The studio then burst into laughter before Nat said: “Okay, I’m going.”

Sam then joined Nat as she looked on in disbelief. 

“I’m with Nat. See ya! That’s disgusting,” Armytage joked as she left Kochie by himself at the news desk.

The funny clip comes after Sam returned to the Sunrise studio after taking a long break due to a chest infection.

In a message posted to her Instagram Story, Sam announced she was taking a few weeks off work as a precautionary measure due to the coronavirus pandemic.  

“Hi all… I’m taking a few weeks off work as I’ve had a respiratory infection (for three months) since the bushfires and it just won’t heal,” Sam wrote at the time.
