He’s the fastest hu­man ever timed, but the un­prece­dented tal­ent of Ja­maican sprinter Usain Bolt – who speaks to Stel­lar in this week’s Q&A – may also very well be the envy of break­fast hosts on Aus­tralian TV. Sa­man­tha Armytage – along with her Sun­rise co-host David Koch and To­day hosts Lisa Wilkin­son and Karl Ste­fanovic – is one of the most talked-about peo­ple in the coun­try. That those charged with an­chor­ing the small-screen in the early hours of the morn­ing have proven such a source of fas­ci­na­tion in re­cent years of­ten sees them pur­sued by pa­parazzi in ways that were once con­fined to in­ter­na­tional movie stars. Let’s just say they might find a Usain Bolt-es­que abil­ity to out­run cam­era-wield­ing strangers a handy tal­ent to pos­sess on such oc­ca­sions. As Armytage told writer Jor­dan Baker, “Be­ing fol­lowed by strange men with cam­eras while I’m putting my bins out is ridicu­lous.” In our cover story, Armytage breaks her si­lence over Undie-gate. Yes, Undie-gate… Ridicu­lous in­deed.
