Stephen Bear 'kicked off Celebs Go Dating after angering show bosses'


Stephen Bear has reportedly been given the boot from the E4 Celebs Go Dating line up 2017.

The former Ex On The Beach star and Celebrity Big Brother housemate had signed up to the new E4 series for cash.

"I've come onto the show for the money," the Daily Star quoted Bear as saying this week. "I've done it for the money. That's why I'm here. I'll be honest."

However a big pay day may not be coming for Bear, who has supposedly been cut from the show half way through filming.

"After his behaviour on the show and in the press, the crew had no option," a source said today. "There was a showdown with some cast and crew today and he was told he wasn't welcome back."

They added: "Some cast have been getting considerably angry with Bear and are apparently embarrassed to be associated with him."

It follows Bear telling Heat magazine his experience on the show so far was "terrible".

"Honestly? It's going s***. It's going terrible," Bear complained. "I've come onto the show for the money. That's why I'm here. I'll be honest.

"I've done it for the money... I say the truth, baby. They pay me good."

He went on to hit out at Celebs Go Dating's professional matchmaker Lady Nadia Essex, saying she gave him "crap advice".

Other stars on this year's show are TOWIE's Joey Essex, former Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter, American reality star Jonathan Cheban, Diversity's Perri Kiely, Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton and TOWIE's Ferne McCann.

Celebs Go Dating starts tonight, February 13 on E4 at 10PM and continues week-nights for four weeks.
