The couple have since moved home for fear of being attacked by vigilantes – but she is still standing by her husband.
It is feared he had been chatting to up to 15 girls online.
Details of the sting emerged at Manchester Crown Court as Allott pleaded guilty to attempting to engage in sexual communication with a child and attempting to cause a child to look at an image of sexual activity.
He was sentenced to a three-year community order.
He was caught in January 2018 after he began communicating over a nine-day period on an adult dating website with a bogus profile called Kara which had been set up to trap paedophiles.
Using the username ‘DaddyVincent36’ married Allott, who had no children of his own, falsely claimed he was single and ran a local bakery.
When the investigator said she was 13, Allott asked her about her breasts and sent pornographic pictures of a couple having sex.
In one message he said: ‘Have you found some friends on here – I have 15 girls aged from 11 to 14 in my WhatsApp group that chat with me.

‘Would you like me to be your daddy?’
In further messages he said he would ‘love’ Kara ‘like a daughter’ and asked about her pyjamas and whether she wore underwear in bed.
He also asked about her parents and whether she had started puberty, while also suggesting she get drunk ‘to have a good time.’
When asked why he sent the messages, Allott claimed he was ‘unaware’ he might be speaking to a 13-year old girl and denied having a WhatsApp group for youngsters.
He showed no emotion as his wife sobbed and urged the paedophile hunter group to stop filming.
One member of the group told Allott: ‘We didn’t want to have to put your wife through this.
‘We were actually unaware you even had a wife because you professed to be single. I just hope she now sees the truth of what you’ve been doing behind her back.’

As Mrs Allott wailed in the background, the group member added: ‘Do you see what you’re putting your wife through and what she’s having to hear.
‘My worry is you were talking to real children as well.
‘I’m lost for words that I’ve had to come here and break this to your wife.. The last thing she needs is consoling from you – she’s heartbroken and distraught.’
In court prosecutor Mr Saul Brody said: ‘The group used an adult decoy to engage with the defendant on a website, with the decoy pretending to be a 13-year-old girl called “Kara”.
During the early stages, the talking was polite and friendly but soon the defendant began asking questions of a sexual nature.
‘He then went on to send “Kara” an explicit photograph of a naked female and naked male.
‘He was arrested and admitted the person who was talking to ‘Kara’ was him.
He said he thought she was 16 or 17 and he went on to admit he sent the picture to her.’
In mitigation defence lawyer Clare Ashcroft said her client had anxiety and physical health issues.
She added: ‘This offending was borne out of a degree of boredom and some degree of fantasy.
‘He told the girls he was a baker and owned a bakery and but he says when one of the girls went to search for the address of the bakery on Google he said ‘don’t, I’ve made it up’.
‘He is remorseful. He has a wife and a long standing marriage. She unfortunately opened the door to the group when they came to confront him.
‘She has been suffering a lot because of that and she felt in fear in their own home. They had to move but she is supportive of him.’
Sentencing Allott, Judge Elizabeth Nicholls told him: ‘This vigilante group attended your home address and the person who had to deal with this was not you, but your wife. She felt terrified by this and has since been forced to move out of your house. There was no victim in this case, but there was potential grooming.’
Allott, who now lives in Withington, Manchester was also ordered to complete the Horizon Programme for convicted sex offenders and was ordered to abide by the terms of Sexual Harm Prevention Order and sign the Sex Offender Register for five years.
