Georgia Harrison has broken her silence following the arrest of her ex-boyfriend Stephen Bear after she accused him of recording and sharing a video of them having sex without her consent.
The former Love Island star took to Instagram last month to speak out against her ex after claiming she’d been contacted by at least two people who had seen the footage, with some even saying it had been posted on X-rated website OnlyFans.
Bear denies all allegations but was arrested by police shortly after his flight home from Dubai landed at Heathrow airport on Friday afternoon (15 January). He has since been released on bail.
A spokesperson for Essex Police confirmed, “A 31-year-old man from Loughton, who was arrested on suspicion of disclosing private sexual images or film without consent with intent to cause distress, voyeurism, harassment and obstructing a police officer, has been released on bail until 10 February.”
Speaking after Bear’s arrest, Georgia said, “Thank you to everyone that has reached out over the last few days.
“At this time I am unable to comment on the recent events due to the ongoing criminal investigation. I am passionate about supporting victims of revenge porn and hopefully by coming forward it will give others the courage to do the same.”

Georgia and Bear briefly dated in 2019 before he claimed to have “rumped and dumped her” in an Instagram rant. Last month, she claimed he had “violated” her privacy by filming her in a compromising position and sharing the footage.
She told fans she had “no other choice but to go public with the situation” and explained, “So Bear has CCTV around his house, he purposely got me in a position where he knew it would be on CCTV quite a long time ago and after acted like he forgot the cameras were there.
“Firstly I had to give him the benefit of the doubt and hope he just would do the right thing, partly because I was ashamed and just wanted it to go away but tbh I have nothing to be ashamed about I was on private property with someone I had been with multiple times and trusted/was in love with.”
