Look out Essex! Is Bear set to be let loose on TOWIE?

The CBB winner has strong links to the show and fans are desperate for it to happen

He's conquered Celebrity Big Brother, he's run amok with Ex on the Beach and now Stephen Bear has another reality TV show in his sights.

The controversial celebrity is keen to add Essex to his list and a stint on The Only Way Is Essex could become a reality.

The 26-year-old floated the question on Instagram  to his 419,000 followers as to whether he should lend his 'talents' to TOWIE.

Bear wrote: "Get used to this mug what's everyone's thoughts ?? X"

There were plenty of thoughts as well... mostly urging for this situation to become a reality.

Well, as real as TOWIE can be!

One described this as the "best news ever", though judgement may have to be reserved on that after the way he terrorised his fellow housemates in CBB.

The scenario isn't out of the question though as despite being an East Londoner.

Bear has connections with Megan McKenna and Jon Clarke in the ITVbe show.

What is looking a more definite bet is that the Bear family could become stars of their own 'fly-on-the-wall' Kardashian style show.

Speaking to The Sun, Bear's brother Danny said: “We’re a family of entertainers – it’s in our DNA.

“Our old man says: ‘A day without laughter is a day wasted.’ We’re a proper East End family and we’re always  laughing and joking.

“Maybe we’ve already been offered something.

“Stephen’s management have got a load of meetings lined up for when he comes out.”

One way or another, Bear is not going to slink away back in to the woods and is going to become a fixture on our TV screens for the foreseeable future.

Let's hope that Essex is ready!
