Producer and writer Fiona Looney has revealed how she made a sex tape with her husband Steve.

The creator of RTE's 'Celebrity Bainisteoir' and playwright revealed all about her saucy bedroom antics while speaking on TV3's Midday.

When asked by presenter Andrea Hayes if any of the panellists had made a sex tape, she lifted the lid on what she gets up to behind closed doors.

And speaking about Coronation Street actor Shayne Ward being hit with a sex tape scandal, the outspoken broadcaster hinted that she is not the only one who uses the camera to spice things up in a relationship.

"Yeah, I'm dead honest, I have and I'm sure most people have if they were very honest," she said.

But she said that there was no comparison between celebrity stars filming themselves with a one-night stand and recording a private moment in the bedroom while in a monogamous relationship.

"There is a big difference between being filmed or photographed in a steady, secure, trusting relationship in the privacy of your own home and doing what, unfortunately, Shayne Ward seems to have done.

"That's picking up somebody that he barely knows and consent to being filmed or filming himself.

"You are asking for trouble," she said.

Fiona has been happily married for 20 years to music exec Steve Lindsey and the couple have three children together.

"You have to trust the person that you are with and you have to trust them enough to project that, if this all goes really badly wrong, do I trust them enough not to do the revenge porn thing?" she said. "Because that is the really annoying thing."

"I have been filmed but I think most people have, but I'm not going to sit here and say, 'Oh my God'.

"Men tend to be into it more than women, but I don't mind."

The outspoken writer of hit stage play Dandelion insists that sex tapes are more prevalent in Irish homes than people let on.

"I refuse to sit here and go 'I'm the odd one out'.

"I bet you most people in this day in age have either been photographed or filmed. I would be surprised if they hadn't," she said.
