Telly execs are fuming with the reality star for rekindling his romance
STEPHEN Bear has been kicked off of Celebs Go Dating for a SECOND time after reuniting with Charlotte Crosby.
Bear, 27, was sensationally dropped from the E4 reality show earlier this year after it was discovered he had begun dating Charlotte in secret.
When the couple split last month, telly bosses agreed to throw him a lifeline and offered Bear the chance to appear on the new series.
But the controversial star has now left them fuming once more, after he and Charlotte decided to give their relationship another go.
A source exclusively told The Sun Online: "Bear was all set to return to Celebs Go Dating, but his reunion with Charlotte has put a stop to that.
"He had assured bosses he was single again, but clearly that's changed now.
"Bosses are furious as they want to get the line up locked down.
"This is exactly what happened last time on the show – they had to kick him off after he started secretly dating Charlotte.
"It's put a stop to his return."
Bear and Charlotte split in October amid claims he had cheated on her.
The Just Tattoo of Us hosts had already briefly split in August, but last month it appeared it was over for good.
Charlotte deleted all traces of Bear from her social media accounts and tweeted: "Erase it all. Like it didn't exist. And start again."
But while the couple's bitter break up threw the third series of MTV's Just Tattoo Of Us into jeopardy, as it meant the feuding pair could no longer work together, E4 seized the opportunity to sign Bear up.
Despite the previous fiasco, bosses offered him the chance to appear on the forthcoming new series.
Stephen Bear is FINALLY given his marching orders from the Celebs Go Dating agents
Just last week, a source told us: “Bear is really looking forward to joining the show once again, and has vowed to take it seriously this time.
“He’s excited to meet some nice girls and hopefully find love.”
Bear's rep did not respond when contacted. A spokesman for Celebs Go Dating, meanwhile, declined to comment.
