I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! contestant Joel Dommett has opened up about his leaked sex tape, admitting he feels "naive" to have been tricked into making it.

The footage of the comedian emerged shortly before he entered the Australian jungle for the ITV competition.

Spilling the beans to his campmates on Sunday's show, Dommett explained that he had been "catfished" by a woman he had been talking to online.

The group were discussing naked photographs when the former Skins actor confessed nude images of him were available on the internet.

"It's easy to find on the internet, I was catfished," he said.

He continued: "Basically someone messaged me online and after a while she said did you want Skype sex, so I was like 'yes'. I was so naive."

Dommett went on: "I messaged a few weeks later and she didn't reply and then a few years later the video was released online, it was released about a week before I came in here."

The 30-year-old said he was tricked into thinking he was interacting with a woman but later discovered that had not been the case.

He said: "I thought I was having Skype sex with someone but it was actually a video and it turned out it was someone watching me, watching porn, a porno gogglebox."

Fellow contestant Martin Roberts questioned whether it was "something to be proud of".

But Dommett replied: "No, such a terrible angle."

The latest instalment of the reality show also saw Roberts face his "worst fears" as he lay in a tree hollow filled with water and snakes.

The camp newcomer confessed he was terrified of confined spaces after the public chose him to take on the Hell Hollow Bushtucker Trial, but insisted he would try it as he did not want to let the other contestants down.

The first part of the task saw Roberts rooting around for stars - each representing a meal for the camp - in tree hollows guarded by jungle critters.

Things took a terrifying turn when he came to the second part of the task and had to lie in a hollow that was slowly filling up with water.

The property expert gamely tried to make light of his predicament, joking: "There's many a London flat that's smaller than this. Don't like the view. And it's got a bit of damp."

He looked less jolly when the snakes started slithering into the space, wriggling over his face and neck.

Afterwards, he was told that the trial had featured 52 snakes in total - the most ever used in a Bushtucker Trial.

"That was pretty hardcore," he gasped as presenters Ant and Dec told him that he won eight out of a possible 12 stars.

Back in the camp, Roberts was elated that he had got through the challenge.

He said: "I am delighted if I'm honest, because I've survived.

"I've conquered my worst fears, it was total mind over matter, focus focus focus."

:: I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! continues on ITV on Monday at 9pm.
