.

The star found himself falsely accused of historical sex offences in 2014.

He was never arrested, and in 2016 prosecutors announced he would not face any charges.

He subsequently won a High Court battle against the BBC, after they filmed a police raid of his home.

The Beeb were ordered to award Sir Cliff £2 million. However, he still remained out of pocket, as his total legal costs amounted to at least £4.5 million.

He went on to tell reporters that the case seriously affected his physical and mental health.

Sir Cliff revealed last year: “I didn’t realise how much it had affected me, I can tell you that within six months of the allegation I had shingles all over my head and my face.

“When I came out of the court case, I won my case hands down but I felt no jubilation, I did not punch the air as I came out.”
