It’s been quite a week for Sunrise host Sam Armytage.

Fresh from a furore over racist comments on air, the TV personality has been asked out, live on air, by Cash Cow winner Frank Hanna.

Frank, from southwest Sydney, promised to donate half of his $10,000 winnings to a charity of Armytage’s choosing if she promised to go out to dinner with him.

“That’s what I need – a little bit more attention this week,” Armytage, 38, quipped, as she was egged on by newsreader Natalie Barr and stand-in host Andrew O’Keefe.

Good on you for trying, Frank!
