Samantha Armytage looks tired after a romantic weekend with boyfriend Richard Lavender

As a breakfast TV presenter, Samantha Armytage is used to going to bed early and rising at the crack of dawn. 

So it was no wonder the 43-year-old appeared rather weary as she jetted into Sydney with her new boyfriend Richard Lavender late on Monday night. 

Returning from a romantic weekend away on Hamilton Island, the pair appeared slightly tired as they made their way through the arrivals terminal together.

Didn’t get much sleep? Makeup-free Samantha Armytage, 43, looked tired as she arrived back in Sydney after a romantic weekend away with her new boyfriend Richard Lavender on Monday night 

Samantha went makeup-free for the low-key arrival, donning a white T-shirt and matching linen trousers that showcased her recent 10kg weight-loss. 

Looking effortlessly trendy, the beloved journalist covered her shoulders with a caramel-coloured cardigan. 

Opting for comfort over glamour, Samantha slicked her sandy mane back into a no-fuss chignon and slipped on a pair of canvas sneakers.

Samantha was also seen carrying tote bag emblazoned with Qualia resort logo- the luxury Hamilton Island hotel where the pair are rumoured to have stayed over the weekend. 

Samantha is no stranger to the celebrity-endorsed resort, having spent time there as recently as October last year. 

Meanwhile, her equestrian businessman beau pulled her suitcase alongside his own.

Aside from ritzy accessories and lavish holidays away, Samantha and Richard also share a passion for the great outdoors.

According to Woman’s Day magazine, the pair spend most weekends together in Richard’s Bowral hometown – the same place where Samantha owns a $2.2M five-bedroom retreat.  

‘Everyone in the Highlands is talking about Sam and Richard,’ an insider reportedly told Woman’s Day.

Last June, Sam had admitted she’d met someone special, and said she doesn’t like to talk about love interests unless she’s sure about them.

‘There are good things happening… I don’t talk about anyone before I’m 100 per cent sure, because you have to keep some things private,’ she told Who magazine.

Speaking to The Kyle and Jackie O Show at the time, Samantha admitted that even her Sunrise co-host David ‘Kochie’ Koch didn’t know the name of her ‘mystery man’. 

‘I’m happy to talk about everything except the secret lover!’ she said.
