Stephen Bear heads to court as judge says he'll face trial

Stephen Bear has denied sharing private sexual images as he appeared in court today.

The reality TV star put on a show for photographers awaiting his arrival at court, where it was confirmed he’ll face trial next year.

Bear – wearing a light blue suit – flashed finger guns and played up to the camera as he headed inside.

The 31-year-old Ex On The Beach star is accused of secretly recording himself having sex with a woman and posting the footage online.

Bear denied two counts of disclosing private sexual photographs or films and one count of voyeurism when he appeared at Chelmsford Crown Court.

The alleged offences are said to have taken place in August and November 2020.



Judge Christopher Morgan conditionally bailed Bear until his trial on February 7, which is due to last two to three days.

Sharing a message on Twitter after the hearing, Bear revealed he was heading to Turkey later today.

He wrote: ‘For everyone asking what suit I wore today it was from prada ❤️ sunglasses from Dita ❤️ and watch Richard mille. Jetting off to turkey in a few hours 🏝🙏🏽 life’s a movie.’

Essex Police previously said Bear was arrested in January and charged in connection with an investigation into the disclosure of intimate photographs without consent.

He was arrested at Heathrow Airport on his return from Dubai, on suspicion of disclosing private sexual images or film without consent with intent to cause distress, voyeurism, harassment and obstructing a police officer.

In May he was charged with voyeurism, disclosing private, sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, and harassment without violence.

A statement from Essex Police at the time read: ‘A man has been charged in connection with an investigation into the disclosure of intimate photographs without consent.

‘He has now been charged with voyeurism, disclosing private, sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, and harassment without violence […]’

Bear had previously refuted the allegations, telling his followers: ‘So it’s actually sunk in what’s happened. I’ve got back and I didn’t realise the extent of what’s being spoken about right now.’
