What was sex tape scam Joel Dommett was involved in?
Joel was among a string of public figures to have had an intimate video of himself splashed across the net.
The footage, recorded during a Skype call, saw Joel engaged in a solo sex act in his own home.
UK Times revealed that a host of celebrities, including a Hollywood actor, have fallen victim to the scam, known as ‘catfishing’.
But in December 2016, when his fame rocketed on I’m A Celebrity, the video went viral, leaving him mortified.
The woman Joel believed he was interacting with was, in fact, a pre-recorded video.
He addressed the episode in a characteristically light hearted manner with a ‘letter from his penis’.
The statement, released on his Facebook page, explained: “Joel was Catfished a long time ago by somebody pretending to be someone else on the internet and was lured into Skype sex.
“That Skype sex session turned out to be entirely fake and has come back to bite Joel in the ass (Joel’s Ass is a good friend of mine and also features in the video).
“It’s a genuinely horrific thing for another human being to do, to take advantage of what is private of someone’s life and make it public for everyone to see.”
