The Bachelorette EXCLUSIVE: Jamie Doran’s secret connection to Angie Kent before the show revealed …as ‘bombshell’ is set to explode
The Bachelorette firefighter Jamie Doran had an unlikely connection to Angie Kent long before appearing on the Channel 10 dating show.
Daily Mail Australia can reveal that during Angie’s years on Gogglebox, he became close friends with her co-star Symon Lovett, who is still on the program.
Bizarrely, Jamie has not mentioned the friendship to Angie, with Symon pretending not to know the suitor while reviewing the dating show on Gogglebox.

Unearthed pictures show Jamie and Symon travelling Europe together in 2017.
In one photograph, the pair are seen posing alongside a tourist attraction with another friend, and are later enjoyed a meal together.
Yet as Symon reviewed Jamie’s arrival on The Bachelorette during a recent episode of Gogglebox with co-star Adam Densten, he remained silent on their past.
‘You might as well not even be there,’ he said of Jamie as he greeted Angie with a dog on the red carpet of the first cocktail party.

As Jamie started crying later in the episode, Symon shouted, ‘What!’ – and once again failed to acknowledge his past with the reality television star.
Angie first found fame on Gogglebox from 2015 to 2018, before appearing on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in January and then The Bachelorette.
Symon and friend Adam have been contributors on Gogglebox since 2015.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel 10 for comment.
