Shock for Stephen Bear as girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg visits CBB house
Stephen Bear has come face-to-face with his girlfriend from the outside world, Lillie Lexie Gregg, days after his Celebrity Big Brother love interest Chloe Khan was evicted.
Reality TV star Bear, who is known for appearing on MTV's Ex On The Beach, enjoyed a tactile romance with housemate Khan during their time together on the series.
Gregg entered the compound on Wednesday as a surprise visitor for part of a shopping task, leaving Bear stunned, the official Twitter account of the Channel 5 show said.
Khan became the third celebrity to be evicted from the house on Friday, putting an end to her union with Bear for the time being.
Gregg has spoken previously of her upset over her partner's televised fling, telling OK! Magazine that his actions were "disrespectful and hurtful and horrible to watch".
The two reality TV stars met while filming the forthcoming series of Ex On The Beach and have been an item since April.
They were still in a relationship when Bear entered the Celebrity Big Brother house just under three weeks ago.
Gregg's surprise arrival in the house will be aired in Thursday night's episode.
Wednesday's instalment will see the remaining 10 housemates taking part in a face-to-face nomination.
They were asked to do so by Big Brother following Heavy D's departure from the house during Tuesday evening's live eviction show.
