Samantha Karen "Sam" Fox (born 15 April 1966 in Mile End, London) is an English former glamour model and dance-pop singer.
She attended St Thomas More RC School, Haringey, and took a keen interest in the theatre from an early age. She first appeared on a theatre stage at the age of three, and was enrolled in the Anna Scher Theatre School from the age of 5. Her first television appearance came in 1976, at the age of 10, in a BBC play entitled No Way Out. Following on from this, she started at the Judi Dench Mountview Theatre School, near her home in Crouch End, at the age of 11.
Fox's father Patrick, a former carpenter, managed her career until 1991, when Fox hired accountants to trace over £1 million that she believed he had embezzled from her accounts. She then sued her father, who by then had divorced and remarried, and in May 1995 she was awarded a £363,000 court settlement. Patrick Fox died in 2000, at which time he and Fox had not spoken for almost a decade.
Samantha Fox was, in a online vote held by the British Newspaper the Daily Star, voted by its readers, as 'The best page 3 pin up ever' in September 2008. As a result of the poll win, she appeared topless for the first time in 12 years in the Daily Star although on page 5, not page 3.
In 2008, Fox and her partner Myra took part in Celebrity Wife Swap, exchanging with Freddie Starr and his wife Donna.
Fox was twice linked to Australian con man Peter Foster. They dated in 1986-87 and then, after a seven year separation, they reunited in 1994 for a year. They were at one time reportedly engaged to be married. During this time she and Peter decided to adopt a young Australian boy named Simon. Tragedy struck when Simon accidentally ingested a bottle of alcohol and was then rendered comatose. Fox described Foster as "the love of my life". She has also been in relationships with Paul Stanley, the singer and rhythm guitarist for the band KISS.
"Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)" is a song by Samantha Fox that appeared on her second album and was released as a single in 1987 and 1988.
Maybe, just maybe
Naughty girls need love too."
I've been told time and time again
That you can't treat love like a game
But I play rough with hearts that never mend
'Cause some guys like you do the same
Love was just a four letter word
Never heard how absurd it could be
But now I can't believe this is real
How I feel now you steal
My heart away from me
Used to be so good and so bad
Sex was just something I had
Used to always know what to do
Now you've got me confused
Baby don't let me be misunderstood
Temporary love's so bad but if feels so good
Then along came you
Now I know its true
Naughty girls need love too
Then came you, then came you
Yes, it's true
I'm in love with you
And believe it baby this time
Your love won't get away
Stay here in the place to be
We can get busy my way
For six forevers and a day-ay-ay
Ooh it's only you I adore
So much more than my body
Was asking for
Yes your love is breaking my chill
Even still there's a thrill
In my heart.
"Samantha Fox was such a wild dame
Huh but what's in a name
No more fun and games of the mind
Let's get busy one more time."
