More about Sam

From A-Z, here's everything you ever needed to know about Samantha Vangeen

ANORAK…..Do you have a sad side?
Seriously…… no……unless I’m crying

BODY…… What physical attribute would you most like to change?
Oh dear, I feel Mother Nature gave me a big mouth instead of boobs. I don’t know if I would have the guts to go under the knife as you hear and see so many horror stories but if I could make my boobs slightly bigger that would be what I would change and also I would love to have longer flowing locks, as it’s another part of my body that does not grow!!...

CELEBRITY….. Which one would you most like to meet and why?
I have been fortunate enough to meet numerous showbiz types including the likes of the Jamilia, Mark King, John Barrowman, Julian Clarey and the Freemasons to name a few, but I really would love to have a night in with Robbie Williams…..because he is meant to be my next husband.  On the screen I would like to meet Brad Pitt and George Clooney for also the same reason.  Men on wheels would be Lewis Hamilton and Valentino Rossi and the dead ones would be Jessie James and John Goodman.

DEBUT …..Tell us about your first ever show?
I started at BFBS in Belize, South America while I was traveling with my (now ex) squaddie boyfriend in 1998 and loved the fact that I could play music and flirt with 750 soldiers, I was really nervous but lots of them called up for requests and I really got involved.  It also made life a lot more fun around the camp. 

ERROR ….. What’s been your worst?
Oh dear…really, I was doing my first paid show on 2CRFM and as I was still learning how to drive the desk my boss thought it would be a good idea to record the listener talking to me on air rather than take them live.  It was also meant to help me get used to talking to them.   Problem is the listener was really nervous and swore, I told her not to worry as I was recording it, so I told her to say it again without swearing.  What I didn’t realize was that I pressed the wrong button and the whole conversation did in fact go out live on air.    I have never made that mistake again. Now I will take you live to air and warn you DO NOT SWEAR YOU ARE LIVE!!!

FASHION VICTIM – Who are the best and worst dressed presenters at Heart?
Wyatt! And me if I haven’t done any washing and ironing!!!

GRAND….. If we gave you one right now what would you spend it on?
A flight to Thai land as I have friends and family there and hoping to go in the summer of 2010. But right now I need a new CD / IPod/ Radio for my car and a new bed. (The one I have at the moment is too big for my bedroom!!)

HOLIDAY. . . What’s your favorite destination?
Wow I have been to too many places and I loved them all so I couldn’t think of a favorite.  But I did have an amazing time in Egypt for New Year 2008.

IRRITATE . . . What’s your most annoying habit?
Smoking and talking too loud

JOKER…. Which presenter is the practical joker of the team?
Not sure yet ask me in 6 months.

KENNEL… Do you have any pets?
2 fantail goldfish called Gucci and Dior.

LAUGHTER…..What makes you laugh?
Most things, I love to smile and laugh, but a fun night out with my friends always makes me laugh and watching my niece Ariella laugh, I love hearing kids laugh
MEAN…. Who’s the tightest member of the Heart team?
Me at the moment as I have spent far too much on my new flat and do not have any money left.

NEVER…..What would you absolutely refuse to do?
That’s far too naughty to say on here….

OFF WORK…What do you do in your spare time?
Go to the cinema, the pub, dance, call my friends and go shopping, play guitar heroes on my Xbox and then there are the naughty things I do with a loved one.

PROUD MOMENTS …..What are you most proud of?
My various jobs in radio, my brother getting married and having a baby (well his wife had the baby) and my Parents (who are still married after 37 years)

QUEASY …..What turns your stomach?
People throwing up, liver and foir gras

RELAX…..How do you?
Get all nice and cozy in my bed with a good book or a great film

SCHOOL …where did you go?
I went to primary schools in Southgate (same place as Wyatt) Osidge School, then got sent to a girl’s school called palmers green high after my parents found out I was being bullied, then attended Mill Hill county High school at 13 years old and finished off at Barnet College.

TV …What are your favorite shows on telly?
I love the Apprentice, but I am hooked on most of the shows on sky TV, Grays’ anatomy, Britain’s and Americas next top model, desperate housewife’s, ghost whisper, Gossip girl, and just started watching the new Knight Rider and trophy wife’s.  Now that is rubbish soap but the naked male bodies in it make it all worthwhile!!  Mmmmm yummy

UNKNOWN…..Tell us something about yourself that no one else knows?
Ha ha I don’t think so

VOCAL…. Who is your favorite artist?
Depends on my mood but I am loving James Morrison at the moment.  I have a real eclectic mix of music and can listen to everything.

WORK…..If you hadn’t become a radio presenter what would you have done?
Any fast paced sales job.  (It is what I did before radio)

XRAY…..Any broken bones?
Erm, many many many years ago while at school we were playing kiss chase and I fell into a ditch and broke my ankle.  Unfortunately my ankle is still quite weak and can occasionally walk down the street and trip for no reason when my ankle decides to give way!  Grrrr

YIKES……What’s been your most embarrassing moment?
At a friend party I took the Mickey out of one of the girls for almost walking into glass patio doors, a few hours later that is exactly what I did.  Then a few years ago I did exactly the same thing while having a few drinks with friends.  Mmmmm keep those glass doors away from me please

ZOO…. If you were an animal, which one would you be?
An eagle so I can fly to any country I like for free!!!
