The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' winner - who is simply known as Bear - was kicked off the E4 dating show in January after producers found out he was dating Charlotte Crosby but, following their very public split last month, they've decided to give him another chance and have invited him back for the next series in 2018.

An insider told the Sun Online: "Bear is really looking forward to joining the show once again, and has vowed to take it seriously this time.

"He's excited to meet some nice girls and hopefully find love."

His new gig comes just days after it was revealed he'd quit his presenting gig on 'Just Tattoo Of Us', which he hosted with the blonde beauty, after he'd received a better offer.

A source said recently: "Bear has been offered another gig and the dates clashed with 'Just Tattoo Of Us' filming so he has decided to leave. MTV tried their best to come up with a solution but it just wasn't possible. Once Bear was offered the other job, producers knew it was only a matter of time before he quit the show."

Bosses at MTV are no doubt devastated to see the 27-year-old reality TV star go as they were trying to come up with a solution so that he and Charlotte, 27, could both present the show but separately so that there wasn't any animosity on screen.

A source explained: "Charlotte and Bear just can't work together since they broke up. One minute they love each other - the next it's hate.

"MTV are desperate to keep them both involved with the show, they don't want a 'him or her' situation. There are discussions taking place now to try and work it all out. They think they could split the show between them and have them present separate episodes. Scotty T would be great for Charlotte to work with but it's not clear at the moment who Stephen's co-presenter would be.

"No contracts have been signed yet. It could all change in a couple of days though - both sides are weighing up the options right now."
