The news comes after Sam confirmed she is dating former farmer Richard Lavender, 60, when they appeared as an item in the Sexiest People issue of WHO magazine.
Speaking to the publication, the TV presenter said one of the things she liked the most about her new beau was the fact that he had “no idea” who she was when they first met.
However, after several weeks of getting to know each other, Sam confessed that she finally encouraged Richard to watch Sunrise – just so he could find out what she did for a living.
The couple met each other through a mutual friend, with Samantha telling WHO there was instant chemistry from the outset.
“We both enjoy horses, skiing, architecture, art… That’s really important to have a lot in common. And so far, so good,” Samantha said.
Richard added he was “instinctively attracted” to Samantha, even before they realised they shared a love for horses and country living.
He went on to say that the 43-year-old has a terrific sense of humour and is surprisingly natural given her being a TV personality.
“I think a lot of the people who are in showbusiness are a bit flouncy... I’ve seen a few celebrities in public - it’s not always attractive,” he said.
