Sam Reece has tweeted Lillie Lexie Gregg his support, urging her to "stay strong" after seeing her ex-beau Stephen Bear publicly move on in the Celebrity Big Brother house.

Sam knows all too well what it's like to have CBB break down a relationship, as earlier this year, all eyes were on him as his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis grew closer to Irish model Jeremy McConnell.

Offering Lillie some words of advice, Sam tweeted the Ex On The Beach star to say: "Hope [you're] ok @LillieGregg stay strong!"

Sam was speaking from experience in his tweet to Lillie, as he had to deal with Stephanie claiming she 'needed to be single' while in the CBB house.

Steph had made her debut on the show in a relationship with Sam, and had gushed to her housemates her plans for herself and Sam to get married. Viewers then watched as she formed a close relationship with Jeremy McConnell, and later told her housemate she was falling in love with him.

While Steph was in the house, Sam withdrew his support from her on social media and told followers that he wanted to speak to Steph in person once she was out. Steph then claimed on the show that Sam 'hadn't treated her well' while they were together and accused him of 'cheating' on her - both which Sam has denied.

Stephanie went on to date Jeremy, but the pair split for the fourth and final time back in May. She is currently pregnant with her first child. Sam, meanwhile, is in a relationship with girlfriend Taylor Ward.

As for Lillie, she has now found herself in a similar situation to Sam.

She had been dating Bear prior to his appearance on CBB and recently revealed that Bear had told her he 'wanted things to work out' for them while he was on the show.

However, viewers have now seen Bear declare Lillie is 'not the one' for him anymore and he has publicly moved on with former X Factor star Chloe Khan.

Discussing his romance with Lillie (which he initially kept quiet about), Bear claimed he thought he would be with Lillie forever, but being in the CBB house has made him question their romance.

He told his housemates: "I need to be single. I thought I would be with her forever, but after thinking in here, she's not The One. I haven't got time for a girlfriend."

Lillie responded by telling fans that her relationship with Bear is now over for good.

She tweeted: "No going back for me, guys. I'm better than that - and yes, I know my worth. Thank you so much for your kind words, you're all lovely."

Viewers then heard Bear and Chloe getting intimate in the toilet together at the end of the episode, but he has now denied that the pair had sex - like many people had thought.

Bear told Lewis Bloor: "Nothing happened, we were just kissing and her boobies are massive!"
