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. 

Sam and Linda’s engagement was announced in March 2020, with a source telling The Sun at the time: ‘Sam and Linda are so happy together and want to spend the rest of their lives together. They’re so in love and want to make it official.’  

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.

Asked if she plans 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.’

Meanwhile, the happy couple were spotted at Covent Garden flower market getting floral ideas for their big day with the help of celebrity florist Warren Bushaway from London Event florist. 

Samantha spoke about Linda in 2017 after coming out of the Celebrity Big Brother House.

During her time in CBB, 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 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.
