Former Sunrise Host Sam Armytage Admits She’s Been DRUNK On Air But Got Away With It Because ‘No One Noticed’
Sam Armytage has admitted that she has been “drunk on the air” while presenting Sunrise.
The former co-host of Seven’s top-rated breakfast show made the shocking revelation while speaking to Karl Stefanovic about his something to talk about podcast.
‘I mean, hello, we’ve all been drunk on air!’ the 45-year-old man said.

Stefanovic, 47, was still drunk when he hosted Nine’s Today the morning after a long, drunken night at the 2009 Logie Awards.
However, Sam said his drunkenness wasn’t that obvious, admitting, “I was sneaky.” I was not in the newspapers. Nobody knew.
‘Thank you, finally an admission!’ responded Stefanovic, his former rival on breakfast television, before joking that his anecdote would probably generate a flurry of headlines.
“Karl gets a terrible admission from Sam: ‘I was drunk too! No one noticed,” he laughed.

Armytage resigned from Sunrise in March last year, saying she wanted to spend more time in the country with her new husband, Richard Lavender.
She said last month that she couldn’t be happier since trading in a busy life in Sydney for a quieter existence in Bowral, NSW.
“I met a divine and decent man, sweeter than the sweetest rose,” he told New Idea of his marriage to Lavender, an equestrian businessman.
‘I found the love of my life at 42. How lucky am I? And I realized that you don’t find life happy, you make it.’

During the same interview, Armytage described his role in Sunrise as a “high-pressure, adrenaline-pumping, heavily analyzed job.”
On his last day at Sunrise, Armytage fired a parting shot at the ‘bullying’ media.
Things took a serious turn at the end of the broadcast when she broke down in tears and accused ‘some aspects of the media’ of treating her unfairly.
“I want to say that I never fully understood the scrutiny, sarcasm and intimidation of some aspects of the media,” he said.

“But today we move on from that, because it’s starting a new chapter and it’s been overwhelmingly a good experience in my life.”
She continued: ‘Most of all, I thank all of our viewers. You are wonderful people. There are so many lovely people. Much more beautiful than unpleasant.
Since leaving Sunrise, Armytage has filmed a guest role on Farmer Wants a Wife and has also been recording a podcast for Stellar magazine.
