Cilla is despondent after failing her audition for Brian Epstein but the loyal Bobby persuades her to keep singing, driving her from club to club. At the Iron Door club she impresses Brian Epstein who is now keen to manage her and take her to London to make a record. Bobby feels betrayed but Cilla insists he accompany her as her road manager. They stay in a hotel whilst Brian goes to an underground gay club and picks up a bit of rough who beats him up though he lies to Cilla about his bruises. George Martin records her debut disc 'Love of the Loved', with a song by Bobby as the B-side. It fails to enter the top twenty but her follow up, a cover of the American song 'Anyone who had a Heart' goes to number one in the charts.

When Cilla is seen recording at Abbey Road, she is in a booth separate from the band/orchestra and backing singers in the main studio. But as the Beatles have themselves remarked in interviews, the studio used by George Martin at Abbey Road didn't have recording booths, just an open space with mics and recording facilities. See more
