Poor Angie Kent has no idea what she’s let herself in for on The Bachelorette.
Despite 39-year-old Jamie Doran making a huge impression on the former Gogglebox star during their first meeting, it turns out the firefighter has been harbouring a shocking secret.

A new report from New Idea has revealed that Doran enjoyed a secret hook-up with an American model in 2016.
Nine months later, in early 2017, she gave birth to a baby girl – putting Jamie at the very centre of a paternity scandal.
“Jamie met the model at a bar when he was travelling through the US,” an inside source tells New Idea. “They swapped numbers and stayed friends for a year. He went back a year later and they hung out again over a number of weeks.
“They ended up sleeping together. Jamie continued on with his travels.”
In 2017, the model gave birth whilst Jamie was enjoying some time in the UK.
“She rang him while he was in London and said, ‘I think this is your baby’,” says the source. “Jamie said it couldn’t be as he had used protection, but she insisted it was.”
In October 2017, New Idea reports that Jamie underwent a paternity test.
It turned out to be negative.
“He was totally relieved. Having a child at that point in his life was the last thing that he wanted.”
Jamie’s love child scandal follows news that the hunky reality star is actually a professional actor, and made attempts to hide his former TV experience before entering The Bachelorette.
