A fed up Samantha Armytage has expressed growing frustration with 'rubbish' media delving into her personal life - amid her blossoming relationship with a new boyfriend.

In a fiery Instagram post on Monday, the Sunrise host took aim at several publications, including the Sunday Telegraph in which she writes a weekly column.

'The silliness in the tabloids around my private life has now reached peak stupidity,' she fumed.

And it is not the first time the TV star has gone on a tirade against media who she accuses of fuelling gossip about her private life.

'Here’s just the latest example of the silly, nasty, tabloid bulls**t that surrounds me most days', she previously wrote on Instagram .

But Samantha's well-documented outrage at the so-called gossip media doesn't appear to extend to regular discussions about celebrities on Sunrise, which she hosts alongside David Koch. 

Since joining Seven's ratings-winning breakfast show in 2011, the blonde reporter  has regularly delved into the private lives of celebrities and Royals alike.

Burn: On Monday, Samantha doubled down on her claims about 'rubbish journalism' by tweeting, 'There’s a special place in hell for the people who work @WomansDayAus'

Clearly the Sunrise host has had enough of the paparazzi following her and the 'boring' stories she claims are 'made up' to suit the pictures. 

But no sooner had Samantha posted her latest tirade, than some of her own followers politely pointed out how similar types of paparazzi  photos were splashed on the screen during her own show's 'entertainment news' segments.

Celebrity gossip, particularly about big stars including , Amal Clooney and Bradley Cooper, is regular fodder for Samantha and her co-hosts on on Sunrise.

   

Perhaps the most memorable example of Samantha's interest in celebrity gossip took place in March 2015, when she was involved in a botched interview with Khloé Kardashian. 

Samantha had asked the reality star a question about North West, the daughter of Khloé's sister Kim and rapper Kanye West.

Moments after Khloé responded, her minders pulled the plug on the interview and the screen went blank.  

Later on, Samantha and her co-host David Koch told viewers that Khloé had abandoned the interview because of the personal nature of the question. 

Khloé denied this, however, tweeting afterwards: 'Why would I cut an interview short because of North? Get over your self Sunrise... The call dropped... stop reaching for a story.'

AMAL CLOONEY 

 In June 2017, Samantha ruffled feathers when she took aim at George Clooney's wife Amal and her post-baby body. 

Entertainment reporter Angela Cox was in the middle of announcing that Amal had delivered twins that morning, when Samantha interjected: 'Come on - I bet she's already back to her pre-pregnancy weight today!'

'By lunchtime,' added Sunrise newsreader Natalie Barr.

Not a fan, Sam? During the segment, Samantha claimed that she doubted the human rights lawyer would ever lose her temper, saying: 'As if Amal would yell?'

PARIS JACKSON 

A year later, in June 2018, Samantha hit out at Michael Jackson's daughter Paris for refusing to talk to media about her late father while visiting Australia. 

'If you're not allowed to ask her about Michael Jackson, why is she here?' she asked. 

Continuing to complain about Paris' antics, Samantha said: 'She was bragging that she didn't know what the races [Spring Racing Carnival] were. She'd never been, she didn't care. You know, some of us enjoy it.'

 BRADLEY COOPER 

In June 2019, Samantha hosted her own segment about Bradley Cooper's shock split from Irina Shayk. 

During the segment, Samantha discussed rumours published in People magazine about the couple 'living very separate lives' prior to their break-up.
