The Albert Square star was knowingly filmed having sex with Emilia Marcou, 40, of Great Yarmouth, in a hotel room but later asked her to destroy the footage.

They split after he learned she had another boyfriend. Ms Marcou then sent him and his new partner abusive messages.

And she and a friend later posted images on his Facebook page, which has thousands of followers.

A purple devil mobile phone emoji was put over Marcou's face to hide her identity but the actor was shown fully nude.

Prosecutor Edward Aydin told Hammersmith magistrates court in West London that he ended the relationship and then received abuse messages.

Mr Aydin said the actor had asked Ms Marcou to get rid of the sex film, adding: 'He was worried it would fall into the wrong hands.'

Ms Mckenna posted the images on Facebook under an alias.

Mr Aydin said: 'There were three picture messages of Ms Marcou and the victim having sex. Her face was covered by a purple devil emoji, his face and body were clearly on display.

'This was specifically to humiliate and degrade the victim.'

Judge Elizabeth Warner said the 'vindictive' nature of the crime made a custodial sentence likely when the pair are sentenced next week.

She added: 'I need to decide if this is immediate or suspended.'
