Sam Armytage says Modern Family star 'definitely not gay'

SAM Armytage's five hour lunch with Modern Family star Eric Stonestreet which started with a Tweet does not mean they're an item.

Armytage faced a grilling from her own Sunrise gang on Monday after speculation that the two were dating.

"Can I say publicly that Samantha has denied any allegations of a romance, it was just a five-hour lunch," co-host David Koch said.

Armytage added: "Don't believe everything you read in the paper.

"There's nothing to talk about. There's nothing to say. It was a lovely lunch."

Natalie Barr stirred the co-star, saying: "You look good together."

Armytage replied by saying "he is a lovely man, very funny, very lovely. Very different".

"He's definitely not gay!"

Armytage, 36, and Stonestreet, 42, had lunch at Matt Moran's famed Chiswick restaurant.

Armytage initiated contact with the funnyman by tweeting on February 21 that she was dying to meet him while he was in town.

Almost instantaneously, the 42-year-old American replied: 'Lets organize this', later adding, 'Hi @sam_armytage I followed you. Step 1'.
