Two days before the broadcast of the first episode of “Cilla“, a BBC TV program hosted by singer Cilla Black, Paul McCartney rehearsed with her “Step Inside Love“, the song he had written to serve as the musical theme of the program. At this point, the song only consisted of one verse and a chorus.

Cilla Black and Paul McCartney had previously recorded a demo of “Step Inside Love” and a first version with orchestra, on November 21, 1967.
