The Mirror reports that Wendi Peters (our Cilla Brown) has revealed that the inspiration behind loudmouth Cilla is Wife Swap battleaxe Lizzie Bardsley.
Wendi admitted she based some of her role on the mum-of-eight.
Lizzie, since on Celebrity Fit Club, was convicted of state benefits fraud after the C4 reality show.
And Wendi said in a local radio interview recorded before her current stint on Soapstar Superstar: "I watched a lot of Trisha and Jerry Springer. But then there was Lizzie ...
"There's elements of her in Cilla - the shouting, not thinking before you speak - though she loves her kids."
