Samantha Armytage's Detest for Daily Mail
In June 2018, Samantha posted a screenshot on Instagram that showed the headline of a Daily Mail article mentioning her name. The headline was quite misleading when it stated Samantha's "words" about getting bored of the media mocking US President Donald Trump.
Samantha wasted no time to let her followers know that she had said nothing of that sort of thing and that Daily Mail was using her name and picture to attract people on their website.
The article had lots of quotes that apparently came out of Samantha's mouth, including an argument about the world being a better place if the citizens took more proactive approaches to criticize the leaders.
Samantha openly showed her disdain for Daily Mail on her Instagram and suggested her followers click out of the website. adding that it was the worst information delivering platform.
Samantha's Dating History Contains Shaun White And Michael Usher
Despite being the main target in the air of dating rumors, Armytage actually doesn’t have much to talk about her love life. She had been single since she split with hotelier partner Peter De Angelis in 2012. There were sparks of rumors of her dating reporter Shaun White when she had some quite intimate pictures of the two on Instagram.

But she soon denied the almost believable tittle-tattle by stating that he was just the show’s reporter and friend.
There was, however a short-lived relationship Michael Usher, the presenter of Seven News Sydney for the second time in June 2017. But they ended their romance as there were no apparent ‘sparks’ anymore.
Armytage also spilled on her ‘perfect guy’ on an interview with Jonathan Moran of Nova National Radio on 6 July 2017, revealing that she needed someone away from her industry and said:
For years and years I have talked about it and I’ve known that my country roots are important to me but nowadays I’ve realised that I really need it for my sanity I guess, to get back to the country and get my hands in the dirt and be in nature. It is really important (to me)
She then added of her potential partner, ‘I think someone who can appreciate all of that.’
Is She Married Or Single In 2018?
Now, you might think that after talking about the ‘right guy’ there might be some possibility of her dating someone.
Well, she was asked if she was dating anyone in an interview with Who magazine on 13 June 2018 to which she replied,
‘If I was, you would be the first to know. There are good things happening… I don’t talk about anyone before I’m 100 percent sure, because you have got to keep some things private.’
This makes it sure that we won’t be seeing Sam Armytage blabbering about her love life soon, let alone see her getting married.
