Can someone please chase Fox down a hole?


SHE'S a celebrity? Get out of here.
Topless model-turned-singer-turned-reality TV contestant Samantha Fox probably hoped to capitalise on renewed interest off the back of her visit to the Australian jungle with a new Greatest Hits.
But this compilation is a lot like her fleeting appearance on I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here - there's about five minutes of retro kitsch appeal before it all gets grating.
That five minutes is of course her biggest hit Touch Me (I Want Your Body) - which is followed by an onslaught of dire '80s pop-by-numbers that just gets worse and worse.
By the forgotten likes of Naughty Girls (Need Love Too) and Love House I was losing the plot - yet this latest compilation has the option of a second disc of rarities and previously unreleased material.
Ultimately Fox will be remembered for two things - and neither of them are on show here.


  1. I refer of course to her modelling work and her going completely bonkers in a cape on reality TV show The Club (, you dirty-minded surfers.

  2. Oh, come on - you just can't make up shit like this. It' piceless comedy!

  3. Touch Me (I Want Your Body)? I mean, I have a pretty wide-ranging knowledge of random 80s hits, but this one is lost on me. So I guess she really is more memorable for her modeling.

  4. And Touch Me (I Want Your Body) was her biggest hit too.
