Stephen Bear heads to the police station with his father and brothers after revenge porn arrest

Stephen Bear was spotted heading to the police station in Essex on Wednesday following his arrest for alleged revenge porn claims earlier this month.

The Celebrity Big Brother star, 31, strolled out of the station with his father Stephen Snr and his brother Rupert, before briefly speaking to two officers outside.

Earlier this month Stephen was arrested at Heathrow Airport after being accused of recording himself having sex with ex Georgia Harrison without her knowledge and sharing the content online, but is yet to be charged.

Stephen strolled out of the police station after allegedly filming himself inside for his online YouTube series.

The reality star was supported by his family as they headed back to the car, and on the way stopped to chat to two officers and fist bump them.

Since returning from Dubai – and failing to adhere to COVID-19 quarantine rules – Stephen has been documenting his life in the wake of his arrest for his YouTube series Life Of Bear.

The star revealed earlier this week he’d been receiving death threats in the wake of his arrest, and in one YouTube video appeared to flee his home.

In the video, Stephen was discussing the damage that had been done to his door when someone had previously tried to break in, when he found the note on the front mat.

The message, which was made from letters cut out of newspapers and magazine, simply said: ‘Die you c**t.’

Essex police have since announced a formal charge is yet to be made while the investigation continues, with the TV personality remaining on bail until February 10.  

In a statement to MailOnline on Wednesday, a spokesperson confirmed: ‘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.’ 

Georgia believes Stephen showed the recording to at least ‘two friends’ and claims the footage was being widely shared on WhatsApp.  

She also alleges he shared screenshots of the video to followers on his OnlyFans account, but Bear has denied it was her in the video.

While Bear may well have chosen to be tested following his return, the TV personality appeared to show a complete disregard for current guidelines by venturing out to buy takeaway coffee shortly after his release. 

He was accompanied by on-off lover Tia McAlister, 18, who is 13-years his junior, as he left his Essex home for refreshments. 

He defended his actions in a video, saying: ‘I’m sure you are allowed to go out for an hour a day or to get some food.

‘What am I meant to do? Starve? If I stayed in and starved, people would call me thick and say why didn’t he go out and get some food.’ 

Guidelines state people can get food if there is no one else who can get it for them. 

While talking to his father, who was joining him in the car on the way to the police station, when he was looking for his face mask, Bear told him to hurry up and ‘f*** the mask.’

Elsewhere in a video, Stephen claimed he had lost his friends, discussed feeling suicidal and vowed to clear his name, after showing a clip of himself touching his manhood.

The reality star said on the 18 minute video, called Life Of Bear, episode 2: ‘Since things have been said about me, a lot of people have changed.

‘I had no one. The only people who stuck by me are my family and one of my other mates who is over in Spain

‘Apart from that, people who I thought were mates are clearly not. No one has really messaged asking if I’m OK. It’s quite a lonely road.

‘It’s funny because when I go out or I am round people, I always think, I am the nice guy, the funny guy, you wanna be round me. I buy everything.  

‘I treat them, I am nice to them. I always thought they would be like, “Ah Bear’s a nice guy. He’s cool. But I’m the one getting slagged off and it’s quite sad actually if you really think about it. 

‘When s*** hits the fan, there is no one really. apart my family.’

It's been tough: 'I had no one. The only people who stuck by me are my family and one of my other mates who is over in Spain,' he continued

In another video, which Bear said was his only way for him to have a voice, he showed off his Louis Vuitton jacket, poked fun at his father’s OCD and lack of sight and said he would be back on another holiday soon, despite the national lockdown.  

Bear moaned about having to travel to Harlow police station to sign a form while on bail each week until February 10,  saying: ‘It’s so long.’ 

He added: ‘Hopefully I’ll be in Dubai again soon. I can’t go nowhere yet though. Got my passport, ain’t they.

‘I was in there for 13-14 hours the other day, [police station]. Why have I got to sign a sheet for. Can’t you just wait til the 10th?’ 

Bear continued:  ‘When I do get proven innocent, because I will be, all those people who are saying horrible things about me, which nearly lead me to kill myself… 

‘I nearly attempted to take my own life because of every single person’s comment on the situation.’

Talking about the allegations made upon him, he said: ‘A lot of people are talking about revenge porn. It’s quite a strong allegation. 

‘It’s one of the worst things anyone could possibly say. I just want to get my side across because then I feel like I’ve got a voice again.’

Complaining: In another video Bear also moaned about having to travel to Harlow police station to sign a form while on bail each week until February 10, saying: 'It's so long'
