Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear is released by Essex Police following his arrest on revenge porn charges.

Reality TV star Stephen Bear has been released following his arrest on charges of recording and releasing a sex video without permission.

The 31-year-old was apprehended by police at Heathrow Airport on Friday after returning from holiday in Dubai and is said to have spent the night in the cells.

The allegations were made by his ex-girlfriend Georgia Harrison - a former contestant on Love Island - who claimed that he had secretly filmed them having sex on his house CCTV then had shared the video with friends.

Celebrity Big Brother winner Bear has consistently denied the claims, accusing her of "making up silly rumours" and using his name "for clout".

Confirming his arrest on Friday, Essex Police told The Sun: "A man has been arrested in connection with an investigation into the disclosure of sexual photographs without consent.

"The 31-year-old man from Loughton was arrested on Friday, January 15 on suspicion of disclosing private sexual photographs or films without consent with intent to cause distress, harassment, and obstructing a police officer."

Being found guilty of revenge porn offences carries a sentence of up to two years' imprisonment in the UK.
