Sir Cliff appeared on Life Stories where he was interviewed by the show’s host Piers Morgan, 55, last month.
In the candid chat about his life, the musician opened up about the death of his father, who passed away at the age of 56.
20-years-old at the time, the singer explained: “It wasn’t easy for any of us really, but he was a naughty person really, he did smoke a lot.
“That’s why I feel some times that my anger if I’ve got any, comes out when I think he missed the best things in my life.”
