Reality TV star Stephen Bear put on a display in front of photographers as he was seen heading into court to face charges of sharing sexual images.

The Ex On The Beach and Just Tattoo Of Us star appeared in Colchester Magistrates’ Court on Friday, photographed in a light blue shirt and sunglasses as he appeared to ‘pray’ outside.

Looking up at the sky, Bear, 31, placed his hands together before appearing in the dock.

Bear is charged with voyeurism, two counts of disclosing private, sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, plus an allegation of harassment without violence.

The reality star, of Loughton in Essex, spoke to confirm his personal details as he stood in the dock.

The alleged offences are said to have taken place between August and December 2020, the charges state.

He was conditionally bailed to next appear at a trial preparation hearing at Chelmsford Crown Court on July 30.

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

In January Bear 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.

‘He is due to appear at Colchester Magistrates’ Court on 2 July.’

He 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.’
