TOWIE Stars Set The Record Straight About *Those* Stephen Bear Rumours

The Only Way Is Essex stars Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks have something to say about the CBB star joining the show...

For those of you who were secretly very excited at the thought of Stephen Bear joining the TOWIE cast, well, we’ve got some bad news.

Because The Only Way Is Essex stars Megan McKenna and Pete Wicks have shut down those rumours, pronto.

A few weeks ago, Celebrity Big Brother winner Bear got tongues wagging when he shared an article claiming he could be the new ‘King Of TOWIE’.

‘Get used to this mug. what’s everyone’s thoughts ?? X,’ he then wrote.

However, when TOWIE regulars Megan and Pete were grilled on their potential new co-star, they resolutely denied the rumour.

‘It’s not true’, Pete told OK!.

‘There’s just always rumours, come on’, added girlfriend Megan. ‘Essex is full of rumours.’


However, whilst Pete seemed adamant that the controversial CBB star wouldn’t be joining the TOWIE ranks, Bear and Megan (who had many fiery rows during their time on Ex On The Beach) actually seem to be pals these days, with Bear retweeting a quote from Megan earlier this week.

‘Don’t ever give up on your dreams.. ??’, she tweeted.

Megan also supported Bear whilst he was in the house, telling Reveal at the time: ‘He’s a decent guy, but he is a typical game player. He’s winding everyone up on purpose – he knows what he’s doing and he loves it.

‘Surely they can see he’s just a performer?’He’s certainly that.
