Are taped conversations from jail cells admissible in court?

I got arrested and held in a cell overnight. The police are saying they heard me on camera talkin with the other dude in the cell about the crime and that my words admitted guilt. Can anythin I said in the cell get used against me?

    Yes, but do not believe the cops until you get a copy of the conversation in discovery your cell mate can testify against you too they record all phone conversations also. Do not talk about the facts or your case with anyone but your attorney.
