Singer Sir Cliff Richard is to face the public again for the first time since the end of his sex assault investigation after landing an hour-long special on British daytime show Loose Women.
Officials at Britain's Crown Prosecution Service announced in June (16) they had dropped the 22-month investigation into allegations of sex abuse made against the musician by four men, relating to alleged incidents between 1958 and 1983.
Now the star is promoting a new album of rock 'n' roll covers, and, in a video message on Monday's (17Oct16) Loose Women, Cliff revealed he would be part of a special hour-long episode of the panel TV show dedicated to him.
The 76-year-old's longtime pal Gloria Hunniford, a regular Loose Women panellist, will lead the chat.
In his video message, Richard said, "I am so excited because I've just heard that Loose Women are going to do a Cliff Richard special. I'm thrilled! Loose Women, I'm sure you've got a lot of things planned for me, should I be worried? I hope not! I can't wait to be there."
Hunniford added, "It's going to be terrific because the audience will be full of Cliff fans, he's going to be singing live, he's going to be talking about the new album and we're looking for probably the best Cliff fan ever... It's going to be live of course, and he's looking forward to it and so are we."
Cliff gave his first interview to Gloria on Loose Women after news of the sex abuse charges brought against him were dropped.
It is not known if he will address the investigation and his lawsuit against South Yorkshire Police officials, who raided his Berkshire, England home in 2014. Cops tipped off the BBC and the whole drama was televised live.
