Turns out Charlotte Crosby has something to do with it!
After weeks (potentially even months) of being left in the dark, it looks like we might finally have the answer we so longed to hear.
The pair have been the subject to much relationship speculation whilst co-presenting their upcoming show Just Tattoo Of Us- oh, and, ya’know… they’re kinda allllwaaays in each others Snapchats.
And, whilst we all kinda knew already, they pair have (sort of) officially confirmed their relationship status via a Facebook video message on the MTV page.
After Charlotte cheekily told the camera, ‘Me and Stephen cannot confirm or deny that we are an item, all that is left to be said is…’, Bear interrupted to quip ‘Charlotte makes a mean cup of tea in the morning. Whey!’.
We think it speaks volumes, right?!
And it would appear we have further confirmation of Charlotte and Bear being an official couple- as Bear has been FIRED from his upcoming Celebs Go Dating gig, on account of not being single!
Earlier this week, it was rumoured in the press that Bear had been given his marching orders from the E4 show following a ‘showdown’ with some fellow cast-mates.
Now, whilst we were nothing short of absolutely gutted that our fave troublemaker wouldn’t be tearing up our screens once more, it all sounded very plausible.
Because, ya’know, CBB was a bit of a ride and all that…
However, it would seem there is more than meets the eye with this one, as the TV show’s dating agent, Eden Blackman, had revealed to the Mirror Celeb the real reason Bear got the chop…
Eden reveals, ‘After a longer discussion with Stephen, Nadia [Essex, the show’s dating expert] and I have agreed that we can no longer support him in his search for love’.
Eden then expanded, ‘It has been clear over the past week that despite some promising and fun early dates, his attentions are now elsewhere so it’s time to call it a day’.
So, we guess this means weddings and babies and all that jazz… right folks?!
