Stephen Bear has reportedly been arrested at London’s Heathrow Airport on Friday 15 January morning.
The Celebrity Big Brother star, who turned 31 today, is said to have been taken into custody after landing back in the UK following a sunny trip to Dubai.
An eyewitness told MailOnline that the former Just Tattoo of Us presenter was handcuffed by two plain-clothes police officers who held each of his arms in the baggage reclaim area. A third officer is also said to have been in attendance.
Stephen, who was recently left “gutted” as he shared a tribute to Heavy D following his death, is said to have worn a bright orange Moncler puffer jacket and appeared distressed by the arrest, but didn’t resist.

“He was mumbling under his breath and clearly wasn’t happy,” they told the publication.
Essex police told OK! online : “A man has been arrested in connection with an investigation into the disclosure of sexual photographs without consent.
“The 31 year old man from Loughton was arrested on Friday 15 January on suspicion of disclosing private sexual photographs or films without consent with intent to cause distress, harassment, and obstructing a police officer.
“He remains in custody for questioning.”
OK! has approached Stephen’s representative for further comment.
Stephen found fame after starring on the Channel 4 series Shipwrecked back in 2011, where two teams compete with each other for new members, with the larger team winning a cash prize at the end.
The star went on to appear in several reality TV shows, including MTV’s Ex on the Beach and Celebrity Big Brother – which he emerged the winner of.
He then went on to present Just Tattoo of Us with former Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby, who he reunited with two years after their split, and most recently, he took part in The Challenge.
