The in crowd

CILLA Black, Sir Cliff Richard and Colin Firth were among the famous faces watching the ladies' semi-finals from the Royal Box at Wimbledon.

Broadcaster Sir Michael Parkinson and his wife Lady Mary were also in the exclusive enclosure, along with swimmer Ian Thorpe. The Centre Court crowd watched former champion Petra Kvitova beat fellow Czech Lucie Safarova before Canadian Eugenie Bouchard overcame Simona Halep.

Andy Murray's defeat in Wednesday's quarter-final has led to a rush of fans trying to re-sell their men's final tickets. Online firm Viagogo saw a 23 per cent increase in ticket listings after Murray mania came to an abrupt end, sending the ticket re-sale price down 10 per cent.
