Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear in court today charged with revenge porn and voyeurism

STEPHEN Bear is due to appear in court today charged with posting revenge porn of an ex-girlfriend.

The reality star was arrested by police at Heathrow Airport after arriving back in the UK from Dubai on his 31st birthday.

Bear was charged with voyeurism, disclosing private, sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, and harassment without violence in May.

The Ex on the Beach star is due to appear at Colchester Magistrates' Court today.

Essex Police said at the time: "A man has been charged in connection with an investigation into the disclosure of intimate photographs without consent.

"Stephen Bear, 31, of Loughton was arrested in January.

"He has now been charged with voyeurism, disclosing private, sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, and harassment without violence."

Bear was brought in for questioning after being accused of disclosing private sexual images earlier this year.

He spent a night in the cells before being released on bail.

The star has previously denied claims of filming and sharing revenge porn, dismissing them as “so silly”.

An ex-girlfriend claims he released a sex tape of her online.

The alleged tape had even been shared on WhatsApp, she alleged.

Since his arrest on January 15, Bear has been accused of breaking lockdown rules.

He was pictured shopping at Marks & Spencer the day after arriving back in the UK – despite government rules at the time stating those returning from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) must isolate for ten days.

After grabbing a takeaway coffee in then got into his black Mercedes with 18-year-old beautician Tia McAlister.

Two weeks later he was forced to flee his home after a note saying "die you c***" was shoved through his door.

Fans also accused him of breaking lockdown rules again when he hung out with his nieces and got them to mime "f***" in a TikTok video.

In February, The Sun revealed he had moved back in with his mum and dad following his arrest.

Bear, from Walthamstow, East London, worked as a roofer before making it as a reality TV star.

He first appeared on Shipwrecked: The Island back in 2011 before fading away for a few years.

Bear then re-emerged on Ex on the Beach in 2015.

Since then, he's been on Celebrity Big Brother, Just Tattoo of Us and Celebrity Ghost Hunt Live.
