Celebrity Big Brother's Chloe Khan has said she'll always support Stephen Bear no matter what happens between them when he leaves the house.

The former X Factor hopeful hooked up with Ex On The Beach star Bear during her time in the house and is preparing to be reunited with him after this evening's live final.

Of course, now the show is ending, there has been plenty of speculation about whether Bear and Chloe will date properly outside the house, or whether their hook up will prove to be nothing more than a house fling.

Whatever happens, Chloe is Team Bear.

She tweeted today: "In answer to all tweets: It doesn't matter what happens between B and I when he gets out. I have his back regardless. Above all we are friends."

Bear entered the house dating his EOTB co-star Lillie Lexie Gregg, but dumped her on TV, telling everyone he wanted to be single and he wasn't sure she was the one for him.

He then shared several kisses with Chloe, progressing to a racy massage, steamy shower and something that elicited a lot of moaning from Chloe behind the toilet door. (She's denied they had sex.)

Chloe and Bear never put a label on their romance before her eviction two weeks ago, as Bear pointed out to Renee Graziano this week when she called Chloe his girlfriend.

"I didn't use the words 'girlfriend and boyfriend' so technically we're not," said Bear. "I don't make quick jumps into relationships."

The steamy massage had us all talking!

Chloe, meanwhile, told ITV's This Morning last week: "We have plans. He did ask me to wait for him and he said if he went [during Friday's eviction] he would wait for me. And he said we'd go away for a few days when he gets out and just talk."

Bear has also suggested he's missing Chloe, writing her name across his body inside the house and painting her initials on his cheek at one stage. He also keeps a picture of her in his shoe!

The CBB final kicks off tonight from 9pm on Channel 5.
