An explicit video made by 'Tumble' judge Louis Smith has reportedly been sold to a celebrity sex-tape company three years after it was made via Skype
An explicit video by Louis Smith has reportedly been sold to a celebrity sex-tape company.
The 'Tumble' judge is said to have appeared in the racy clip - made on Skype - three years ago and it is "terrible timing" for the star, who is keen to forge a TV career for himself.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "It's terrible timing for Louis. He's desperate for a TV career but 'Tumble' is aimed at a family audience."
The 25-year-old gymnast - who won a silver medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games - reportedly appears in the video to do a routine before stripping, talking about sex and performing a solo act.
It is said the raunchy clip was made with a model, who has now sold it to the Celebrity Busted web firm, with sources claiming it could "damage" his reputation.
An insider added: "It's unfair this could damage him all these years on."
Louis recently admitted he hoped 'Tumble' would show gymnasts and other athletes in a more positive light, insisting they "can have a laugh".
He said: "It's frustrating when you've got a different side to you and people always see you doing the same interviews and being asked the same questions, 'How do you feel about the Olympics?' How's training going?'
"You feel like you've been moulded into this respectable kind of person. This is an opportunity to show the other side of sportsmen. We can have a laugh and enjoy ourselves too."
