Celebrity Big Brother 2013: Sam Robertson

Age 27

Star Sign Libra

Home Town Dundee

Acting heartthrob Sam is best known for his time on the cobbles of Coronation Street playing Adam Barlow. As well as Corrie, Sam has appeared in Scottish soap River City, Sky One’s The Match and E4’s Beaver Falls.

Sam’s boyish good looks saw him modelling to help pay his way through University. Of his modelling days, Sam admits: “I had long hair and thought I was Liam Gallagher.”

Taking the model-turned-actor route, Sam joined the cast of Corrie having never acted before. “I was 18 and I’d not done any acting whatsoever. I went along to the audition and after a couple of call-backs I got it. So that was me, going from being a student with no acting experience to suddenly being on the set within six weeks.”

Sam left the soap after three years because he felt he had become ‘public property’. He worked on his acting and came back in 2009 as Flynn in teen comedy drama Beaver Falls. His character had many saucy scenes with the boss’s wife, played by the beautiful Alison Doody. Of his sex scenes, Sam said: “My character gets a lot of action and I wasn’t complaining!”

Keeping to the cougar theme, Sam says: “Most guys in their twenties fancy older women. Don’t get me wrong, there has to be something more than just being older! They have to be super-hot too. But I think most guys our age think about it.”
