After appearing on 'Celebrity Big Brother' and being a 'TOWIE' regular Sam Faiers is a fully paid-up member of the celeberatti. But where on the celebometre does she reside? Time to find out as we ask, Sam Faiers: how showbiz are you?
1. Who’s the most famous name in your mobile?
Ooh I’m not sure! Well, I think it’d have to be Joey (Essex).
2. Most bizarre thing you’ve ever read about yourself?
Definitely that I’d had fillers in my cheeks – I’ve never had them! I mean I’m only 23. You always read ridiculous things in the press and it's always a worry that people would believe that. Especially when I have young fans.
3. How much is too much for a haircut?
That depends, because hair extensions can cost a lot. But for a cut and colour, it would have to be a really good stylist for me to pay hundreds of pounds because hair grows so quickly!
4. Strangest place you’ve been recognised?
I was in Vegas last September and was drinking at a bar by the Bellagio fountain. And I thought it was unbelievable that an American recognised me! She was a big fan of TOWIE and said she’d read my book. She even came back to the bar with her copy of the book, so I was like “Oh my god, where did you buy it out here?”
5. Weirdest thing you’ve been sent by a fan?
I don’t think I’ve been sent anything weird. I love Minnie Mouse so I have lots of fans that send me themed Minnie Mouse stuff. I receive quite a few bracelets with fans’ names on, but nothing that I’d consider weird like pants or anything.
6. Best party ever?
There’s been so many! New Year’s Day just gone was really amazing, I held a Disney fancy dressed party for my birthday and it was so much fun. Of course I went as Minnie Mouse!
7. Ever used your fame to get what you want?
Not really, I can't imagine how and why people use their fame to get things. I don't really see myself as famous so what's the point?
8. How much cash would it take to get you to pose in the buff?
What, completely naked or in my bra and knickers? I don't think I'd ever do completely naked!
9. Best freebie you ever received?
You won’t believe me but I really love the vacuum cleaner Dyson sent me. It’s so amazing because believe or not, I absolutely love being at home in my pjs doing housework and staying on top of all my household chores!
10. Ever been chatted up by another celeb?
Oh no, what a question to ask! I have but I don’t want to name and shame anybody so I don’t think I should say. I’m not the sort of girl to kiss and tell!
A decidedly un-showbiz score for Sam. Yes, she might not balk at splashing out hundreds of pounds on a new 'do and might even appear to love a night on the razzle dazzle but really she prefers to be at home pushing her freebie vacuum cleaner around whilst, no doubt, boyf Joey looks on. Rock and roll!
