Lorna Fitzgerald's new boyfriend is a porn star.

The 'EastEnders' actress - who plays Abi Branning on the popular BBC show - is currently dating 25-year-old sports therapist Keo Reid, who has made more than 20 X-rated online videos under a fake name which show him without any clothes.

A source says Lorna, 18, is "really embarrassed" about the revelations, adding: "She's such a sweet girl and she'll hate her family and everyone else finding out about this.

"It'll come as a real shock to them. I feel so sorry for her."

The Sunday Mirror newspaper cites a friend of Keo, who said: "I've just spoken to him and he's not happy that people will find out. Keo just did these films as a bit of fun for good money. There's nothing on there that's illegal.

"Although it features men, it's not a gay thing. It's a fetish website rather than a gay website. Everything is consensual and above board.

"The theme of the movies aren't sexual and Keo is completely straight. It's not about men interacting in a sexual way. It's a punishment or humiliation website."

The source added: "You get paid different amounts for different things depending on what you do.

"If you can earn £300 or £350 for a few hours work, it's a lot better than moving bricks around a building site all week. It's good money."
