Christian has now spoken out about the scandal, telling The Mirror he simply made the claims to impress the guy, insisting no drugs were taken.

“On these chat sites there is a lot of timewasting and chat and silliness that never leads anywhere,” he states.

“My partner and I will do it on a bored evening and have conversations with no intention of meeting up. It is a bit embarrassing now thinking about it, but you quite often chat to random people.

“It is more an ego thing than anything else, could I get them or not.”

He continues: “There is always talk of drugs, in London it is such a problem. This chap brought it up. I spend my life advising people on drugs so of course I know all about it.

“I've been stupid but absolutely nothing happened. There was no meeting and no drugs were taken. That is the key point. It was just horny talk really.”

Christian - who admitted he has taken drugs in the past as a 19/20 year-old - has been contacted by his Channel 4 bosses and will meet with them later this week to discuss the reports.

“They want to know what this is all about so I am chatting it through,” he said.

He also took to Twitter to blast the man he met on the app for selling his story.

He tweeted: “Good grief it must be a desperately quiet news day…

“Offer people enough money and you will always get the story you want... #justsaying #youknowwhoyouare.”
