Stephen Bear ‘doubled his OnlyFans subscription fee’ as Georgia Harrison ‘hid in her room in shame’

Reality TV star Stephen Bear doubled the cost of his OnlyFans subscription after posting a sextape while his ex Georgia Harrison was “hiding in shame in her room,” a court has been told.

Bear, 32, from Loughton, Essex, is accused of secretly filming the sex with his ex-partner Harrison, 27, using security cameras in his garden and then uploading the footage to adult website OnlyFans.

The ex-on-the-strand star has denied voyeurism and two counts of disclosing private, sexual photos and films.

Bear appeared hilarious with now-girlfriend Jessica Smith as they arrived at court in a white Rolls Royce on day two of his revenge-porn trial.

Georgia Harrison, 27, who told a court yesterday her right to anonymity had been “taken away from me”, arrived at Chelmsford Crown Court this morning

He was seen kissing Instagram influencer and model Smith outside Chelmsford Crown Court on Wednesday morning.

Ms Harrison, a Love Island contestant, said Bear only told her about the camera an hour after the sex – after which she saw a short clip and asked him not to share it with anyone.

The former Celebrity Big Brother winner is accused of sharing the video on Whatsapp before uploading it to OnlyFans, where prosecutor Jacqueline Carey KC said 273 people paid £8.15 to watch it in November 2020.

Ms Carey said during the opening of Bear’s trial, the OnlyFans account was active from October to December 2020 and had 1,061 subscribers.

Ms Harrison, who waived her right to anonymity, testified at Cheltenham Crown Court on Wednesday: “After this happened I was in the worst state of my life.

“I can’t explain the shame I felt. I didn’t want to leave my room. Instead of apologizing, he increased his subscription price from £25 to £50.

“Whether he did it or not, which I think he did, that’s not a way to act. It’s bold and he knows what he did.’

Ms Harrison said she agreed to having sex with Bear in his garden but didn’t want him to share the video, telling him she would report him to the police if he did.

When asked by Gemma Rose, who defends herself whether she knows Bear uploaded the video herself and whether she saw it with her own eyes, she said: “I knew it was his, but I didn’t think that he would monetize it on a verified account. That’s so stupid of him and so nasty.

“It was in his account for a month. That’s the evidence. I saw screenshots. I saw the promotion where he gave me a 50% discount.’

Ms. Rose asked her, “You used the term ‘revenge porn’. Are you just saying that because of these allegations?’

Ms Harrison replied: “I use those words because I am 100% convinced that it is. I wanted to make it clear to Stephen Bear what would happen if he sent these videos.

“It upset me. It ruined my life. I thought he respected me. There was a time when I really loved him and he would show me around and say he respect me, he love me and at the time I thought he had a promising career in television and he wasn’t going to do what he did.

“But looking back, I was a complete idiot.”

Yesterday Bear, from Loughton, Essex, arrived at Chelmsford Crown Court in a chauffeured white Rolls Royce for the first day of his trial.

The Celebrity Big Brother winner posed for waiting photographers, gave a peace sign and walked hand-in-hand with Smith in matching pink outfits.

Former Love Island contestant Harrison told the court yesterday that her right to anonymity “realistically disappeared” after Bear uploaded a sextape to an adult website.

She waived her lifelong right to anonymity granted to sex crimes plaintiffs and told the court she was entitled to “some sort of compensation” for the sex tape, which has since been viewed by nearly 300 people and paid more than £8 each .

Harrison was asked by prosecutors why she waived her right to anonymity, to which she replied: “My right to anonymity realistically disappeared the moment it happened [the footage] surfaced.’

She added: “It was taken away from me, I didn’t have a chance anyway, so removing my name from articles was pointless. I was named publicly.’

Explaining that she was pursuing a civil suit against Bear, she said, “I’ve lost a lot in my career and in general.

“Really, I feel like I should get some kind of compensation for what Bear did.”

Under the Sexual Offenses Act 2003, complainants of almost all sexual offenses, including rape, sexual assault and voyeurism, are automatically granted anonymity for life.

Your identity cannot be made public unless you waive your legal right.

Earlier this year, the Justices Commission of England and Wales recommended extending automatic lifetime anonymity to all victims of intimate image abuse, including revenge porn.

The government is currently planning to change the law and grant anonymity to victims of revenge porn, deepfakes and other crimes where sexual images are shared online without their consent as part of the Online Safety Act.

The alleged acts are said to have occurred in August 2020 and November 2020.

He was arrested in January 2021 on his birthday at Heathrow Airport after a trip to Dubai and charged in May.

Ms Harrison, who has also appeared on The Only Way is Essex and Olivia Meets Mer Match, has waived her right to anonymity to MailOnline in relation to the case.

The process goes on.
