Celebrity Big Brother will launch on Thursday 16th August on Channel 5, at 9 pm.

Following the date confirmation, rumours about who will be in the house this year, as well as the frantic Google-searching to find out who some of these ‘celebrities’ actually are.

One person we do know a bit about is Samantha Markle, the half-sister of Princess Meghan.

We know that Samantha is, to put it bluntly, cashing in on her sister’s marriage into the Royal family. We also know that she is likely to be one of the main sources of drama this season.

But what else do we know? How old is she? What does she do for a living? What is her real name?

How Old is Samantha Markle?

Samantha Markle is 53-years-old. She was born in 1965, the year in which nothing particularly memorable happened (we Googled for ages for a witty anecdote).

Her exact birthday month and date can’t be found on the internet sadly, so we don’t know her star sign. If we had to hazard a guess, however, we’d say a Cancer.

What is Her Real Name?

Samantha’s real surname is actually Grant. She changed her name a few months ago to Markle for reasons unspecified. Again, we’re going to hazard a guess.

Perhaps she changed her name to Markle in order to better cash in on Meghan’s name and fame. In fact, we’re just going to say that it is 99% likely that that is the reason for her name change.

What Does Samantha Markle Do For a Living?

She has worked in media pretty much all of her life. Again, her exact roles in the various companies she has worked for are unspecified.

However, she is listed as an actress and a model, too. We know, right?

We suspect that now, however, she’ll have a bit of a career change and try to become a TV personality – probably in the veins of a Piers Morgan or a Katie Hopkins. Because we really need another one of them, right?
