The ‘80s model and singer has become a housemate after being persuaded by her late partner.
Samantha has told The Sun of how girlfriend Myra Stratton wanted her to do the Channel 5 reality series, before she died following a battle with cancer last August.
“Myra wanted me to do this,” Samantha explained to the paper. “We saw the producers two years ago when Myra got diagnosed.
Samantha previously opened up about the devastating loss of her partner on ‘This Morning’, telling Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby she’d had a “difficult couple of years”.
“The suffering is over… she suffered for a good two years,” she said.
“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.”
Samantha was one of the 15 famous faced who entered the ‘CBB’ house on Thursday (29 July) night.
