‘That was with Patrice, but that was a number of years ago now,’ explained a seemingly taken aback Sam.
‘You are going harder than New Idea, Kochie. This is unexpected.’
Sam this week tells New Idea of his love life: ‘When you’re away so much and then you get home, you want to sleep or you want to catch up with a mate who you haven’t seen for months.
‘It sounds like I’m making excuses, but, having said that, I am very fussy.’
‘I could give you a long list. I’ve had a long-term relationship which was great, seven years, and we’re still friends, she’s a big part of my life. But I think when that ended, and I’ve had quite a few years now of being single, it means that if I don’t have something that’s that or better than that (then what’s the point) ...’
Kochie also cornered Sam on claims he wants the star’s job, with Sam cheekily responding, ‘I want your salary.’
‘My mum is really pumped for this, she’s an avid reader of New Idea. So this is really my finest moment through my mum’s eyes.’
