According to his Ex On The Beach co-star and former flame Kayleigh Morris, Bear had told Lillie he had planned to appear on CBB in order to buy her an engagement ring...
She told Daily Star: "He told Lillie he was going on CBB to buy an engagement ring so they could buy a house and get married. He has made it seem like they were not that serious on the show, but just a few days before he went in, he's telling her he loves her and talking about marriage."
Kayleigh, who is good friends with Lillie, revealed she had warned her pal about Bear and told Lillie 'not to trust him.'
She claims that Lillie has been keeping an eye on Bear on the show and 'won't take his behaviour lying down.'
Bear had entered the house dating Lillie, but kept quiet on their romance. He did tell his housemate Renee Graziano that he 'wouldn't be kissing anyone' in the house, but fans later watched him lock lips with Chloe Khan as part of a drinking game dare.
Bear then appeared to end his romance with Lillie, by declaring he wants to be single again and 'doesn't have time' for a girlfriend. He then told his housemates that he doesn't think Lillie is 'the one' for him anymore, and went on to pursue a romance with Chloe instead.
Lillie has since responded to Bear's steamy antics with Chloe and insisted she is "embarrassed" over her ex-beau moving on so publicly.
She said in a recent interview with Daily Star: "He craves attention. TV shows are pressure. There's a pressure on people not to be forgotten about. I'm embarrassed and can't go back on what's happened now. I'm worth more than that."
Lillie had initially tweeted a broken heart emoji at Bear's initial comments about her, before suggesting to her followers 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."
Bear and Lillie initially met while filming for Ex On The Beach's fifth series back in April. They went public with their romance a month later, although Lillie revealed that she and Bear hadn't yet made their relationship official prior to his appearance on CBB.
Chloe, meanwhile, has insisted she knew nothing about Bear's relationship with Lillie - until he mentioned her after kissing Chloe for the first time.
Defending their in-house romance, she said during an appearance on This Morning: "He said he'd made a decision he didn't want to be with her anymore and he obviously couldn't get out to tell her but he wanted it to be known he was moving on and didn't want to be with her."
She added that Bear had told her to "wait" for him, and the pair are planning on going on holiday together.
Chloe was the third housemate to be evicted from the show.
