Stephen Bear to join The Only Way is Essex

Stephen Bear is set to join 'The Only Way is Essex'.

The 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner - who was born and raised in East London - has hinted that he's been approached by bosses of the reality TV show to join the next series.

Taking to his Instagram account on Thursday (01.09.16) night, the wind-up merchant uploaded a photograph of a magazine clipping in which they hailed him "the new king of "TOWIE'" after he was inundated with messages from fans demanding he joins his friends on the Essex-based show.

The 26-year-old hunk added fuel to the fire when he accompanied the clipping with the teasing caption: "Get used to this mug what's everyone's thoughts? (sic)"

Bear is no stranger to reality TV as just before he entered the famous 'CBB' house last month, he took part in two series of 'Ex on the Beach' in Portugal.

Meanwhile, he isn't the first person to leave the abode and land a gig on 'TOWIE' as Megan McKenna - who took part in 'Celebrity Big Brother' in January - was given a part in the cast just weeks after the 17th series concluded in February.

Since then, the 23-year-old beauty - who shot to fame on 'Ex on the Beach' - has become a major cast member after locking horns with her female co-stars and striking up a romance with the loveable Pete 'The Pirate' Wicks.

Meanwhile, although he's hinted he's been signed up for another television show, Bear has plenty of work lined up as he admitted earlier this week that he's penning his own film.

He said: "At the minute, I've come out the show and I've said, 'Right how much money have I got? Right, lovely! That's going into property.' I'm writing a film at the minute, I'm the writer and the producer of this film. Watch it come out, it'll be the best film you've ever seen in your life."
