Samantha Fox in court over drunken fight with wife on British Airways flight

The former page-three model Samantha Fox has admitted to being drunk and disorderly in alleged scrap with her wife on a British airways flight.

The glamour model and pop star, 57, threatened a police officer when she was arrested and spent a night in a police cell after the incident on the BA flight from London Heathrow to Munich, which stopped the plane taking off.

Passengers were reportedly asked to disembark and were accommodated in a hotel before continuing their journey the next day, according to The Sun.

Fox has previously expressed her deep regret for any inconvenience caused and said she would cooperate with any investigation.

She appeared at Uxbridge magistrates’ court on Friday charged with being drunk on a plane and assaulting Linda Olsen, 47, on Dec 3 2023.

Fox pleaded guilty to drunk and disorderly behaviour but denied assault by beating.

The 57-year-old also pleaded guilty to threatening behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress towards Pc Ashley Smith.

She appeared at court carrying a handbag and wearing a black blazer.

Fox appeared regularly as a page three model in the Sun from 1983 until 1986, becoming one of the most photographed British women of the 1980s and a prominent sex symbol of the age. She left modelling in the late 80s to pursue a career in singing.

She had hits including Touch Me (I Want Your Body) and Nothing’s Gonna Stop Me Now.

Fox and Olsen started dating in 2016, a year after the death of Fox’s former partner Myra Stratton.

The couple were married in a Eurovision Song Contest-themed ceremony in Epping Forest, Essex, in June 2022.
