She recalled asking the breakfast TV host, 44, on her thoughts about leaving the ratings winning Channel Seven program when the TV star spoke to Jackie and her co-host Kyle Sandilands back in January. 

Audio from that conversation was played on air, and at the time Jackie told Samantha that she was worried that she would give up hosting Sunrise.

But Samantha seemingly deflected the suggestion by saying ‘well, I’m under contract so I can’t. But I’m very happy with my job.’

‘It must’ve been! I did, I was getting the vibes big time. I should have asked her, when does your contract expire,’ Jackie quipped.
