Over 30 million records sold. The most photographed British star of the ’80s – alongside Princess Diana and Margaret Thatcher. Not since the Beatles has a British personality been so well known internationally, across a complete cross-section of ages, genders, races, and religions. Now, for the very first time, Samantha Fox has decided to tell the whole, and sometimes painful, story of the bullied North London girl who managed to captivate an entire world.
“My first memory is of an explosion and the smell of burnt flesh.” With those words, following a prologue in which readers are introduced to her backstage in 2015, Samantha Fox begins her story. Thoughts of Myra – the love of her life who has been battling an aggressive form of cancer for almost two years – whirl through her mind, then shortly she takes to the stage once more, to sing “Touch Me ” the song which made her world famous almost 30 years earlier.
Samantha Fox’s autobiography is a captivating tale about a fighter who has gone through hell more than once, but who has always come out stronger; someone who has remained in the public’s consciousness for almost four decades now – and who continues to play to sold-out crowds across the world.
