‘Other inmates are laughing”
Stephen Bear is said to be doing a 60p-an-hour job inside prison amid reports that the disgraced reality star has been moved to a wing for vulnerable inmates.
The former Celebrity Big Brother winner was jailed for 21 months for sharing a video of him and Love Island star Georgia Harrison, 28, having sex in his back garden on Only Fans. The 33-year-old was said to have made £40,000 from the clip.
In December, the former Ex on the Beach contestant was convicted of voyeurism and two counts of disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress. As well as a custodial sentence, Bear was placed on the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years and given a five-year restraining order banning him from contacting Harrison.
According to The Sun, Bear is now being paid £3.60 a week for packaging tea and coffee for fellow inmates, and 60p-an-hour for wire-stripping.
Prison insiders told the outlet that Bear took the jobs to keep busy at HMP Chelmsford.
The reality TV personality, who turned up to his court case in a Rolls Royce, wearing a suit, smoking a cigar and carrying a cane, is now reportedly being mocked as the “tea boy” the source said.
A source told The Sun : “He’s gone from stupid stunts with a Rolls-Royce and fur coats outside court to making packs of teabags and coffee for three quid a week.
“He is trying to keep himself busy but the other inmates are laughing about him being the ‘tea boy’.”
Bear, who had not expected a jail term over his crime, gets £1.20 for a two-hour shift pulling wires out from their plastics.
Harrison has since spoken out about her ordeal in a documentary.
Speaking about it on her Instagram Stories, Georgia said: “Honestly, yeah not fully free but I have like done so much inner work since when it originally happened and actually when I was filming I remember saying to my producer ‘I almost feel like I’m being cold’ because I would do podcasts or I would talk about it to my producer and people would be in floods of tears but I wouldn’t be.
“Honestly, there was a time where I was worried that I might come across as like cold-hearted but when you look back, obviously they use all of the home footage of when I am actually going through the process of grief from the actual situation, and thank God I filmed that because honestly now I’m just in a place now where all I want to concentrate on is the future.”
