Stephen Bear has claimed he has been charged with four offences, after his arrest in Heathrow Airport.
However, the police have denied anybody has been charged in connection with their investigation.
The 31-year-old was arrested on January 15 on suspicion of disclosing private sexual images or film without consent with intent to cause distress, voyeurism, harassment and obstructing a police officer.
After being released on bail, Bear uploaded a vlog to YouTube, calling it episode one of ‘Life of Bear’, and discussed the alleged charges against him.
Reading from his ‘rap sheet’ from the Essex Police, the Ex On The Beach star said: ‘I’ve actually got a criminal case over my head. I’ve been charged with some s***, man.
‘Right, I’ve been charged from the Essex Police with harassment, obstruct police officer, exposure and voyeurism. Harassment, doesn’t sound good, does it. Exposure… not sure what exposure kind of means. Obstructing a police officer… what do you reckon I did, do you reckon I got in his way, or?’
Bear then appeared to get confused with ‘voyage’ and ‘voyeurism’, saying: ‘Voyeurism. See, the thing is voyeurism, I think that means because I’ve gone to Dubai, and I’ve gone on a voyage, I’ve travelled, I’m getting nicked for travelling to Dubai, because I went on a voyage.’
Essex Police confirmed to Metro.co.uk that nobody has been charged in connection with their investigation, and repeated their prior statement: ‘A 31-year-old man from Loughton, who was arrested on suspicion of disclosing private sexual images or film without consent with intent to cause distress, voyeurism, harassment and obstructing a police officer, has been released on bail until 10 February.’
Bear added in the video: ‘I can’t really talk about the case, because it’s under investigation. I’m on bail until the 10th of February. Right now, they’ve got my passport.’
He said that being met by police officers after disembarking his flight back to the UK from Dubai was ‘quite embarrassing actually’, and said that the arrest had ‘ruined’ his reputation.
The Celebrity Big Brother winner said: ‘My name’s ruined. Type Stephen Bear into Google, f***ing hell. It doesn’t look good for the Bear, does it. But you know what they say, the only way is up.
‘All we can do is wait until the 10th of February when the police have done their investigation and after that, all will be revealed. In the mean time, life goes on.’
Late last year, Bear’s ex Georgia Harrison claimed that the reality star showed people a tape he had recorded without her knowledge, alleging that she had seen a screen recording of the footage and was left feeling ‘hurt and violated’.
Sharing her claims to Instagram, the Love Island star, who dated Bear briefly in 2018 after meeting him on MTV’s The Challenge and hooked up again the following year, wrote: ‘So bear has cctv around his house he purposely got me in a position where he knew it would be on cctv quite a long time ago and after acted like he forgot the camera were there. (As u do when u have cctv set up around private property going directly to your television and phone).
‘Firstly i had to give him the benefit of the doubt and hope he just would do the right thing, partly because I was ashamed and just wanted it to go away but tbh I have nothing to be ashamed about I was on private property with someone I had been with multiple times and trusted/was in love with. ‘However since being away I have met 2 more people he has shown and even seen a screen recording so I have no other choice but to go public about this situation not just for me but for anyone that has been round there no knowing they are being filmed.
‘I feel hurt, I feel violated, I feel embarrassed but I also feel like my friends and followers will support me through this and I can’t stay silent on the matter any longer.
‘Also anyone who watched it your (sic) disgusting yourself. Any respectful man, brother, son, father would tell him he’s disgusting for showing anyone that especially as u can clearly see its CCTV and I don’t know its recording.’
Bear took to his own Instagram story to refute the claims, telling his followers: ‘So it’s actually sunk in what’s happened. I’ve got back and I didn’t realise the extent of what’s being spoken about right now.
‘So the last time I was with this girl saying my name was two years back in Thailand, had a really good time. That was it. Anyone saying they’ve seen footage of me and her now that’s complete lies.
‘Please send me the video. I know for a fact when she’s actually seen the video it’s clearly not her, because like I say the time we were together was in Thailand. It’s not fair trying to embarrass her on here and now it has come onto me and f***ing hell man, it’s not on and it’s not nice at all, I’m being sincere when I say this.’
Bear’s OnlyFans account was withdrawn following Harrison’s claims.
Bear appeared on Shipwrecked in 2011 before going on to appear on two series of Ex On The Beach.
The Londoner won the 2016 series of Celebrity Big Brother, before going on to star on Celebs Go Dating and co-hosting Just Tattoo Of Us with then-girlfriend Charlotte Crosby. He has also appeared as a contestant on three series of MTV’s The Challenge, where he met Harrison.
