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."
In spite of this, Angie maintains she really was looking to find the man of her dreams, hitting back a fan who recently argued Network 10 only asked the already famous star to appear on the show in an attempt to also boost the show's dwindling ratings.
"I love Angie but I know this season is for publicity for her and the dying show. She won't pick a winner it will be like Sophie Monk's season. They got a familiar face so we could relate and watch," one follower commented on a recent Instagram post of Angie's to which she replied: "No way in the world could be this vulnerable, emotional, completely out of my comfort zone all for a publicity stunt? I don't usually respond to stuff like this but it's on my page and I want to make it clear that I 100% went in hoping to find love. That is my qword. But please think as you see fit. X."
The shock claims come after she revealed she's planning to take her relationship with Carlin slow. Speaking in the current issue of Vogue Australia, Angie said she would be moving back to Sydney soon, but won’t be living with her fitness trainer boyfriend.
“I will be looking at moving back to Sydney at the beginning of next year,” said Angie, who currently lives in the Sunshine Coast.“That's kind of what we've had a chat about. Not together, we don't want to live together yet.
“We just want to have [a] nice, average, normal relationship where we get to go out on a date.”
But while they may be playing it safe with their living arrangements, Angie hasn't been shy about dishing on their sex life, admitting everything in the bedroom is "excellent"!
"Everybody thinks he's the nice little Christian boy, but watch out for those Christian boys. They're naughty," the 29-year-old said on the Kyle and Jackie O Show.
