It was reported earlier this month that a Skype recording allegedly showing the Olympic gymnast and ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ champion doing a racy strip-tease for an unknown model, before performing a sex act on himself, had been sold to a celebrity website.
Lauren has offered Louis her support, having become embroiled in a similar sex tape scandal herself this year, dishing out some advice for him in her latest magazine column.
Writing for New! magazine, the former ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ housemate says: “Apparently he’s really worried about how it’ll affect his TV career.
“I can totally sympathise with him but my advice would be to just laugh it off. If he worries about it, it will just give people ammunition.”
The Goodge goes on to claim that Louis has nothing to be ashamed of over his alleged leaked video, adding: “At the end of the day, it shouldn’t harm his career because we’re all normal adults who have sex.”
In July, it was revealed that a six second clip of Lauren performing a sex act on an ex-boyfriend had been shared across mobile devices in Essex, which she branded “mortifying” and “humiliating”.
While it was initially thought that her ex-boyfriend Jake McLean was responsible for the leak, since being evicted from the ‘CBB’ house Lauren has insisted that Jake's not to blame, telling The Mirror that it was someone “very jealous”, adding that it would “shock” people if they found out who it was.
