Former Towie star Lauren Goodger has been left 'mortified' and 'embarrassed' after footage of her performing a sex act was leaked online.

In the short clip, which has since gone viral, the reality star is seen giving her ex-boyfriend Jake McLean oral sex. It was filmed at the former couple's home in Epping, Essex.

The X-rated footage was also accompanied by her mobile number, which led to her receiving unwanted phone calls and explicit text messages from strangers.

Describing the 'revenge porn' as the ultimate betrayal, Goodger, who previously dated Mark Wright, said she felt violated.

"I'm glad it was with an ex because what we were doing wasn't wrong. It looks like it was taken in our bedroom in the house that we shared," she told New! magazine.

"I feel violated. I'm not Kim Kardashian or Paris Hilton who intentionally made sex tapes – I had no idea this happened."

Since the leak, the blonde beauty has been accused of orchestrating the leak in a desperate attempt to court publicity with one fan saying: "Oh, it actually exists then."

But she refuses to allow the backlash to bring her down.

"If anyone has anything to say, bring it on... have a little laugh. Kill me now, I gave my boyfriend a blow job. I'm not going to let it stress me out.

"I don't know why the hell anyone would want my video on their phone. I'd delete it."

Goodger is not the first star to fall victim to revenge porn.

In 2012, a video of former X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos performing oral sex on her ex-boyfriend MC Ultra was leaked online.
