“She’s wild and loves a drink!” David Koch gets candid about his co-host Samantha Armytage

Sunrise’s Samantha Armytage has managed to keep her personal life very private, but now her co-host David "Kochie" Koch is lifting the lid on her “wild” side.

Chatting to Kyle and Jackie O on KIIS FM, Kochie dished on what Samantha is really like.
“She’s certainly wild, she likes a drink,” he revealed about his 37-year-old colleague.
The Sunrise veteran wasn’t afraid to delve into Sam’s dating life either, explaining to the radio stars that “she’s still single" despite happily dipping her toe in the dating world.
Before discussing what the blonde beauty looks for in a man, “She has some characteristics she is looking for, blokes have got to be pretty tall, they’ve got to be athletic.”
He added: “A quirky one is that they must be able to drive a manual.”
“She actually dumped a Wallaby [player] because he couldn’t drive a manual because that’s not good form,” he explained. Kyle Sandilands asked the TV presenter “why does he have to be athletic?”
“Body shape and I suspect stamina,” Kochie quipped.
Sam has often found herself in the middle of reported feuds with Channel 7 colleagues, most famously apparently locking horns with former anchor Chris Bath.
However the Shine author is keen to focus on the future. “There’s obviously a lot of stuff going on behind the scenes, I seem to be a big target. Most of it isn’t true, might I point out,” she told News.com.au last month.
“If people don’t like me, that’s fine. If some people want to tie themselves in knots like that, go for it,” she added defiantly.
