SAMANTHA FOX

Samantha Karen Fox was born on 15 April 1966 in Mile End, East London, UK. Her parents were Carole Fox and Patrick Fox. When she was 16 years old, Samantha Fox rose to stardom in Britain as a model in the Daily Sun newspaper. Her popularity as a model soon led to a record contract.

She released her first single, “Touch Me (I Want Your Body),” in 1986. “Touch Me” set the pattern for her career — frothy, sexually suggestive dance-pop with good beats and sketchy melodies. She had a string of hits, beginning with the U.K. number three single “Touch Me.” “Do Ya, Do Ya (Wanna Please Me)” followed her debut single into the British Top Ten.
