Ex On The Beach stars Stephen Bear and Jem Lucy have got us all talking when it comes to their romance, especially after getting matching tattoos...

Big move, right?

Bear and Jem have been showing off their new inkings on Snapchat, and it seems the pair have marked their romance by opting for a heart tattoo.

Both Bear and Jem have had half a heart tattooed onto their thumbs, meaning that when they hold hands, their designs interlink and make a heart.

That's a pretty sweet gesture for a duo that have played down their romance.

Fans had speculated whether Bear and Jem were dating, after the co-stars appeared to be spending a lot of time together. Jem had insisted she and Bear were just good friends, but now it seems their friendship has progressed.

Bear revealed he is seeing someone during a Facebook Live with MTV Australia, and later confessed that person is Jem - who happened to be sitting next to him during his phone interview. Bear said: "I'm seeing a couple of people, maybe. I'm sort of seeing someone... I have one sexual partner at the minute, I'll leave it at that."

Speaking about Jem, Bear added: "We like hanging out, man. We go for food. I can't sit through films so we don't go to films. We have cuddles and there's nothing wrong with cuddles."

Again, he and Jem claimed they were just friends (with a few benefits....), but after their latest declaration to each other, something tells us things could be more serious? What do you reckon?

Bear's romance with Jem comes after his split from ex-girlfriend Lillie Lexie Gregg. Bear and Lillie had met on Ex On The Beach's fifth series and dated for several months following the show.

They had been together when Bear entered the CBB house, but he later split from Lillie onscreen, telling his housemates he 'didn't have time' for a girlfriend and no longer thought Lillie was The One. Bear then publicly moved on with his housemate Chloe Khan (who is now dating Ashley Cain), prompting Lillie to surprise him in the house and tell Bear he had "embarrassed and humiliated" her.

Lillie surprised Bear in the CBB house.

Lillie, meanwhile, has now hinted she is dating again, but has kept her new beau under wraps.

Confusingly, though, viewers will soon see Lillie kiss her ex-boyfriend Gaz Beadle on Ex On The Beach. After learning Bear had kissed Chrysten Zenoni behind her back, Lillie cooled off her romance with him and ends up falling back into the arms of Gary, despite learning he had cheated on her a second time during their relationship of nearly two years.
