She made us laugh on Gogglebox, kept it real on I’m A Celeb, found love on The Bachelorette and now, Angie Kent will be shimmying and shaking back onto our screens for the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.

For those of you keeping track, that’s her fourth reality TV appearance and viewers are quite frankly fed up of seeing the 29-year-old on their screens, with many taking to social media to voice their frustrations.

Shortly after the official cast announcement dropped on Tuesday, Angie shared the news on her personal account, posting a photo of herself all dolled up with dance partner Julian Caillon on Instagram.

“Have you ever seen Bambi on ice the sequel? Well you’re about to,” the former Bachelorette wrote.

“Nervous as all hell! But I can not wait to throw these awkward limbs around that d-floor! @julian_caillon you got your work cut out for you! Let’s do this,” she added.

Angie will be cha-cha-ing alongside her fellow contestants on the dance floor from February 9, joining former NRL champ Beau Ryan, comedian Celia Pacquola and Olivia Newton-John’s daughter and actress Chloe Lattanzi on the show.

But social media was soon flooded with comments from fans remarking on how many reality TV projects Angie has taken part in, during such a short space of time.

“How many more reality tv shows r there for Angie to appear on, turning into Eddie everywhere McGuire,” one person commented on Angie’s Instagram post.

“What’s next Big Brother, Married At First Sight, Farmer Wants A Wife?” asked another.

Twitter users also took to their devices with one person musing,” Are there any reality tv shows Angie Kent won’t do?”

Another asked, “How many Channel 10 reality shows can Angie Kent be on?”

But it wasn’t all bad news, with many of Angie’s friends and fans cheering her on and congratulating her for her new gig.

Gogglebox couch companion and best mate Yvie Jones commented, “Cannot wait!!!! You will smash this like you do everything!!! So proud xx”

Meanwhile, Dancing With The Stars host Grant Denyer wrote: “Bambi on ice 😂 I did see you during the promo shoot and I can safely say … your ‘journey’ is going to be bigger than the Bachelorette.”

Angie faced even more backlash when she was accused of using the bushfire crisis in a sponsored Instagram post to promote Bondi Sands products for financial gain.

“We have been praying for the rain. Our country needs it. So many amazing people, companies, business etc. have donated their time and money to supporting people in need across the nation. One of my favourites @bondisands have donated $100k to the @salvosau and @wireswildliferescue and have released products with proceeds going to the cause,” she wrote in her caption.

“As much as we want the rain we’ve got to be thankful for our glorious sun too! It is so important to get your 15 minutes a day for your mental health and wellbeing. Get to your local @pricelineau and get your hands on the SPF 50 Face, it’s a moisturiser & sunscreen in one. It’s fragrance free & vegan friendly. You can even wear under your makeup. So now I can enjoy some rays without wigging out, knowing my skin is heavily protected AND that the company I am buying from is supporting our nation!”

One follower commented on Angie’s post: “You’re promoting sunscreen??!! Gees girl! Talk about being paid for the Instagram post….shame on you, shame shame shame #heartless.”

Another penned, “I’m not about the original comment ‘shame’ bullshit. I hate that. But like, injecting yourself and your business allies/financial partners into the devastation is icky at best.”

Angie didn’t stay silent though and replied to the latter comment, “No worries. I can only do what I can and will continue to do so. How about we focus on the amazing charity I’m helping run on the Sunshine Coast in my spare time to raise money for the fires? Now that’s something to talk about. The more money raised the better! Let’s spread love x”
