Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear has said he won't rush things with housemate Chloe Khan now they're back in the real world.

The Ex On The Beach star, 26, hooked up with model Chloe, 25, while cooped up inside the CBB house this summer. She was the third housemate to be evicted, while Bear went on to win the show.

Appearing on ITV's Loose Women on Tuesday (30 August), Bear was asked whether he and Chloe are together.

He replied: "What it is with Chloe is she's the nicest girl I've ever met in my whole life. Who knows what it might bring? I don't want anyone else for now but I will take it nice and slow."

Bear and Chloe's romance had a somewhat controversial start as he entered the CBB house dating his EOTB co-star Lillie Lexie Gregg. But he then dumped Lillie on TV, hooking up with Chloe instead.

If things do work out between Bear and Chloe, however, then Chloe's one very lucky girl, as Bear told the Loose Women panel all he wants is to be happy in life and treat his next girlfriend like a princess.

"I want to be happy in life, provide for my next girlfriend, have a lovely family, ten kids." he said. "I love all my family and I want to make as much money as possible to provide for them and give to charity. If I'm making money I want everyone else around me making money."

"The next girlfriend I have, I will treat her well and hopefully it works out and we get married," he added, pointing to a tattoo on his left hand.

"This tattoo represents someone having my back. I want us to have each other's backs through everything, the low points and high points. And grow a big empire with the bird I'm with."

Speaking to our colleagues at Digital Spy and other reporters after the grand finale on Friday night, Bear had said: "Chloe is the nicest girl I've met in a very, very long time. And I'm excited that she's alright."

As for whether he sees a future with her, he replied: "Yeah, I'd love to see her again. I think she's amazing as a person and see what happens from there."

Mother of one Chloe, meanwhile, has said she's eager to see where things go with Bear as well. Ahead of the finale, she tweeted: "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."
