There’s a curious story in today’s Sunday Telegraph which fuels a spat between Seven’s Chris Bath and Samantha Armytage.
It claims the two have a frosty relationship (ok it actually says “bitter rivarly”) at Seven’s Martin Place studios.
According to the report, the friendship turned sour after Bath allegedly overheard Armytage gossiping about her to a co-worker.
The most telling hint is that neither has denied it, at least according to the way the article is worded.
“Look there’s no comment,” said Armytage “We all get on at Seven. I get on with everybody at Seven.”
Bath also declined to comment yesterday.
If it’s true they would hardly be the first co-workers in the biz to be at odds in this most ego-driven of industries, but it’s not a good look. At least it doesn’t appear to have spilled over into on-air presenting, because viewers didn’t seem to buy the Chris Bath / Mike Munro chemistry for very long on Sunday Night.
