Samantha Fox was the eldest daughter of Carole Ann Wilken, an actress known by her stage name Carol Fox, and John Patrick Fox, a former carpenter who then worked as his daughter’s manager until 1991. Having shown an interest in acting from an early age, her parents enrolled her in the Anna Scher Theatre School at the age of fifteen. Soon after, she won second place in the Girl of the Year modeling contest held by The Sunday People newspaper, which led to the tabloid The Sun taking notice of her, and inviting her to pose for their famous Page 3. Although she was only sixteen at the time, her parents allowed her to model topless for the newspaper, and she remained under contract with the paper for four years. During this time, she won The Sun’s “Page 3 Girl of the Year” Award three years in a row, and she was also voted the Top Page 3 girl of all time in 2008.
Samantha also tried her hand in the music business. She had already given it a shot in 1983, when she formed a band called SFX and recorded a few songs, although with little success. However, after her modeling she got a second chance, and found fame as a solo performer. Her first single “Touch Me (I Want Your Body)”, from her breakout album “Touch Me” (1986), peaked at No. 1 in seventeen countries worldwide, and achieved gold status in Canada. This was followed by her second, self-titled studio album in 1987, which also achieved gold status, and spawned singles such as “Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)”, and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Me Now”. Samantha released another two albums, in 1988 and 1991, and then went on a brief hiatus. During this time, she formed a girl trio band called Sox, with whom she competed in the 1995 “Song For Europe”, from which the UK representative for Eurovision was chosen. However, their song “Go for the Heart” finished in 4th place.
Samantha released her fifth studio album in 1998, called “21st Century Fox”, which was a big success on the European dance scene. She followed it with “Angel with an Attitude” (2005), which marked a turning point in Fox’s career, since she could finally have more creative control over her work, as evidenced by the songs she wrote, and which reflected certain events from her personal life.
During her career, she also toured extensively and travelled the world, which also improved her wealth.
Regarding her personal life, Fox’s private life was often at the center of media attention, due to her high-profile relationships with Australian con-artist Peter Foster, and Paul Stanley, guitarist and singer in the rock band Kiss. Her sexual orientation was often under the loop, until Fox came out as bisexual in 2003. She lived with her partner and manager Myra Stratton until Myra passed away in 2015. Fox supports LGBT rights, and she campaigned for the charity The Albert Kennedy Trust.
