The confession came on Wednesday’s show, her second last before she officially steps down.
She explained how her Weekend Sunrise colleagues “had a farewell for me down at Bondi” on the Sunday before her move to weekdays and that she “got led astray by our boss.”
“I don’t look like it though do I? I can’t handle a hangover like that these days,” she joked.
Saying what we were all thinking, Armytage admitted that despite having a sore head, she still “fronted up and looked fresh.”
“See, you’ve never known that for eight years!”

“Now it’s time to spend a bit and only after I feel refreshed, and after I take a break, will I decide on my next chapter.”
