Sam Fox and her new bride Linda Olsen only had eyes for each other on Tuesday as they made the most of their European honeymoon, just days after exchanging vows in Essex.
The former Page Three girl married Norwegian tour manager Linda, her partner of six years, in a Eurovision Song Contest themed ceremony at the Kings Oak Hotel in Epping Forest last Saturday.
And they appeared to be embracing their first week of married life by smothering each other with kisses while relaxing by the outdoor pool in the grounds of their lavish hotel.

Congratulations! Sam was pictured in her wedding dress as she arrived at the King’s Oak hotel in Epping Forest ahead of her wedding to Linda last Saturday
Dressed in a plunging pink kaftan, Sam, 56, couldn’t keep her hands off long-term partner Linda while enjoying an al fresco breakfast, during which the couple playfully fed grapes to one another using only their mouths.
With temperatures soaring the ex-model later cooled off in the pool, where she swam lengths while Linda – who appeared to match her new wife in a green version of the same bohemian outfit – looked on.
The couple have travelled to an undisclosed overseas location for a mini-break after exchanging vows during a flamboyant ceremony with a nod to the Eurovision Song Contest.
Former Page 3 girl Sam walked down the aisle with her long-term partner after they were forced to postpone their 2020 wedding due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sam looked incredible in a strapless white bridal gown as she sheltered under umbrellas while arriving at the ceremony with members of her wedding party.
Her stunning wedding dress featured a sparkling sequinned bodice and a long draping train, while she also opted for a dramatic veil which billowed out behind her as she walked.
One dedicated member of her wedding party walked behind her and held her train and veil in the air, giving a peak at her gorgeous silver wedged heels.

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.
Samantha recently told OK! magazine that after postponing their initial wedding due to the Covid pandemic, they planned to wait so their loved ones can attend from around the world.
During the interview, Sam revealed her ‘great mate’ Motörhead lead singer Lemmy – who died in 2015 – had offered to step in and walk her down the aisle after her father died.
Sam’s father Patrick, who managed her career until 1991, died in 2000.

Sam previously spoke about Linda in 2017 after coming out of the Celebrity Big Brother House.
During her time on the show, Sam told former Geordie Shore star Marnie Simpson: ‘I’ve now [fallen] in love with another woman.’
‘I met somebody a couple of months ago and I’m very happy. As you get older life goes so quick.’
She also discussed her sexuality whilst inside the house, and said she hadn’t fallen in love with a woman until she met Myra.
Sam explained: ‘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.’

Sam originally gave a statement about her sexuality in 2003 – the year she embarked on a relationship with Myra- after much speculation.
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.
‘All I know is that I’m in love with Myra [Stratton, my manager]. I love her completely and want to spend the rest of my life with her.’
Samantha added she had been reluctant to come out because, having already dealt with obsessed stalkers and feared fans’ possible reactions.
