The X Factor winner and Coronation Street star is “hugely embarrassed” by the explicit video, but he’s not the first famous victim of explicit leaks.
Singer-turned-soap star Shayne Ward is “hugely embarrassed” after a sex tape leaked online.
Footage of the star, who plays Aidan Connor on Coronation Street and won The X Factor back in 2005, shows him masturbating in the x-rated clip.
But a source insists the tape was old, and took place when Shayne , 32, was on tour with a production of War Of The Worlds in 2014.
“He’s so embarrassed this has happened. The conversation between him and the supposed woman have left him hugely red faced.”
“He can’t believe anyone would do this. He thought it was a private chat and a one-off and only realised he had been catfished after the video emerged today.”
Most stars would like to keep their intimate recordings under wraps, while others end up happy that it’s found the light of day.
They can either make or break the person in question – think Kim Kardashian and then Screech from Saved By The Bell.
But regardless of what they do for the celeb they usually cause quite the storm.
Whenever a new one hits the web everyone goes mad trying to keep up with the rumours: Is that really her? Is that really him? Who’s that in the background? Who released it and why? What’s that on her…? Oh, EUGH.
And so it goes on.
