Stephen Bear breaks lockdown to confront Instagram over blocking his account

STEPHEN Bear appeared to break coronavirus rules again yesterday as he travelled from Essex to London to confront Instagram HQ over blocking his account.

The reality star told his fans that he was driving to the headquarters after his Instagram was disabled and hacked in January.

The star said he was "gutted" to be blocked from the popular social media site.

The star, who lives in Essex, made the two hour round trip journey.

Taking to his YouTube channel, he said: "Today I am driving to the Instagram headquarters in London, as you know my Instagram got disabled and hacked.

"I thought I'd take it upon myself to go down there and see what happens. So fingers crossed I get back my Instagram or at least talk to a human about the problem."

The Ex On The Beach star arrived at the building only to be told that it was the wrong office.

He then decided to visit Facebook HQ but was refused entry into the building.

A frustrated Bear fumed: "I'm not going to get my Instagram back, 10 years of doing the platform, all of my memories have gone, all my lovely photos and funny videos.

"All the brands I've worked with, that's all gone. So a lot of my income has stopped now."

Government rules state that people must remain in their local area unless they need to travel for work.

Other reasons allowed for leaving home locally include shopping for food, seeking medical assistance, exercising, education or to meet a support bubble.

This isn't the first time that Bear has appeared to have broken lockdown rules.

The star was accused him of breaking lockdown rules when he hung out with his nieces.

The reality TV star – who was last month arrested over revenge-porn claims – got the two little girls to mime 'f**k' in a TikTok video.

He's uploaded eight videos of them together in the past 24 hours after setting up an account, leading to viewers claiming he had breached Covid rules.

His sister's young kids sat on Bear's lap as they mimed: 'F*** you anxiety and insecurities. Not today. Be gone."

Bear covered his mouth with his hand as he pretended to be shocked as he heard the youngest girl swear.

The Ex On The Beach star arrived back in the UK from Dubai on his 31st birthday and was arrested by police at Heathrow Airport.

He had been abroad for six weeks to escape the UK lockdown, but returned to his Essex property after being let out on bail.

Bear lives alone, so under Covid-19 rules is able to 'bubble up' with his sister's family.

But had already been seen spending time with his then girlfriend.

One of Bear's followers who saw the video, responded: "You're not supposed to be mixing with others outside your household, how many more lockdown rules are you going to break?"

Another added: "I hope this is within social bubble otherwise yet another lockdown rule broken."

The star also broke quarantine rules to see Tia and grab coffee on the morning he got out of custody.

His ex-girlfriend Georgia Harrison has accused him of posting a sex video of her online.

Bear was arrested on suspicion of disclosing private sexual images or film without consent with intent to cause distress, voyeurism, harassment and obstructing a police officer.

Th Ex on the Beach star has denied the accusations.
