Vicky Pattison has suggested she and Stephen Bear are making a go of their romance, despite hitting the rocks recently.

Since speculation first surfaced that the Ex On The Beach stars have split, we've been totally confused.

Geordie favourite Vicky hinted she and Bear broke up, before he then insisted the pair are still an item and "doing great". And while we all began to think their recent drama was just a blip, Vicky then revealed she was "done" with her and Bear's romance. Still with us?

Now, Vicky has said she has had to get over the couple's romance woes of late because she wants to be with Bear. Can we finally take this as they're back on?

In a new interview with The Daily Star, the 27-year-old opened up about her relationship, after it has been hitting the headlines recently.

Fans of Ex On The Beach had watched Vicky call off her romance with Bear, after he confessed he had got too hands on with their co-star Ali Drew during a date. Vicks had been made to think the date was purely platonic and after watching the episode back, she finally got to see what really went on.

"Seeing the show and finding out what happened was a massive shock," she said. "And still hurtful."

"I'm not going to lie, I hated [Bear] for a little bit.," she continued. "No one wants to see or hear that, no matter how many times he tried to reason with me and tell me it was all in the past."

Following the episode, Vicky vented her upset at Bear, labelling him a "tramp" and telling her co-star Megan McKenna she hated him in a tweet. She also tweeted Cami Li, telling her their new friendship was the best thing to come out of being on the show, not her boyfriend.

Now, though, it seems Vicks has had a change of heart and is willing to give her romance with Bear another go.

"It was super-tough," she explained. "But it all boils down to if you can look past it, if you want to make it work. We wanted to be with each other, so I had to get over it."

She added: "I never get into a relationship thinking it's temporary. I'm dead passionate and think with my heart not my head, and throw myself into things. I'm a classic textbook romantic, I'm in love with love and I see myself being with Stephen for a really long time, if not forever. He's a lovely lad and I think the world of him."

Vicky's latest comments come after she hit out at Bear, insisting she couldn't now trust him.

"He's trying to defend his actions and salvage our relationship, but I'm over it," she said. "I'm really angry, but I'm not heartbroken, I'm more heartless... I don't trust him as far as I can throw him now."

With Vicky insisting she was done with the former Shipwrecked star, TOWIE's Fran Parman seemed to confirm the couple's break up over Twitter. When Vicky complimented Fran's beau Diags, she replied: "We need to find you a man like James now love you."

Bear, meanwhile, has denied he and Vicky have split throughout the speculation.

The reality star joked he and Vicky break up every Tuesday because of Ex On The Beach, before adding they were "great". He even went on to reveal his plans to marry Vicky, claiming he wants the pair to wed and have children together.

"In six months of being with her I haven't even looked at anyone else – I'm the best boyfriend I can be," he added. "Me and Vicky are great."

He added: "I want to marry her... she is the one to settle me down."
