Lauren Goodger angry over sex tape

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Lauren Goodger has spoken out about her sex tape shame

Lauren Goodger has said she is "angry and upset" after footage of her performing a sex act was leaked.

The former The Only Way Is Essex star also said she felt "betrayed and embarrassed" after the clip of her and her ex boyfriend Jake Mclean was spread around with her phone number attached.

Glamour model Lauren told The Sun: "My private life has been invaded in the most horrible way.

"I can even see how some girls would feel suicidal and not be able to cope in this situation."

Lauren, who took part in the eighth series of Dancing On Ice, said she had trusted Jake and was not even aware he had filmed the footage in the bedroom of the house they once shared together in Epping, Essex.

She advised other women and girls not to allow themselves to be filmed because of the risk of the footage being used in the future as "revenge porn", adding that she could not believe there is not a law against it.

"Anyone caught sending private, intimate stuff like this about should be arrested," she said.

"I would definitely advise girls and young fans not to send any pictures or anything because it can come back to bite you.

"When you do break up, these things can come out due to spite and jealousy."

Lauren, who is single after splitting up with Jake in December after two years together, added: "I'm worried now because if I do start dating someone else, I have got to explain this situation to them.

"How am I going to explain the video? It will be awful."

But the TOWIE star faced a backlash online, from internet users claiming she had only drawn further attention to herself by speaking out about the tape.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Libra:

Sorting out and organising your surroundings should be your first priority. As a general rule, you don't mind an untidy workspace. As far as you're concerned, messiness is a sign of genius. There comes a point when even the most talented person has to make order from chaos. It may take a few hours to sort through all the papers that have accumulated, but take heart. Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
