Linda told how the couple hit it off when they met at a meet and greet as Linda was a fan of singer and glamour model Sam. 

Sam added: ‘I’ve met a few of my heroes and was very disappointed….but thank God she wasn’t. And thank God I’m not that kind of person!’

The couple had a traditonal wedding, with Sam revealing they didn’t see each other the night before the big day.

The former model was given away by her mother Carole and stepfather Colin, who walked her down the aisle on crutches after recently breaking his femur.

Sam added that she considers herself a ‘bonus mum’ to Linda’s two sons Adam and Noah, rather than a stepmother as she thinks the term too ‘Cinderella’. 

Discussing their wedding guests, Sam said: ”With two females, we tend to have more friends than men…the only people really there were the people we really love…

‘There was a lot of love in the room. Linda did the seating plan and she was amazing…I dealt with the flowers.’

Meanwhile, Sam and Linda also told the Loose Women panel they reckon they have a ghost in their house after a series of strange occurances.  

Sam said seven or eight discs hanging on her wall just suddenly came down, adding: ‘bowls of fruit where apples have just come out. 

‘We’ve got used to, Linda’s seen the guy.’

Linda added: ‘I suddenly saw a guy in the door opening…we didn’t believe it either!’

Sam looked incredible in a strapless white bridal gown at her wedding party, which saw the happy couple cut into a pink three-tier cake, with performances from Norwegian pop duo Bobbysocks – consisting of bandmembers Elisabeth (Bettan) Andreassen and Hanne Krogh. Lisa Stokke also performed. 

Sam started a relationship with Linda in 2016, and previously said she was in a ‘really good place’ after her partner of 12 years, Myra died in 2015 from cancer.

The former glamour model, who recently suffered a cancer scare after finding a lump in her vocal cords, announced in 2018 she had finally found love again with the Norwegian single mother-of-two.

Sam arrived at the lavish ceremony in a white taxi decorated with pink ribbons and a stunning blush heart-shaped floral arrangement on the bonnet, while the number plate read ‘Sam and Linda are getting married, 18th June 2022’.

It comes after a source confirmed to MailOnline that Sam Fox was set to ‘tie the knot with fiancĂ©e Linda on Saturday’.

Last month, Linda shared her excitement at finding her wedding dress, sharing a snap of herself in David’s bridal in Stratford alongside the caption: ‘Our big day is getting closer’.

While a representative of Sam confirmed to MailOnline: ‘Wedding nuptials are on the cards – Sam and Linda are looking forward to a glorious day’.

The happy news comes six years after Samantha lost her beloved long term girlfriend of 12 years, Myra Stratton, to cancer.

Asked if she planned to invite any celebrity friends, Sam said: ‘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.’
