Sam Armytage gives a VERY awkward answer when asked why she doesn’t follow Sunrise co-stars David Koch and Natalie Barr on Instagram
In March, it was revealed that Sam Armytage is not following her former Sunrise co-hosts David ‘Kochie’ Koch and Natalie Barr, amid rumors of a strained relationship on set.
And on Wednesday, the 44-year-old gave a very vague response when radio host Kyle Sandilands was offended on the subject during a discussion on her own. Something to talk about podcasting.
The sassy KIIS FM star quizzed Sam: ‘I read you’re unfollowing Kochie and Nat! Have you stopped following these people?’

With an awkward laugh, Sam replied, “I don’t think I’m onfo…” before wandering off and adding, “I don’t think anyone in there is following anyone.”
Indeed, despite being colleagues for years, neither Kochie nor Natalie are among the 1.2k people Sam follows.
The couple, who are currently hosting Sunrise together since Sam’s departure in March, are still happy to follow her lead.

Gone: Sam’s still follows many of her former Seven colleagues, including Kylie Gillies and Sam Mac. However, a search for David Koch on her ‘next’ list returns no results
Not on the list: She doesn’t follow Natalie either, as seen here
Sam still follows many of her former Channel Seven colleagues, including Kylie Gillies, Sam Mac and Edwina Bartholomew.
It comes after Kochie, 65, and Natalie, 53, revealed they were not invited to Sam’s farewell party, which took place after her last day at Sunrise on March 11.
The pair were furious about Sam’s departure from The Kyle and Jackie O Show, and they admitted they weren’t even told about the shindig in Catalina in Rose Bay.
“We didn’t know about it and we had a postponed Christmas the next day,” Koch said.
The Sydney Morning Herald reported on March 8 that Sam and Kochie’s professional relationship had bottomed out in the months before her resignation.

The plot is getting thicker! It comes after Kochie, 65, and Natalie, 53, revealed they were not invited to Sam’s farewell party, which took place after her last day at Sunrise on March 11.
Network sources claimed they barely spoke off-camera and the dynamic between them had become “unsustainable” by early 2021.
Sam has previously said in her column for Stellar magazine that she is quite selective with the people she follows on social media.
She may not be following the current Sunrise hosts because she wants to move forward with that chapter in her life.
In March, after eight years, Sam stopped hosting Channel Seven’s breakfast show to spend more time with her family.
Her departure followed her intimate marriage to millionaire and businessman Richard Lavender on New Year’s Eve.
