Samantha Karen "Sam" Fox(born 15 April 1966 in Mile End, London) is an English former glamour model and dance-pop singer. n early 1983, Carole Fox photographed her teenage daughter wearing lingerie and submitted several pictures to the The Sunday People newspaper's "Face and Shape of 1983" amateur modeling contest. Judged joint runner-up in the contest, Fox had her pictures published, and was soon after invited for a test shoot for The Sun newspaper's Page Three feature. Her parents gave their consent for their daughter to pose topless, and on Tuesday, February 22, 1983, Fox's first Page Three photograph was published under the headline "Sam, 16, Quits A-Levels for Ooh-Levels." Fox's Cockney background, bubbly-blonde looks, winning smile, and 36D breasts made her an enormously popular Page Three model. After famously insuring her breasts for a quarter of a million pounds sterling, she won The Sun's Page Three Girl of the Year award for three consecutive years between 1984 and 1986. She also posed nude for several British soft-porn magazines, although very few full-frontal shots were ever published. In the late-1980s, Fox began a successful singing career, producing three albums in three years (1986-1988), and working with notable music producers such as Stock Aitken Waterman and Full Force. Her debut single, Touch Me (I Want Your Body), released when she was just 19 years old in March 1986, made the Top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic (#3 in the UK; #4 in the US). It also topped the charts in many countries, including Canada, South Africa and Australia. Her debut live performance came at Peter Stringfellow's club Hippodrome. Fox had three Top 10 hits in both the United States and Britain. In Canada and the U.S., Naughty Girls (Need Love Too) (#3 in the US; #8 in Canada) and I Wanna Have Some Fun (#8 in the US; #10 in Canada) made the Top 10; whereas British audiences put Do Ya Do Ya (Wanna Please Me) (#10 in the UK) and Nothing's Gonna Stop Me Now (#8 in the UK) into the Top 10. Her successful singing career resulted in Fox touring the world, including such places as Bosnia, Russia and Ukraine. In total Fox achieved 8 top 40 hits as a solo artist in the UK And 4 other singles found a place in the top 75 in this country. After a 3-year break, Samantha Fox released her fourth and final album in for Jive Records in 1991, entitled Just One Night. The album mirrored her previous work on 1988's I Wanna Have Some Fun, by presenting a mix of old school hip-hop style tracks featuring Full Force, along with a collection of pop & rock tracks. Just one Night became a hit for Fox in Canada. In 1992, Jive released Samantha's first official compilation, Greatest Hits, which featured three new tracks.
