Samantha Fox was born on the 15th April 1966 in Mile End, London. She is a former glamour model and pop singer. She had a keen interest in the theatre from an early age, and first appeared on a theatre stage at the age of three. Her first television appearance came in 1976, at the age of 10, in a BBC play entitled No Way Out. Interested in music from an early age, she formed her first band at the age of 14. Her recording and acting careers seemed to about to flourish. However, both her theatre and music careers went on hold when her modelling career took off. In early 1983, 16-year-old Samantha Fox posed in her bedroom, wearing lingerie, while her mother Carole took pictures for The Sunday People newspaper's Face and Shape of 1983 amateur modelling contest. Sam came joint runner-up in the contest, The Sunday People published her pictures, and photographers from all the tabloids wanted her for a shoot, The Sun won. On Tuesday the 22nd February 1983, with the full support of her parents, Samantha Fox made her first topless Page Three Girl. She was still almost two months shy of her 17th birthday. She is renowned for her bubbly-blonde looks, winning smile, working-class background, and curvaceous 36D breasts, which looked disproportionately large on her diminutive 5 ft 1 in (1.55 m) frame.
