So now, Sam is tackling her body image fears head on by joining the cast of the The All New Monty: Guys & Gals, stripping off in the name of charity to help raise money and awareness for women's cancers.
In a new trailer for the Channel 7 special, which Sam posted on her Instagram page over the weekend, the Home And Away beauty opens up about her body image insecurities.
"I feel a battle I'm forever facing is feeling comfortable in my own skin," a teary Sam explains in the teaser.
"When I'm self-conscious about losing weight or gaining weight, it's all over the news. I already know I'm not looking my best, I don't need you to remind me," the 31-year-old adds.

In another scene, Sam can be seen being comforted by one of the show's producers, who tells her: "Anytime you feel like crying, just go off and do it!"
Despite the confronting task of stripping naked on national TV, Sam still manages to find the humour in the daunting situation.
"But this is for a greater cause... Might as well strip off on TV, that'll fix it," she laughs.
