Stephen Bear has denied he is returning to the Celebrity Big Brother house, saying he “wasn’t cool enough”.
The Ex On The Beach star won the reality TV show this summer and there had been rumours that he would be heading back into the house for the upcoming All Stars vs New Stars edition of the programme.
However, Stephen has now taken to Twitter to set the record straight.
I can officially say I'm not doing CBB in Jan . I wasn't cool enough 😂— Bear (@stephen_bear) December 18, 2016
The star, known as Bear, was at the centre of plenty of controversy during his stay in CBB, as a result of his mischievous behaviour, bullying claims and romance with fellow housemate Chloe Khan.
Other old faces rumoured to be returning to Celebrity Big Brother include Katie Price, James Jordan, Lauren Harries and Irish twins Jedward.
Newcomers linked to the programme include Bianca Gascoigne, The Only Way Is Essex star Danielle Armstrong and X Factor duo Bratavio.
Celebrity Big Brother returns in January.
