Stephen Bear tells revenge porn trial filming sex with Love Islander was funny

Reality TV star Stephen Bear said that accidentally filming himself having sex with his ex Georgia Harrison was “funny” but it is “complete lies” that he sent the footage to someone on WhatsApp.

Bear, 32, said he started having sex with Love Island star Miss Harrison, 27, in his garden after she told him he looked like a “fit Paul Daniels” as he was doing card tricks with his top off, a court heard.

He is accused of sending the video, filmed on his garden CCTV camera, to someone on WhatsApp on the same day, August 2, and then uploading it to his OnlyFans account three months later.

He denies two counts of revenge porn and one count of voyeurism.

Around three weeks before he set up the OnlyFans page, the Ex On The Beach star was £12,000 in his overdraft, Chelmsford Crown Court heard.

The court heard that, up until its deactivation on December 8, Bear made just under £40,000 from his OnlyFans account – with around £2,000 relating to the alleged sex tape with Miss Harrison.

Giving evidence in court this afternoon, Bear told jurors that, when he realised he may have filmed the sex with Miss Harrison on his CCTV camera he “thought it was funny.”

He said: “You would think it's funny, you know what I mean. She laughed.

“We played it on the monitor screen. We watched it back on that and then she asked for a copy of it. Straight away of course I said I will send you a copy.

“Straight away she told me to delete the footage. Straight away no questions asked [I deleted it]. Why would I want that on my phone?

“We had sex in the sun bed shop and there is CCTV in the sunbed shop.

“My intention was to catch up with a friend – sex was a bonus. To be filmed is quite funny.”

Bear claimed no-one else had seen the footage except himself and Miss Harrison.

Asked by his defence barrister Gemma Rose if he had sent the footage with Miss Harrison to a friend on Whatsapp, Bear said: “That’s complete lies. No-one has ever seen the video apart from us two. And that’s it.”

Asked if he had uploaded it to his OnlyFans account, he said: “I don’t know of any video being uploaded.”

He admitted he got together with Love Island star Miss Harrison while filming MTV’s The Challenge in 2018 but had a girlfriend at the time – describing himself as a “serial dater” and “not really faithful”.

The trial continues.
