Stephen Bear & Girlfriend Cozying Up! Bye-Bye To Charlotte Crosby & Vicky Pattison
Stephen Bear has experienced several brief romances both inside and outside the screen. He is notable for creating a buzz for his dating fable with a model only a few months after his breakup with former girlfriends.
He made his name winning the British reality series, Celebrity Big Brother in 2016. But, his romantic stints and affairs might come as a shock to many.
Dating Reality Stars: Vicky Pattison, Charlotte Crosby
Stephen Bear, a.k.a. Stephen Tadger had been busy since appearing in reality shows Ex on the Beach and Celebrity Big Brother. The muscular hotty had bedded some of the biggest names in the UK reality circuit.
He started dating Loose Women panelist Vicky Pattison after meeting her in the reality series, EX on the Beach in 2015. Their romance got significant media buzz after they were publicly spotted cozying up several times.

However, their short romance collapsed just after four months of dating. Stephen revealed about their split on his Instagram by posting some meme pictures that signified Vicky cheated on him. He later insisted that Vickey blocked him on her social sites.
Post the breakup, Geordie Shore star Vicky loathed Stephen as the "most vile person she's ever met" when she talked to New! magazine in October 2015. She said,
"He's literally been the most vile, horrendous, snaky, conniving and manipulative person I have ever met. I'm truly shocked that I've allowed myself to get so taken in - but there you go. Love is blind, or in my case, blind, deaf, stupid. I have never let a man to mug us off as many times as he has. I feel I'm over it."
On the other hand, Bear later claimed that they broke up when Vicky got jealous of him kissing other girls on the show. He said,
"With me and Vick... she is a nice girl actually, but it just didn't work out. We watched Ex On The Beach, and where I'm kissing all the birds before her, she got the hump. So every week we'd break up, and after the tenth week, I said, 'You know what babe, you've got to stop shouting at me.' And we broke up. We don't really speak anymore. I wish she would unblock me, though, on WhatsApp, so we can maybe talk things out."
Later, Stephen witnessed yet another relationship with a Geordie Shore star, this time with Charlotte Crosby. He began dating his co-star from the MTV show, Just Tattoo Of Us, Charlotte Crosby in 2016. The pair verified their romance with a series of Snapchats on February 2017.
On Snapchat, Bear uploaded pictures of them together naked in bed. In the same month, Charlotte fuelled pregnancy rumors after uploading an Instagram video in which she was seen with a rounded belly under the outfit she wore.
They even met each other's parents in March 2017.
Unfortunately, Stephen broke his on-off relationship with Charlotte in August 2017 just days after her ex-boyfriend Gaz Beadle, a Geordie Shore and an Ex on the Beach star, said he was expecting his first child with girlfriend Emma McVey.
Earlier in April 2016, Charlotte had suffered an ectopic pregnancy, and it was Gaz's baby.
Breaks Up With Charlotte, Gets Heartbroken By Charlotte
Charlotte had broken into tears during an interview with Heat magazine after she heard her ex-boyfriend Gary "Gaz" Beadle was having a baby with his girlfriend.
Just a day after the Heat magazine interview, on 24 August 2017, Stephen tweeted stating that he got split with Charlotte.

Following their breakup and a brief patch-up, in October 2017, Charlotte made cheating allegations against Stephen stating he cheated on her at a Nightclub in Essex. However, Stephen's siblings took matters into their hands and denied the claims made by Charlotte.
In the same month, Charlotte broke up with Stephen on the grounds that he cheated on her. Again a month after the breakup, Stephen requested former girlfriend Charlotte to take him back via an Instagram post.

After their final break up, Stephen reportedly dated an 18-year-old Argos worker named Elizabeth Randall, but the reality star denied the dating rumors.
Before dating Geordie Shore star Charlotte, Stephen had been linked with numerous names from Ex on the Beach, including Lillie Lexie Gregg and Jemma Lucy.
In July 2017, he had removed a tattoo on his thumb dedicated to Jemma. Further, he had dated his co-star on the British Reality Tv series, Celebrity Big Brother, Chloe Khan in 2016.
Past New Girlfriend, Newer Girlfriend
In December 2017, Stephen encountered a beauty therapist from Oxford, Jessica Garthwaite while holidaying in Bali, Indonesia.
Stephen then filmed his new girlfriend and posted a video on Snapchat, in which his new girlfriend was seen grinding her derrière all over him during a night out in Bali.

Yet again, fans found him doing what he does best; he broke up with Jessica Garthwaite in January 2018 posting a cryptic tweet on his Twitter, writing girls should pass a test to date him.

His romance with Jessica was a short-lived one, but the Celebs Go Dating star didn't give up. He came back to the dating game in April 2018.
Since April 2018, he had been dating an Instagram Star/fashion entrepreneur, Ellie O'Donnell. The 29-year-old hunk Instagrammed a picture on 13 April 2018; revealing that she was his new girlfriend, but the relationship suffered from Bear's accustomed fate.

The icon couldn't stay committed to his girlfriend and started having an affair. Soon, his infidelity became known to his girlfriend that resulted in their seperation. But turns out that the actor didn't think his way through all these as he quickly started to regret his actions. So, he made the only move that was possible i.e. to win her heart back. He even shared quoting
"I’m in a better frame of mind now and I need to work on myself a little bit and hopefully, I can prove myself to her.I don’t want no one else. I want to have kids with her and no one else. I just need to prove myself."
However, once a trust is broken, it's always hard to gain it back and his girlfriend seemed to have made up her mind. Neither she wanted to give the relationship another shot, nor did she wanted to start a family with him.
So, realizing this, he started to make a move on another potential love interest, reality star Georgia Steel. Stephen tried desperately to get a date with her but all of his tactics failed as the actress had her eye on another man since she got engaged to reality star Callum Izzard in 2019.
Previously a roofer, Stephen became famous for the first time when he appeared on the famous reality show, Shipwrecked: The Island back in 2011. In the reality show, he was a popular figure among ladies because of his six-pack, no wonder he also made a large gay fanbase from his appearance on the show.
Stephen now owns a nightclub named EGO in Western Latvia, which regularly hosts fantastic parties. In 2018, he also worked in his first movie The Old Man, which he self-wrote, self-edited, and self-filmed with £1500 worth camera equipment.
