Netflix answered our prayers earlier this month by dropping season five of Spanish thriller series, Elite, and it was everything we hoped for and more. Returning to exclusive private school Las Encinas, there was drama galore - including some v steamy sex scenes, obviously.

The clips in question of course sparked quite a reaction from viewers, and now actor André Lamoglia has responded to rumours that he used a prosthetic penis for filming.

To recap, season five saw André's character, new student Iván, forming a bond with fellow student Patrick (Manu Rios), with the pair then appearing in an intense sex scene together. At the time, rumours surfaced claiming that André had used a fake penis during the clips. However, now he's confirmed that the speculation is in fact "lies, lies, lies!"

As for what did go down during filming, André told Brazilian site Hugo Gloss, "I'll leave it to your imagination. Just kidding. I didn't do any scenes completely naked. We had protection, a sex cover. They call it a 'thong' or a 'sock'." Well, at least that's cleared that up.

Elsewhere in the interview, André opened up about being "worried" ahead of his debut sex scene for the show. However, he went on to explain, "The team is reduced onset. We have an intimacy coordinator, precisely for those scenes, to make us more comfortable, more prepared, to bring more truth to the scene."

The 24-year-old continued, "So it was a lot easier to film than I thought. I felt really comfortable when I had to do them. I also feel that, as an actor, I'm a little protected by the character because Iván is there, not André Lamoglia."
