Gemma Collins has confessed her sex tape was "just one big fat lie" and never existed.
The 40-year-old reality star promised on Piers Morgan's Life Stories that she would delete the X-rated video she had made with an unnamed man, instead of trying to profit from it.
But Collins has told TV presenter Mel Giedroyc on comedy panel show Unforgivable: “So basically, I said in an interview once, thinking it was funny, that I’d done a sex tape like Kim K. Didn’t think any more of it.
“Next thing, I’m being interviewed by Piers Morgan on Life Stories and he leads me in it. I thought, 'S**t'. But now I’m in deep. I’ve got myself in hot water.

“There is no sex tape. It’s just one big fat lie.”
The former The Only Way Is Essex star appears on the on Dave comedy show in which celebrity guests reveal their deepest secrets on Tuesday, 23 February.
Collins – who was in an on-off relationship with TOWIE co-star James ‘Arg’ Argent between 2012 and 2020 – had told Piers Morgan that she had made a 20 minute sextape with a former partner and hoped to cash in on it one day.
She said: "I’d like to set up a pay-to-view line where they ring in, I take £1.50 on the phone call and then £3 or a fiver to watch the thing, so I’d be cashing in myself but I don’t know if that’s possible."
But when Morgan asked her if every part of her life was for sale she appeared to change her mind.
She said: "I’m not prepared to do it. I’d rather go and work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year before I’d have to resort to that.
"I’m gonna go home and delete it after you’ve given me the riot act about it."
