Loose Women: Sam Fox and Linda Olsen reveal how they met

Sam Fox and Linda Olsen tied the knot in style on Saturday, with a lavish three-tier wedding cake and a Norwegian pop act on hand to provide the entertainment during the couple’s celebrations.

The former Celebrity Big Brother contestant, 56, looked incredible in a strapless white gown as she married her fiancee of 2-years at a beautiful venue in Epping Forest, Essex with her loved ones watching on.

Sam and Linda announced their engagement in March 2020, four years after they first struck up a romance in 2016.

Prior to embarking on a relationship with Linda, Sam spent 12-years with her former manager and long-term partner Myra Stratton, until her then-fiancée passed away from cancer in 2015.

After covid related issues put a halt on their wedding plans in 2020, former icon Sam and Linda got to celebrate their love in front of their friends and family over the weekend and finally become a married couple.

Here’s how their special day looked…

Arrive in style

Sam arrived at the Essex wedding venue in a white Bentley car decorated for the occasion – with the vehicle adorned with floral arrangements, pink ribbons and a number plate that read: “Sam and Linda are getting married, 18th June 2022.”

The eighties pin-up was shielded by white umbrella’s as she entered King’s Oak Hotel in Essex, ready to walk down the aisle and marry her girlfriend.

Before becoming a married woman, Sam posed alongside the bridal-themed car, which featured a heart-shaped floral bouquet arrangement above the personalized license plate.

The star’s arrival gave the first glimpse of her eye-catching wedding attire, with the BRIT-nominated singer showing how her cleavage thanks to a detailed sequined bodice and corset-style dress.

Sam competed her bridal look with a dramatic floor-length veil and silver wedge heels – visible thanks to the mid-length cut of her white gown.

The star’s new wife Linda looked equally as stunning as she arrived in a floor-length bridal gown and walked down the aisle with her two sons, Adam and Noah Oslen.

Linda – who popped the question to Sam on Valentine’s Day 2020 – wore a traditional wedding dress complete with intricately designed train and long lace veil covering some of her brunette tresses.

Pop star performances

Despite rising to fame as a glamor model, Sam quickly transitioned to becoming better known for her pop music throughout her career.

As she tied the knot over the weekend, the 1998 Brit Award nominee ensured everyone was dancing into the evening thanks to performances from Norwegian pop duo Bobbysocks – made up of Elisabeth (Bettan) Andreassen and Hanne Krogh.

There was once also a time when a music legend could have walked Sam down the aisle at her wedding.

The newlywed singer recently told OK! magazine how many year ago, her ‘great mate’ Motörhead lead singer Lemmy – who died in 2015 – had offered to give her away on her wedding day after her father died 2000.

Prior to Lemmy’s death, Sam was in a 12-year relationship with her manager Myra Stratton, until her former fiancée passed away from cancer in 2015.

“It’s been a difficult couple of years for me,” Sam emotionally confessed on This Morning the year after the death of her partner and manager.

“The suffering is over… suffered for a good two years.

“She was told she was terminal two years before she died, so that was the most difficult time, the two years leading up to her death.”

Later in the same year, the eighties pin-up revealed she had found love once again with Linda, during her appearance on Channel 5’s Celebrity Big Brother.

“I’ve now fallen in love with another woman,” she told fellow housemates Marnie Simpson and Katie Waissel. “I met somebody a couple of months ago and I’m very happy. As you get older, life goes so quick.”

Pretty in pink

In addition to Sam and Linda looking incredible on their special day, the couple’s bridal party also stepped out in style to watch the two women exchange marriage vows.

Sam and Linda’s bridesmaids were also pictured arriving ahead of the exchange of vow – wearing stunning blush-pink floor-length gowns.

Ahead of tying the knot with Linda, the star spoke about who would be there to see her become a married woman.

When asked in an interview if any famous faces would make the guest list, Sam replied: “A few I’ve known a long time. I want to invite the people who got me where I am today.”

“I know a lot of celebrities but they’re not my real friends, but there’s a few coming.”

In June last year, Sam and Linda appeared on Loose Women, where they gave insight into their plans for the big day.

Confirming that it was Linda who proposed, panelist Frankie Bridge asked Sam if she was surprised when it happened.

“Kind of, I did hint!” Sam admitted, before adding: “I mean I’m getting on a bit now.

“When I met her, I knew I was completely in love with her and wanted to be with her forever.”

Referring to the moment when she hinted about getting married, Sam said: “I was doing a concert in Slovakia and we stayed in a 16th century castle and I said, ‘wouldn’t it be lovely to get married here?’

“She waited until Valentine’s Day 2020 to ask me to be her wife. She got down on one knee and it was all very traditional, I cried, she cried.”

Speaking about how they first met, Linda revealed she was a fan of Sam when she was younger: “When I was a little girl I was collecting her pictures, I was a big fan, she was my celebrity crush.”

Years later Linda bought meet and greet tickets to meet the former model at concert in Norway, and said there was “an instant connection”.

The pair then spoke on social media and agreed to meet again at another concert and now – following Saturday’s wedding – the rest is history!
