On What She Would Do If She Didn't Make It With a Singing Career: I always had a back-up plan. My Dad was fantastic like that. I remember my Dad saying at school. "Take typing Sam, 'cause you never know. You can fall back on being a secretary if nothing else works." I remember taking typing, which I hated. I did look at other careers, although when I was in the sixth form at school, we had to go a careers teacher and tell them what we wanted to do for a living. I said I wanted to be famous. I said I wanted to be a singer, an actress. I wanted to be a star. They're looking at me like I'm very modest. "You're very modest, Samantha. You've got to pick something." Then I said "OK. I want to be a policeman. Really, I want to be a private detective. I want to by-pass that a bit and be a plain clothes police." (laughs) They just laughed at me. So, I had to write to the police force 'cause I had to show that I was really looking for a proper job. So, I wrote to Hendon Police Force and they wrote back to me saying I was too short. I was quite pleased, actually. (laughs) So, remember, I was still in school when I became famous. It was very odd to go straight into show business.
