9

Ex on the Beach’s Stephen Bear has appeared in court for allegedly posting home CCTV of him having sex with his ex Georgia Harrison on PornHub and OnlyFans.

The 31-year-old reality star went on Instagram to claim a woman tried to throw a tomato at him outside the magistrates’ court in Colchester, Essex.

Miss Harrison, 26, joined a war of words as she posted a selfie to her own Instagram stories with the caption ‘not everyone’s laughing’.  

Bear was arrested at Heathrow Airport in January after being accused of recording himself having sex with Miss Harrison without her knowledge.  

The Celebrity Big Brother winner took to Instagram following his court appearance to launch into a bizarre tale where he claimed a woman threw a tomato at him before being tackled to the ground by a police officer.

Ms Harrison responded with a photograph of herself on her own Instagram stories, with the caption: ‘Not everyone’s laughing.’ 

Earlier today he arrived at the court in his distinctive black Mercedes before posing for waiting photographers gathered outside.

Dressed in a pale lilac shirt and smart trousers the defendant placed his hands together in prayer before entering the building. 

Bear is accused of filming himself having sex with Harrison at his home on August 2 last year. He is then alleged to have shared the CCTV video on porn sites OnlyFans and Pornhub without her consent. 

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

On Instagram following his appearance Bear sat topless in his garden and said: ‘Ah man, that was wild.’

He claimed a woman ran towards him and threw a tomato while shouting ‘boo’. 

He added: ‘So you had all the paparazzi outside, loads of them. Crowds of people, police there. Out of nowhere I see a woman running towards me. 

‘She’s only thrown a tomato. I thought she was running for the bus. She’s thrown a tomato at me. She’s going “boo”.’

He added that he was planning on punching the woman before she was tackled by a police officer. ‘As she’s thrown it I’ve slipped it, she’s coming towards me I was going to give her a little twist, cheeky uppercut. 

‘Before I knew anything the policeman has rugby tackled her shes on the floor, managed to get into the court.’

Others outside the court claim this scene never happened.

Today his solicitor indicated that Bear intends to plead not guilty to all charges.

Justices adjourned proceedings to July 30 at Chelmsford Crown Court, Essex, where a plea and trial preparation hearing will take place.

Representatives for Miss Harrison say the reality star waives her right to anonymity. 

Wearing a sky blue shirt with an open collar, Bear spoke in court only to confirm his postcode and date of birth.

Bear was first arrested at Heathrow Airport on his 31st birthday in January after he returned from a holiday in Dubai and was later charged in May.

Bear won Celebrity Big Brother in 2016 and co-presented Just Tattoo Of Us with Charlotte Crosby on MTV in 2017.

Bear reportedly moved back in with his parents following his revenge porn arrest and death threat fears (pictured with his mum and dad in 2017)

He has also appeared on Channel 4’s Celebs Go Dating in 2017 and featured in an episode of BBC Three’s Eating with My Ex in 2019. 

Bear previously dismissed Harrison’s revenge porn claims as ‘silly rumours’ in a now-deleted video he posted online in which he accused her of ‘fake crying.’ The couple dated briefly in 2018 after meeting on MTV show The Challenge.  

The charge comes after Bear reportedly moved back in with his parents following his revenge porn arrest. 

In images obtained by The Sun, the reality TV star was seen outside of his mother and father’s home, where he is believed to be ‘keeping a low profile’ after fleeing his home over death threat fears.

On living with Stephen Snr, 69, and mum Linda, 66, a source told the publication: ‘He’s been keeping quite a low profile since he’s been back home.

‘It’s very different to the person you seen on his YouTube videos where he acts like he’s king of the hill. If it wasn’t for that stupid over-sized car of his, you’d not know he was about.

‘We’re all keeping our heads down during lockdown so there’s not a lot we can do and he’s no different.’ 

Stephen found fame on  Shipwrecked in 2011 then went on to appear in the MTV reality show Ex on the Beach in 2015, and then again in 2016.

The same year, he won the eighteenth series of Celebrity Big Brother.    

His ex Georgia first appeared on TV in TOWIE back in 2014 and then appeared on the 2017 series of Love Island.
