She wrote:

Myra worked as Sam’s manager for four years, before the pair began a romantic relationship in 2003.

In 2008, Sam and Myra starred on an episode of ‘Wife Swap’ that saw former glamour model Sam play host to Freddie Starr, while his wife Donna moved in with Myra.

Sam opened up about her relationship with Myra during her time with Freddie, telling the cameras: "If she wasn't there my world would fall apart. She's my soulmate and the person I have been looking for all my life."

She also discussed her relationship in 2009, during a stint in the 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' jungle.

"We’re engaged, we got engaged this year in Thailand," she told fellow camper George Hamilton. "The first year we met we both got tattoos on our fingers, we knew, I knew she was going to be my soulmate for the rest of my life.

"Myra makes me feel safe, she’s motherly which I love."
