Ex On The Beach and Geordie Shore star, Vicky Pattison, has admitted that although she used to HATE Stephen Bear, he is now a changed man

Vicky Pattison has never had much luck when it comes to her romantic life; but when she met funny cockney lad, Stephen Bear, on Ex On The Beach this year, it looked like love at first sight.

The pair seemed to fall for one another immediately after Vicky, 27, made her dramatic entrance on the beach as an ex of Kirk Norcross; but Stephen had already hooked up with a number of girls on the show, which wasn’t easy for Vicky to adjust to.

His cheeky on-screen antics with co-stars, Ali Drew, Megan McKenna and Holly Rickwood have led to a lot of split rumours on social media, but Vicky has come clean and confessed her and Stephen are still very much loved-up!

Vicky said: ‘I’m not going to lie, I hated him for a little bit. No one wants to see or hear that, no matter how many times he tried to reason with me and tell me it was all in the past’

‘He’s good as gold. He’s never had a girlfriend before and the way he behaved on the show was as a single man. Now he’s really calmed down.’

But last week’s show was as explosive as always as Stephen heavily flirted with Ali Drew on a private massaging date.

Not only that, but Ali was then asked to choose a person to leave the Mexican villa – and much to everyone’s dismay – she picked Vicky!

Vicky took to Twitter calling Ali and Stephen ‘a pair of utter f***ing sly c***s’ and insisted that they had broken up after she witnessed his behaviour on the episode.

So although it wasn’t pleasant for her to watch Stephen get up all close and personal with Ali, Vicky says her boyfriend of six months is a changed man.

She continued to the Daily Star: ‘Everyone would like to think he’s a complete b*****d, or I don’t trust him, but that couldn’t be further from the truth.’

So is marriage on the cards for Vicky and Stephen? We reckon they make the perfect couple with their witty sense of humour and charming personalities, and let’s face it – they’d have the most beautiful kids!
