Stephen Bear is a ‘broken man’, has been ‘crying for days’ and is on suicide watch because he never imagined he would be jailed a week ago, it was claimed today.

Bear, 33, who won Celebrity Big Brother in 2016, was sentenced to 21 months for sharing a private sex video of Georgia Harrison on his OnlyFans website. 

The reality TV star’s girlfriend-fiancée Jessica Smith is standing by him, and revealed that she has sent cards, emails, voicemails and has booked a visit to HMP Chelmsford to keep his morale up.

But a source close to Bear has said he was ‘completely unprepared’ for being behind bars, believing he would have been spared a prison sentence if convicted. It is claimed he is now on a plan for prisoners who are at risk of self-harm or suicide, which includes regular cell checks and a buddy system.

The insider told The Sun: ‘He is at his lowest ebb and has been crying for days. He never expected he would be jailed and is completely unprepared.

‘Whatever anyone thinks about him, right now he is a broken man and feels awful for putting his family through this.

‘His family members are very concerned for his wellbeing. It’s hard for them to see him suffer like this alone.

‘It’s been a very difficult situation for Stephen’s loved ones. There is a lot of hatred being aimed towards Stephen and those close to him but they will continue to support him as he finishes his sentence’.

MailOnline has asked the Ministry of Justice to comment. 

Bear is in prison after he shared a sex tape – which had been captured on CCTV on August 2, 2020, in his garden without Ms Harrison’s knowledge – on adult website OnlyFans and made £2,000 from it. 

Despite his conviction and sentencing, Ms Smith has vowed to remain at Bear’s side ‘through thick and thin’ as she claimed he did not receive a ‘fair trial’.

She posted a video on TikTok this week saying: ‘When he gets taken to HMP and you haven’t even spoken to him yet cos he was taken on a Friday but you’ve sent him two Moonpig cards, five emails, left countless voicemails and booked a visit to see him.’

She is singing along to the song Crazy Girls and captioned the video with ‘I swear I’m gonna look like a fruit cake when he receives it all. Can’t wait to see him tho’. 

She received backlash for the video on social media, from some asking how she was not embarrassed, to others accusing her of lying. 

She hit back on her Instagram stories and explained that there is an app for sending voicemails to prisoners after she was told it wasn’t possible and that she was lying.

She added that she booked a visit to see him and had an email confirmation to prove it.

She asked: ‘Why would I lie about something like that? It infuriates me. I’m already stressed enough as it is. 

‘I got everyone and their f***ing dog slagging me off and it’s like urgh, leave me alone. It’s a bit annoying. 

‘Have you not all got your own lives to worry about mine?’

Ms Smith, who turned 24 two weeks ago according to her Instagram account, has her own OnlyFans where she posts explicit content.

She also appeared on Bear’s own account – which will presumably now be on pause.

Bear proposed to her after he had been found guilty of revenge porn, during a whirlwind trip to Paris. 

Ms Harrison, who has appeared on The Only Way Is Essex and Love Island, has waived her right to anonymity and insisted she stands in solidarity with other victims of revenge porn.

Conservative former minister Vicky Ford raised the case as she delivered a speech to the House of Commons during the International Women’s Day debate yesterday.

The Chelmsford MP said: ‘The next is the abhorrent Stephen Bear, a violent, abusive, misogynistic man who has just been sent to jail for revenge pornography and long may he stay there.’

A shout of ‘hear, hear’ was heard from Labour MP Alex Davies-Jones (Pontypridd).

Ms Ford added: ‘So much praise must go to the brave Georgia Harrison who was determined to see him stand trial for what he has done.’
