Stephen Bear "walked out" halfway through a date during filming for 'Celebs Go Dating', leaving the production team to let the girl down
Stephen Bear "walked out" halfway through a date during filming for 'Celebs Go Dating'.
The 26-year-old television personality was due to appear on the celebrity dating show but skipped out during filming after he told the girl he was on a date with he needed the toilet and never returned.
Insiders claim the production team were not pleased to be left to pick up the pieces, after the 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner insisted they tell the girl he "had a chicken in the oven."
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Bear walked out on his date last week during filming for 'Celebs Go Dating'.
"He ran off halfway through and claimed to the girl that he was going to the toilets, but in actual fact he was never coming back.
"He told the producers and runners to tell the poor girl that he had to go because he 'had a chicken in the oven.'
"It was ridiculous but that sort of behaviour is to be expected from Bear. The production team weren't best pleased as they had to let the girl down."
Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for the 'Ex on the Beach' star said he was simply being cautious about dangers in the kitchen.
She told the publication: "Bear has been taught by his mum Linda that dangerous hazards in the kitchen are everywhere, especially leaving the oven on too long."
And despite his appearance on the dating show, Stephen was recently linked to 'Geordie Shore' babe Charlotte Crosby, after they were spotted looking "cosy" as they cuddled up to each other for selfies at a nightclub before leaving the VIP area together.
A source said: "Charlotte was keen to take a back seat while Bear was meeting and greeting fans as if she didn't want to be spotted by too many people.
"When he'd finished his work commitments they kept themselves to the VIP area and seemed very cosy. They left together and seemed more than just friends."
