We’ve all got that awkward first kiss story… However, for TV WEEK Gold Logie winner Samuel Johnson, it was a little more public than most.

The Love Your Sister co-founder took to Facebook to share the hilarious story of how he kissed Kate Ritchie while filming a scene for Home And Away as a teenager.

“Kate Ritchie was my first kiss. Not my first screen kiss. My first real, actual kiss. And it was on-screen!” he admitted.

“Many years later I hid from her when we were shooting Underbelly II, because I was so embarrassed. And now, without me having any clue, she’s gone and put her heart print in with Connie’s and mine, in support of ‘A Heart as Big as Yours’ – villager Maria Ramos’s $100,000 art fundraising project,” he wrote.

Kate also took to Instagram to raise awareness for the project.

She posted a photo with Maria writing, “We are here with my ceramic heart which will be one of 2000 surrounding the focal point of the artwork – the fingerprints of Love Your Sister co founder Constance Johnson who is in the final stages of breast cancer.”

Samuel appeared on Anh’s Brush With Fame this week. His portrait from the show went up for auction with the proceeds being donated to Love Your Sister.

Anh was also able to release 200 limited edition prints, with the profits also going straight to charity. More information in the post below.
