Former reality TV star Stephen Bear could be released from prison in a matter of days, according to reports. The convicted sex offer was given a 21 month jail term after he uploaded a sex tape he filmed with Georgia Harrison, without her consent, in exchange for cash online.
The Sun reports that Bear is believed to be released before his birthday on January 15. The 33-year-old is said to have vowed to stay clear from social media – and will reportedly turn his back on his former life including selling X-rated photos and videos on platforms such as OnlyFans, as reported by The Mirror.
He was found guilty of voyeurism and two counts of disclosing private, sexual photographs and films with Ms Harrison, a former Love Island star. He is said to have made at least £40,000 after sharing the clip, which was filmed using a CCTV camera.

A source told The Sun: “He’s been telling pals he’s not the same man that went into prison. There will be no hopping back on to social media or rolling straight back into the nearest nightclub when he gets out, he says he just wants to get back to east London and his family. Obviously time will tell if he has changed his ways.”
When Bear was sentenced in March 2023, he was ordered to sign the sex offenders register. He also had to pay Georgia the sum of £200,000 – the highest sum awarded in an image abuse case, as reported by The Mirror.
The Ministry of Justice stated that they do not confirm any individual’s release date.
