Sam Armytage’s secret ‘exorcism’

‘Sunrise’ host Samantha Armytage has revealed the action she took after the old country miner's cottage “kept hurting me”.

Samantha Armytage is the very definition of a straight shooter. The Sunrise host has become revered for her no-BS attitude and down-to-earth journalism.

But it seems that, like many, she can still get a little freaked out by those creepy unexplained instances that are sprinkled through life, like, you know, a haunted house.

In her Sunday column in The Daily Telegraph’s Stellar magazine, the 43-year-old wrote about a beloved old miner’s cottage she used to live in that didn’t quite love her back.

“Despite my adoration, the bloody house kept hurting me,” she wrote.

“Open windows would suddenly slam shut on my fingers. The shower would turn scalding in an instant. All things I’m sure could be explained by even the most over-priced, half-arsed builder.”

So what did Sam do? She enlisted the help of a professional to get rid of those bad vibes.

“Instead, I called in the local priest for a little real-estate 'exorcism' of sorts,” Sam wrote.

“And that lovely man came over, had a cup of tea and then splashed a bit of holy water around. Bless him. And the old girl calmed down. The house was also better behaved.”

While Sam might’ve upgraded from that country abode, she now spends much of her time at her partner Richard Lavender’s 40-hectare property in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales.

Last week, the journalist confirmed her relationship with Lavender for the first time, telling WHO magazine, “his eyes were the first thing I saw… There was a connection.”

“We both enjoy horses, skiing, architecture, art… That’s really important to have a lot in common. And so far, so good,” she told WHO.

“He doesn’t care what people think of him, which I admire greatly. He’s very decent,very honest. I love that he’s so modest.”
