New Sunrise anchor Natalie Barr has revealed for the first time she didn't have a close relationship with her predecessor Sam Armytage.

When asked about rumours the two women did not get along, Natalie told The Australian Women's Weekly they weren't friends outside the workplace.

The 53-year-old said that while the pair 'got along very well in the office', they rarely spoke after the cameras stopped rolling because they didn't have much in common.

'The truth is we didn't really see each other outside the office,' Natalie said.

Sam then hinted that she would make her return to TV 'one of these days'.

'We had vastly different lives, I guess,' the mother of two added. 'We were in different places. She was hanging with her friends, and I was spending time with my family.

'So, yes, were were in different places.'

Natalie's interview comes after she was reportedly rankled by comments Sam made in a newspaper column in February about working mothers in the TV industry.

Sam - who quit Sunrise in March, making way for Natalie to replace her - claimed she'd been assigned more work than her female colleagues in the past simply because she was unmarried and childless.

She said 'bosses don't ask as much of you if you're a wife or mother', adding: 'I've never shied away from hard work, but there was an expectation that Sam would do it because she's got nothing else going on.'

US to investigate Trump-era seizures of Democrats’ phone data

  US to investigate Trump-era seizures of Democrats’ phone data Calls grow for former attorneys general Bill Barr and Jeff Sessions to testify about the data seizures.The announcement by Inspector General Michael Horowitz came shortly after Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco made the request on Friday. Horowitz said he would examine whether the data turned over by Apple followed the department policy and “whether any such uses, or the investigations, were based upon improper considerations”.

At the time, many TV insiders wondered how Natalie would have reacted to this bold statement, given that she regularly picks up international assignments and fills in for colleagues at short notice, despite being married with two teenage children.

For months before her departure, rumours had swirled that Sam, 44, didn't get along with Natalie, who was Sunrise's newsreader before stepping up to the main desk.

Sources also claimed she didn't see eye to eye with her co-anchor David 'Kochie' Koch either.

These whispers were seemingly confirmed when Natalie and Kochie didn't attend Sam's leaving party at the Catalina restaurant in Sydney's Rose Bay on March 11.

Eyebrows were raised yet again in May when it emerged Sam didn't follow either of them on Instagram, despite following many other Seven colleagues.

  The co-star feuds you didn't know about Entertainment is a competitive business, so it shouldn't be surprising that there might be a few, er, disagreements between stars. Of course, no one would ever know - any given breakfast or radio show in Australia is all smiles, friendly banter and seamless chemistry.

Sam downplayed this snub on her News Corp podcast earlier this month, saying: 'I don't think I unfo... I don't think anyone's following anyone in there.'
