Celebs Go Dating: Stephen Bear causes chaos as he ditches date because of a chicken

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Celebrity Big Brother's Stephen Bear is reportedly proving to be a nightmare on Celebs Go Dating.

The former Ex On The Beach star has signed up for the next series of the E4 show which proved a hit with its first run last year.

But The Sun reports that his antics have been causing producers headaches, ditching one date over a CHICKEN.

“Bear walked out on his date last week during filming for Celebs Go Dating," a source spilled. “He ran off halfway through and claimed to the girl that he was going to the toilets, but in actual fact he was never coming back.

“He told the producers and runners to tell the poor girl that he had to go because he ‘had a chicken in the oven.’"

The insider added: "The production team weren’t best pleased as they had to let the girl down.”

A spokeswoman for Bear told the newspaper: “Bear has been taught by his mum Linda that dangerous hazards in the kitchen are everywhere, especially leaving the oven on too long.”

The new series of Celebs Go Dating will air in the Spring on E4.

Alongside Bear, other names signed up for the new run include Diversity’s Perri Kiely, Kim Kardashian's pal Jonathan Cheban and Pussycatt Doll Melody Thornton.

Also appearing will be series one star Joey Essex, who is single again after splitting up from Stephanie Pratt who he met while filming last year's show.
