Fresh from from fighting off rumours that Angie Kent’s appearance on The Bachelorette was for fame rather than love, the reality TV veteran and her Bachie boyfriend Carlin Sterritt appear to be in damage control mode.

Just days after Carlin hit back at claims Angie only appeared on the show to promote her new memoir If You Don’t Laugh You’ll Cry, the couple have been flaunting their romance on their current holiday in Vietnam.

On Tuesday, The F45 trainer shared a picture of himself and Angie on their getaway during a sweaty gym session.

“Couples who train together… will most likely be hitting the bar together,” he wrote in the caption.

Over the weekend, the hunky personal trainer spoke to the Daily Mail to clear up claims that his former Gogglebox star girlfriend only agreed to appear on The Bachelorette to boost her career.

“I had watched a few episodes of Angie on Gogglebox,” Carlin said at the 29-year-old’s Sydney book launch over the weekend. “She’s exactly who she is now, which is just awesome.”

According to New Idea, while Carlin is adamant Angie applied for the hit dating series in a genuine attempt to find the man of her dreams, many of his co-stars remain unconvinced.

“I have mutual friends with her and asked my mates and they said she’s nothing like what you see,” one former Bachelorette star wrote in a group chat among the show’s contestants. “I’m sure he [Carlin] is [on there for love]. But she isn’t.”

“She only wants fame,” another added.

Another source echoed a similar sentiment, saying, “She was jobless before the show, she wasn’t allowed back on Gogglebox, she was doing nothing after I’m A Celeb. Now coincidentally, she’s releasing a book. This whole thing is a publicity stunt for her to get more famous. She’s just climbing that ladder of fame.”

Despite currently being one of the most talked-about Aussie reality stars, Angie’s celebrity status doesn’t seem to have increased. Over the weekend, she was left red-faced when just 10 fans initially showed up to her book signing in Sydney.
