"Giddy-up!": Sam Armytage reveals ANOTHER new gig
She’s the former Sunrise host who is set to join the cast of Farmer Wants a Wife in the New Year.
Samantha Armytage revealed she has another exciting TV project on the horizon.
The 45-year-old will be joining the ‘incredible’ horse racing team at Channel 7, where she will report from the marquee events during racing season.
Sharing the news to Instagram, Sam couldn’t hide her excitement as she threw in a spirited ‘giddy-up.’
‘Thrilled to be heading back to TV & back to @channel7 next year, helping out on @farmeraustralia & joining the incredible team @7horseracing for marquee events…giddy up and & can’t wait.’
This comes after Channel Seven confirmed Sam – who stepped down as host of Sunrise in March – will join the upcoming season of dating show Farmer Wants a Wife as a guest star.
On Tuesday morning, the network announced Sam, who married wealthy farmer Richard Lavender late last year, will assist with the matchmaking process alongside host Natalie Gruzlewski.
‘I’m thrilled to be joining Farmer Wants a Wife in 2022,’ she said at the time.
‘I’ve always been a huge fan of the show and of country people and I know first-hand that falling in love with a farmer is just about the most wonderful thing you can do.’
Her guest role will involve hosting a segment called Sam’s choice in which she introduces the farmers to a ‘new lady based on her own expertise and experience.’
Angus Ross, Seven’s Director of programming said the network was ‘thrilled to welcome Sam back to our screens’.
