Stephen Bear's brother Danny has been defending the controversial Celebrity Big Brother star, saying: "There's no malice in him; he's a lovely kid."

Ex On The Beach star Bear has been a VERY divisive character in this summer's house, winding some housemates up the wrong way and sparking PLENTY of comment among viewers.

Bear's antics have included ruining the whole house coffee supply, deliberating sabotaging the balloon task and hooking up with Chloe Khan, when he entered the house dating fellow EOTB star Lillie Gregg.

He was also given a formal warning and separated from the house for a night after throwing a mug against a mirror, smashing it, following a row.

Bear's brother says he's a good person.

But his brother Danny told Rylan on Bit On The Side that Bear is a good person and only wants to entertain the audience.

"He's a lot quieter at home, I can tell you that much," said Danny via phone, "but in reality he's a lovely kid. There's no malice in him. He has two little pussycats, a budgerigar, a couple of little goldfish and he spoils them rotten."

Danny claimed: "He actually said to me before he went in that he's fed up with seeing most of these celebrities every year cutting a big fat pay cheque sitting on their hands, insulting the viewers who bother to pick up the phone and vote for them. It really is time someone made them work for a change. At least he's trying!"

Bear's been a divisive housemate.

When asked how Bear feels about eternal nomination at the hands of his fellow housemates, Danny said: "Of course he'd prefer not to be up because his sole purpose in there is to put a smile on your face and entertain the viewers and he can't do that sitting at home.

"But I bet he's more bothered that no one told him disgusting Aubrey had spat in his food and drink, especially after she got them all ganging up on him because he'd had a bit more airtime than her."

Aubrey was given a formal warning for that action.

Bear faces eviction tonight against Saira Khan, Lewis Bloor and Heavy D.

CBB airs 9pm on Channel 5.
