Two women who posted explicit footage of an Eastenders actor online after he broke up with one of them are facing a jail term for their actions.

Emilia Marcou, 40, filmed herself having sex with the victim in a hotel room. Marcou then shared explicit still images from the video with Sarah McKenna, 40, who then posted them on Facebook under an alias.

The images showed Marcou's head covered by an emoji while the actor was clearly identifiable and shown fully nude.

The actor, who cannot be named, has appeared in a number of British films as well as the BBC soap and the court heard he had asked Marcou to delete the video after they spilt, for fear it would fall into the wrong hands.

The two women have pleaded guilty to the 'revenge porn' charge and now face a possible prison term for the offence when they are sentenced next week.
