She also said that she was exhausted with the speculation and focus on her appearance, especially around the time she appeared on The Bachelorette and then her breakup with the show’s winner, Carlin Sterritt in 2020.
‘Everybody started talking about my weight and how much my face had changed,’ she told co-host Yvie Jones.
‘And I hadn’t had extra work at this stage,’ she added.
After reading articles about her looks and seeing ‘awful’ disparaging comments online, Angie decided to keep quiet about her fillers.
‘I was so sick of getting picked on that I was like, “I’m not gonna tell them how much filler I’ve had.” I don’t even know how much filler I’ve had.’

She then broke down in tears as she issued a public apology for not being honest about what she’d had done.
‘I also do want to apologise because I should have been more honest. I just told people I gained weight,’ she sobbed.
‘And I had obviously, but … I was so embarrassed and I was so sick of people talking about me,’ she sobbed.
‘I do feel guilty. I think if you get work done, always be honest about it.’

In January, 2021, Angie told her Instagram followers that her puffy cheeks were a result of her battle with endometriosis.
‘If another woman says to me, “What’s happened with your face?” I may scream,’ she began the lengthy post.
‘When I gain weight it goes to my munchkin cheeks. When I drop weight it mainly goes from my upper body very quickly.’

She also added that she is suffers from a ‘hormonal imbalance’ due to her endometriosis and has been diagnosed with Popolycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
‘I also have hormone imbalance from my endometriosis that I’m still navigating with my naturopath and a specialist,’ she continued.
‘I recently found out I also have PCOS AND quite large fibroid growing inside me. It’s an ongoing battle that I am taking day by day and awaiting results and what to do next.’
PCOS is a hormonal disorder that can cause enlarged ovaries and small cysts on the outer edges of the ovaries.

She finally pleaded with her followers to ‘be careful’ about what they say to others because weight gain and loss can also ‘be due to mental health’.
‘Plus remembering weight gain and loss can be due to mental health… so lets be careful what we say about other peoples appearances,’ she wrote.
Angie has spoken openly about her struggle with endometriosis in the past, telling TV Week last year that she was ‘relieved’ by the diagnosis.
She was first diagnosed with the condition, which is caused when tissue lining the inside of the uterus grows outside the uterus, in 2016.
