Samantha Fox: I was scared to label my sexuality
Samantha Fox has opened up about her sexuality during an appearance on Loose Women.
The singer, reality star and former glamour model was devastated earlier this year by the death of her partner of over a decade, Myra Stratton.
Fox had only come out publicly back in 2003, when declaring her love for Stratton.
She said: at the time: “I have slept with other women but I’ve not been in love before Myra Stratton. People say I’m gay….I don’t know what I am.”
Speaking on Loose Women, Fox revealed that her perception of her sexuality has shifted, as she has entered another relationship with a woman.
She said: “I was a bit scared. People in Britain do know about it, and on Big Brother I talked about it. It was a good chance to speak about it in my own words.
“I did sit on the fence a little bit… I said I don’t believe in labels.
“For a long time I was a bit scared, because I did feel maybe – I’ve got of male fans and female fans too – and I was scared I would lose that fanbase.”
Asked if she was worried it would be bad for business, she said: “Yes.”

Fox continued: “The fact I was with Myra for 16 years and now I am in love again with another woman.
“It’s just I would say I prefer to be with women.
“It’s lovely being in love, don’t ever forget that. Be true to yourself.”
Speaking on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this year, she said: “It wasn’t until I met Myra, really, that I fell in love with a woman.
“I just believe that love is far greater than anything. You can’t help who you fall in love with.
“If you fall in love with somebody, you fall in love with them. You can’t help that can you.”
