In a shock twist for viewers on Monday, Sam Mac innocently handed the microphone over to James as they stood on the balcony of the harbour-front venue — and suddenly he proposed.
“Since the moment I met you, you’re everything I’ve ever wanted and more. I love you so much — will you marry me?,” James said, clearly nervous.

Sasha immediately said “yes”, as James slid the ring on to her finger.
James chose the perfect romantic moment on the venue’s red carpet under an archway of flowers.
The couple were flagged by family and friends, who burst into applause for the happy couple and were joined by the Sunrise panel as Sam threw back to the studio.
Sasha admitted the proposal was a surprise.
“I was not expecting that one — he just said, ‘we’re doing cooking classes’,” Sasha said.
But Sasha’s mother weighed in, admitting she had a feeling the proposal was going to happen.
“I’m very happy for them,” Sasha’s mother said.
“I did have a little hint (this was going to happen). Congratulations guys,” she added.
The couple shared a kiss afterwards.
“That is so special guys, a very special moment,” Sam Mac said.
Back in the studio, Nat joked that Sam Mac added his own touch to such events.
“One thing you can be sure of — Sam Mac will always make it a little bit awkward,” Nat said.
The comment saw a round of laughter from the panel, including Sam.
It comes after Sam himself announced his engagement to his stylist girlfriend Rebecca James last month.
Sam shared the good news on Instagram alongside a photo of James flashing her engagement ring.
“Ladies and gentlemen, my fiancé! She said yes,” he wrote.
“My secret 2023 New Year’s resolution was to propose to my darling Rebecca sometime this year. So I guess this is what you’d call a buzzer beater.
“She’s calm, strong and unintentionally funny. She’s super smart and a genuine knockout beauty.
“She makes me a better man.”
Mac and James welcomed baby Margot in September 2022, with the popular presenter earlier taking a month off for paternity leave.
“It’s my turn to be getting Margot up, feed her and basically becoming her personal assistant/servant,” he joked to 7Life.
“Margot’s changed so much, even in the past couple of months, so it’s super exciting to have some proper quality time with her.”
