Bear, who won the show in 2016, took to his Instagram page to confirm the tragic news. Sharing an adorable montage video of the cute little puppy, Bear wrote, 'In life nothing really upsets me . But to find my wolverine this morning dead in his blanket has left me broken . I will be off social media for a few days . R.I.P my boy . I love you 😢🐾' . [sic]

Fans of the reality star were quick to comment on the sad post, with many sending their love towards Bear.

One user wrote, 'Omg so sorry to hear this. 😇💖', with another adding, 'Awwww no poor little pooch. Rip little wolverine xxx'. [sic]

The sad news comes after Bear showed off his new tattoo in tribute to Wolverine just last week. Getting the word 'Wolverine' inked onto his neck, Bear shared the photo with his fans and wrote, 'New INK 🐾'. [sic]

The former Ex On The Beach star first introduced Wolverine to the world at the beginning of April. Explaining the reason why he chose that particular puppy, Bear filmed himself for an Instagram video.

He said, "Everyone meet my new son, his name is Wolverine. Say hello."

Bear first shot to fame when he appeared on Channel 4 show Shipwrecked back in 2011. The 28-year-old then went on to star in MTV's Ex On The Beach in both 2015 and 2016, before he entered the Celebrity Big Brother house later in 2016.

Despite causing a lot of drama with his fellow housemates, Bear managed to win over the public vote and won the show ahead of Frankie Grande, Marnie Simpson and Sam Fox.
