It’s a secret that TV bosses had been desperate to hide, but WHO can reveal that Gogglebox and I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Outta graduate Angie is looking for love on the 2019 season of the hit reality TV dating show.
The 29-year-old from the Sunshine Coast is set to start filming in just weeks, and will follow in the footsteps of Ali Oetjen and Sophie Monk.
Since she returned from the South African set of Celeb earlier this year, Angie has been enjoying time off with her family and friends, but now she’s ready to go back on TV in her search for love.
Angie first became well known on Gogglebox with her friend Yvie, displaying a great sense of humour - especially about men. A source says Angie is hopeful about finding love on the show, but she’s 'not desperate for a man in her life'.
'She’s a really simple girl who loves living near the beach,’ he said. 'She loves her family and loves her dogs. If she finds a man who hates dogs – he’d be out straight away.'
Angie told the Binge List podcast that although Gogglebox fame was fun, it wasn't rewarding financially, and she was looking forward to stepping up her career. It looks like she has succeeded.
‘I wouldn’t necessarily say we’re TV stars,’ Angie said at the time. ‘I mean we’re on TV but being stars involves having lots of money and I definitely don’t have any of that, that’s for sure.
‘But it’s nice to be recognised for being yourself, it’s really rewarding.’
The news that Angie is the new Bachelorette follows a mixed reception to the most recent series of The Bachelorette, which starred Ali Oetjen.
Warner brothers recently shared a casting call for men to participate in the show, sharing a photo of a man standing on top of a mountain.
'Dave takes risks.. Be like Dave, take a risk,' read a caption.
'If you're searching for that special someone and looking for love, the next season of The Bachelorette is casting right now...'
'If love is in your sights and you're ready to find The One.'
We can't wait to see Angie on The Bachelorette!
