Given all the best one-liners and a fabulous wardrobe to boot, Samantha Jones was a true role of a lifetime.

Sex and the City aired for six seasons from 1998 to 2004, with Ms Cattrall winning the Golden Globe for best supporting actress in 2003.

Straight-talking, fashion-loving, 40-something PR executive Samantha Jones was all about colour and glamour.

She seemed to have a never-ending supply of daring designer dresses, luxury handbags and incredible jewellery.
