Former Celebrity Big Brother star Cami Li has firmly branded Stephen Bear and Chloe Khan's relationship a "showmance" that would never happen in the outside world.

Bear had been hooking up with Chloe until her eviction on Friday night (12 August) which was pretty controversial as he actually entered the house with a girlfriend on the outside, his Ex On The Beach co-star Lillie Lexie Gregg.

Once in the house, he publicly dumped Lillie and hooked up with Chloe.

But Cami Li, who knows Bear in real life, has told Closer magazine she doesn't think there's any chance of Bear and Chloe making a romance work after the show.

She said: "Stephen would never date Chloe in the real world – he wouldn't even touch her! He's hooking up with her because he's bored in the house and needs something to do. It's a typical TV showmance."

Ouch. We're not sure Chloe will like to hear that, especially as she's revealed that she and Bear already have plans to go away together for a few days when he leaves the house.

Bear and Chloe's romance was rather controversial as Bear started the show dating Gregg. He then told the housemates he didn't think Lillie was the one, prompting her to tweet and confirm it was over as she was worth more.

Appearing on ITV's This Morning yesterday, Chloe said she didn't know Bear had a girlfriend when she first kissed him during the truth or dare game, and said once she did know, Bear made it clear he wanted to dump Lillie and move on.

"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," said Chloe.

Lillie responded by tweeting: "Just watched @itvthismorning - Bear is completely to blame. But to continue a physical relationship after you knew he had a girlfriend who he hadn't broke up with? And show no remorse?"
