Ex On The Beach star Lillie Lexie Gregg has admitted that her ex-boyfriend Stephen Bear is still definitely "her type" when it comes to men.

Lillie opened up about her previous relationships with Gaz Beadle and Bear in an interview with new! magazine and when asked if she has a type, she replied: "Yeah. Bear. I like pretty boys."

But while he may have been her ideal date, Lillie and Bear's romance never worked out and she admits they no longer speak.

"When I met him, I didn't think for one minute we'd end up together when we got home [after Ex On The Beach]," she said. "He was honestly such a gentleman to me. Obviously when he was away from me, he was a totally different person."

Revealing what she now looks for in a guy, Lillie added: "The opposite of what I've gone for in the past. I know what I want now... Someone who's loyal, faithful and honest. I don't care about a six pack."

Lillie initially met Bear while filming Ex On The Beach's fifth series, earlier this year. She had flown out to Thailand to surprise her ex Gaz on the show, following their split in November 2015. Lillie and Gaz hadn't spoken after their break up, and Lillie never knew why Gaz had chosen to end things so suddenly - he later revealed it was due to his career on Geordie Shore.

Bear was there to help take Lillie's mind off Gaz - especially as it came out on the show, he had cheated her on twice - and they ended up hitting it off. Despite Bear appearing to blow his chances by kissing Chrysten Zenoni behind Lillie's back, she decided to give him another go and they went on to date following the show for several months.

Lillie and Bear had been together when he starred on Celebrity Big Brother, but Bear split with Lillie onscreen and pursued his housemate Chloe Khan instead.

Confusingly, Ex On The Beach aired following CBB and Lillie has said she was shocked to hear how Bear had spoken about her on the show to the camera. When he went after Chrysten while romancing Lillie, Bear admitted it was because he had grown "bored" of Lillie because she "wouldn't put out."

Speaking to MTV Australia in October, Lillie said: "I don't think people realise I didn't know anything of what Bear was doing until I watched it myself on TV. Obviously for me, I only saw [how] Bear was being around me, when he was always lovely and funny. I didn't hear what he was saying when it was just him and the camera and the way he was really being. I honestly had no idea about that.

"I've literally have just had the shock of my life watching it back and seeing it all back. Let's just say I'm glad we are no longer together."

Lillie is now dating footballer Josh McEachran - Brooke Vincent's ex-boyfriend. Lillie has remained relatively private about their romance, but she has said about Josh: "We are just taking it very slowly. He definitely treats me a lot nicer than anyone else has! He's totally different; just really polite, calm and quiet."
