But all the while he was keeping a secret stash of photos and videos of children 'engaging in sexual activity' - and sharing them with others.
The teacher, then 27, and the Nine Network personality, 43, met over Skype instant messenger on April 30, 2015, court documents for Mc Cormack revealed.
'I'm 27, gay, single, love young bs (boys)', Reale said.

His Skype chat buddy, Reale, has pleaded guilty to one count of producing child exploitation material, nine counts of distributing child exploitation, and one count of using electronic communication with intent to procure a person under the age of 16 years for sexual activity.
As he walked towards the Downing Centre to plead guilty to two counts of publishing, transmitting or promoting child abuse material in September, Channel Ten cameras caught him saying: 'I'm starting to feel sick'.'Suck it in! Another man Mc Cormack spoke to - white collar West Australian professional Leon Mario Berger - has pleaded guilty to one count of possessing child pornography.
