The actor, who cannot be named for legal reasons, consented to being filmed having sex with Emilia Marcou but asked her to delete the footage when the pair split.

Marcou (40) did not delete the footage and she and her friend Sarah McKenna later posted explicit images from the video to the star’s Facebook page under a fake name.

In the pictures which show him fully nude, the Albert Square actor’s face could be clearly identified while Marcou’s was covered by an emoji.

Marcou reportedly met the actor through Instagram.

The relationship ended when it was revealed that Marcou had another boyfriend.

She sent him ‘several abusive messages’ when the relationship ended, the court heard.

She also messaged the actor’s new girlfriend, saying: “He’s a c*** when it comes to girls.”

The prosecutor for the actor said the actions Marcou took were “specifically to humiliate and degrade the victim”.

The two women have pleaded guilty to a “revenge porn” offence, which could see them immediately jailed.

The act of revenge porn was made illegal in England and Wales last year.
