Celebrity Big Brother winner and Just Tattoo of Us host Stephen Bear has been arrested following allegations of posting revenge porn.

As pictured in the Mail Online, the reality TV personality was taken into custody by police upon touching down in London's Heathrow airport from Dubai.

Love Island's Georgia Harrison alleged back in December that Bear had secretly filmed the pair having sex via CCTV in his home, and had been sharing screenshots of the footage and the footage itself with friends via WhatsApp and on his OnlyFans, a platform where people commonly pay for access to explicit content.

Stephen Bear has denied all of the allegations made against him, stating in a now-deleted Instagram video that the woman in the videos was someone else.

Essex Police confirmed that they made an arrest, stating that: "A man has been arrested in connection with an investigation into the disclosure of sexual photographs without consent.

"The 31-year-old man from Loughton was arrested on Friday 15 January on suspicion of disclosing private sexual photographs or films without consent with intent to cause distress, harassment, and obstructing a police officer", while they were also photographed removing items from his house yesterday (January 15).
