Samantha Armytage was rumoured to have signed a $250,000 deal with Weight Watchers to become their newest ambassador. 

But it’s now been reported that the Sunrise star was paid double that amount  to front the weight loss brand. 

The 42-year-old raked in a staggering $500,000 with her new partnership, according to reports in The Sydney Morning Herald on Monday.

The Daily Telegraph had initially claimed Samantha’s contract with WW is ‘likely to be worth $250,000’.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Samantha’s spokersperson for comment.  

The Channel Seven personality announced last week that she is the brand’s latest ambassador – as well as revealing she’s lost 10kg.  

‘Thrilled to announce I’m joining forces with Weight Watchers as their newest ambassador!’ Samantha wrote on Instagram.

‘Very excited about this modern, holistic company, which is now all about WELLNESS rather than just weight loss (although losing a few kg’s has been a nice bonus).

‘It’s such a simple, fun program… & you don’t have to go without anything. Join me on my new journey & let’s have positive body image for all!’

Armytage concluded: ‘Remember; it’s not about being skinny, it’s about being healthy & strong! xx.’ 

She has repeatedly insisted she isn’t on a ‘diet’ in the traditional sense, but instead is focusing on improving her overall health and wellness.

‘It’s about being healthy and feeling strong and fit,’ she said on Sunrise on Thursday. ‘It’s not all about weight loss – but guess what, I’ve lost 10 kilograms!’

Samantha has been able to incorporate regular exercise into her busy routine, despite waking up at 3.15am every weekday.

She works out at the gym twice a week, preferring boxing and weight training, and also walks her Labrador daily.

‘I feel great, absolutely fantastic,’ she told News.com.au earlier this week.

‘Being a bit lighter and having more energy throughout the day really helps. It’s a nice feeling and I want to keep going.’
