Stephen Bear needed therapy after Celebrity Big Brother

Stephen Bear has claimed he needed "three months of therapy" after he was grilled by Emma Willis in his 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner's interview last summer.

The former 'Ex on the Beach' star, 26, was crowned the champion of series 18 last year by the public, but the outcome didn't sit well with the show's host and she fired some tough questions at him during his exit and he has admitted the situation damaged him.

Taking to his Twitter account on Tuesday (04.01.17) as the new series aired, Stephen - who is also known as Bear - wrote: "I see @EmmaWillis is back . Let's hope she's kinder to the winner this year . Took me 3 months of rehab to get over it xx (sic)"

The new series saw seven former housemates - who have all appeared in the show before and made their mark on viewers - return to the infamous abode to shake things up for the seven newbies and Bear is appalled he wasn't called back for this year.

He said: "How I'm not in that house liberty ! X (sic)," followed by a crying laugh emoji.

And, although they've only been in the colourful bungalow hours, bosses have already caused trouble for the housemates as the All Stars - the previous contestants - were tasked with choosing who out of the New Stars should be "edited out" of the show.

They settled on Stacy Francis, banishing her out into the garden in a disgusting beige tracksuit top with "edited out" emblazoned on it as the others enjoyed the launch party.

And there will no doubt be fireworks before long as Austin Armacost admitted that Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt - known collectively as Speidi - were the "worst housemates" he could have in there with him because they're a "nightmare."

Other stars taking part in the current series include James Jordan, Calum Best, his mother Angie Best, Bianca Gascoigne, Coleen Nolan, Ray J and Nicola McLean.
