CBB: Bear has said he is feeling "strong", after coming face-to-face with his ex-girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg.

Viewers recently saw Lillie enter the house to confront ex Bear, telling him she has been left "humiliated" after he dumper her onscreen and publicly moved on with Chloe Khan in the house.

But despite crumbling and breaking down into tears following Lillie's visit, Bear has now said that he is feeling 'strong.'

Asked how he is feeling by Aubrey O'Day, Bear admits: "Better than yesterday."

He then adds: "I feel charged, strong."

His housemates, meanwhile, claim that Bear is now a 'different person' after seeing Lillie again. Frankie says: "It was amazing to watch him be quiet... it's going to make him much easier to live with."

Ricky, however, isn't convinced it will last, quickly adding: "For a minute."

Bear admitted to having a tough day in the Diary Room while reflecting on Lillie's appearance. He tried to explain his reasons for ending his relationship with Lillie, telling Big Brother: "In the long run, she would've got hurt a lot more. I had to break away from her, it's the hardest thing I had to do. I would've married her.

"I think about her every day but I can't be with her. It's not fair on her. I was adamant I wouldn't get with anyone else. I knew her for two and a half months, everything happens for a reason..."

Bear had remained silent and just shrugged his shoulders when Lillie had spoken to him.

She said: "This is the hardest thing I've ever had to do, I just needed to see you… it's so surreal… I'm having to watch this from home. You had me with you until the car came to collect you; you left me with your family. You asked me to be there when you got home, I was supporting you 100 per cent. The embarrassment and humiliation I've had… this is all one big game to you, it is a joke at my expense."

Following her surprise visit airing onscreen, Lillie told fans that she has now had "closure" from her ex.

She tweeted: "Hardest decision to go in the house... It was for closure & that's what I got. Thank you again for all of the kind messages it's appreciated."

CBB continues tonight at 9pm on Channel 5.
