CBB: Renee Graziano and Stephen Bear bonded in last night's episode of the show (2 August), but Bear made sure to highlight to Renee their friendship was purely platonic.

Bear appeared to rule out an in-house romance for himself on the show, telling Renee: "I'm not going to kiss anyone in here..."

Fans could argue that Bear has already kissed Marnie Simpson. He, Lewis Bloor and Marnie had acted out a reality sketch for the house's talent show task, where Bear briefly locked lips with a 'pregnant' Marnie before proposing to her.

However, the kiss wasn't in a romantic way and after Renee showed an interest in him, Bear made sure to set the record straight.

Renee had asked Bear to go to bed with her, but he refused. He said: "I'm not going to sleep. Im the last one to go to bed every night... You won't get it from me in here at all... there's no way I'm laying in bed with you or going to sleep with you the whole night."

Bear then insisted: "I'm not going to kiss anyone in here."

Renee replied: "Well, I expect if you were it would be me..." Bear said: "Yeah, let's leave it at that."

He then told Renee that he thinks highly of her and said: "You are up there in my eyes."

Despite only kissing Marnie as part of a task, Bear appeared to fall out of favour with fans for the smooch. He had also clashed with Lewis Bloor after telling him that, hypothetically, if he wanted to kiss Marnie, he could - regardless of her romance with Lewis.

Bear is currently dating Lillie Lexie Gregg and viewers took to Twitter, questioning Bear's loyalties to his girlfriend. Lillie, meanwhile, hasn't reacted to the kiss or Bear's comments.

She and Bear went public with their romance back in May, after meeting on Ex On The Beach's fifth series. The pair have seemed pretty smitten with each other, but Lillie recently revealed she and Bear are yet to become an official.

She claims, he did, however, tell her that he wants things to work out between them and he won't stray while in the CBB house.

Lillie said: "We had a chat before he went in. He wants to be with me, he wants to make it work and I was just very much like, 'Well, obviously it's a massive opportunity, go and enjoy yourself and if it's meant to be it'll be.'"
