TOWIE's Megan McKenna has been defending Bear's antics on Celebrity Big Brother, saying he's just being a "typical game player."

Megan, 23, got to know Stephen Bear, 26, pretty well on the third series of MTV's Ex On The Beach, when she initially fancied him and they even shared a kiss before she switched her affections to now ex-fiancé Jordan Davies

Bear's been a divisive character.

Now, Reveal mag columnist Megan has told us why she thinks Bear's a good housemate, despite his divisive and controversial behaviour.

"I lived with Bear in the EOTB house for a month and I didn't think he was that bad. When you get to know him, he's a decent guy, but he is a typical game player. He's winding everyone up on purpose – he knows what he's doing and he loves it," she told us.

"Surely they can see he's just a performer? He doesn't give a f**k who he offends – but that's why he's such a good housemate. If he wasn't there, it would be a lot more boring."

Megan also backed Bear on Twitter, saying this week: "Why are people being so fucking low to @stephen_bear in that house. Get over it, he's a joker. It's a game!"

Bear's up for eviction tonight against Lewis Bloor, Heavy D and Renee Graziano. And even if he stays, he'll be up again and again and again as he's eternally nominated thanks to the other housemates' earlier decision.
