Angie Kent has been charged with drink driving, issuing an apology, according to a report by The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday.

‘I was pulled over on my way to a picnic in early October,’ she told The Daily Telegraph. 

Trouble with the law: Angie Kent has been charged with drink driving, issuing as apology, according to a report by The Daily Telegraph on Wednesday

‘I had two drinks on an empty stomach while getting ready. I was shocked but totally in the wrong and I take full responsibility. I am deeply regretful and sorry.’ 

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Angie’s representative for comment.

The former reality star was pulled over for a random breath test at around 4.45pm on Sunday, October 3 on the ramp to the Anzac Bridge in Pyrmont.

Angie resides in Queensland but is currently based in Sydney while filming for the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars. 

She was driving a Kia Cerato at the time of her arrest, and was taken to Day Street Police Station where she returned a breath test reading of 0.081. 

‘The driver of the Kia – a 31-year-old woman with a QLD driver’s licence – was breath tested at the scene and provided a positive reading,’ read a police report.

Angie was subsequently issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for mid-range drink driving and ‘her driving privileges in NSW were suspended’. 

She is scheduled to appear at Sydney’s Downing Centre Local Court on Wednesday, October 27. 

Angie first found fame on Gogglebox Australia in 2015, before going on to appear on several other reality shows, including I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, Dancing With the Stars and The Bachelorette in 2019.
