Stephen Bear kicked off Celebs Go Dating after Celebrity Big Brother ban

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Stephen Bear has apparently been given the boot from the Celebs Go Dating line up.

It follows him being 'banned' from Celebrity Big Brother's All Star series this January by bosses of the E4 series.

"So @CelebsGoDating stop me from entering @bbuk in Jan and now they've banned me from going to the launch party on Monday . Never mind 🐾" Bear tweeted today.

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

"After his behaviour on the show and in the press, the crew had no option," a source told the Daily Star newspaper. "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 followed Bear telling Heat magazine his experience on the show had been "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".

Meanwhile, Nadia's fellow Celebs Go Dating agent Eden Blackman told The Sun: “After a longer discussion with Stephen, Nadia and I have agreed that we can no longer support him in his search for love.

“It has been clear over the past week that despite some promising and fun early dates, his attentions are now elsewhere so it’s time to call it a day.


“We wish him well.”

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 on February 13 on E4.
