Ex On The Beach star Rogan O'Connor is a big fan of Vicky Pattison and Stephen Bear's romance, telling Reveal he thinks the pair make a "great couple".

Like Vicky, Rogan made his return to Ex On The Beach this time round and while staying in the villa, he got to know the Geordie Shore favourite and her beau pretty well.

The pair made a lasting impression on Rogan and a big fan of their romance, Rogan told us he thinks Vicky and Bear are great together.

"I love Bear," he gushed. "We have a giggle together. And Vicky too... I think they're a great couple."

His comments come after there's been much speculation that Vicky and Bear have split recently. After a recent episode of Ex On The Beach aired, Vicky hinted she and her co-star had broken up via Twitter.

After the show aired, Vicky said she hated Bear and called him a "tramp" in a tweet to Megan McKenna. Viewers watched him get very hands on with Ali Drew during a date, before making out to Vicky their date was purely platonic.

During the episode, Vicky called off her romance with the former Shipwrecked star and after watching it back last week, she hit out at Bear, insisting she can no longer trust him.

"He's trying to defend his actions and salvage our relationship, but I'm over it," she had said. "I can't trust him as far as I can throw him now."

Bear, meanwhile, has denied such split rumours throughout the speculation. Not only did he reveal he wants to marry Vicky, Bear joked the couple break up every Tuesday because of the programme, but are actually doing "great".

A little confused when it comes to the pair's relationship status, we asked Rogan whether he knew what was going on.

He told us: "I have no idea, but I don't ask. I stay out of it. They're both very temperamental and both hot headed – so if they have an argument, it can look like they are splitting up.

"But I think they love each other and they're very happy together, they just have their ups and downs like most couples."

While Vicky had seemed to suggest she was done with Bear and their relationship, the Judge Geordie star has now had a change of heart.

Suggesting her romance with Bear is now back on, Vicky admitted she didn't want things to end, so had to "get over" her boyfriend's behaviour on Ex On The Beach.

"I'm not going to lie, I hated [Bear] for a little bit," she told The Daily Star in a recent interview. "Seeing the show and finding out what happened was a massive shock and hurtful."

"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."

Hinting the pair have now worked through their romance woes, Vicky added: "He's a lovely lad and I think the world of him... I see myself being with Stephen for a really long time, if not forever."
