“Yep, you’re right, Paul has gone and we couldn’t be happier about it,” a friend told Sunday Confidential.

“He wasn’t good for her and all her close friends knew it.”

“Her new boyfriend isn’t well-known or in the industry and she really doesn’t want his name out there in case the attention jeopardises the relationship. But he is a good guy and good for her.”

The journalist – who was recently announced as Weight Watchers new ambassador – opened up about her love life during a chat with Kyle and Jackie O

The conversation started with Kyle and Jackie praising the Channel Seven tv presenter’s 10kg weight drop, but it wasn’t long before Kyle was grilling the anchor about her rumoured romance.

“Are you sure it’s the Weight Watchers that’s taking the weight off, or is it the love making with the news love?” the outspoken shock jock asked.

Blushing, Samantha replied: “What new lover?”

“I know you don’t talk about it – that’s why I brought it up. There’s got to be someone!” Kyle pressed.

“There’s some interest – I’m in a good spot in my life,” Samantha answered coyly, before admitting she never talks about her relationships, even with co-host Kochie, until she’s “100 percent sure – like almost married to them”.
