Stephen Bear has arrived in court to be sentenced for revenge porn charges against former Love Island star Georgia Harrison.
The 33-year-old reality star denied the allegations but was convicted of two counts of revenge porn and one count of voyeurism after a trial in December.
He filmed himself having sex with Miss Harrison in his garden on CCTV before sending a clip of it on WhatsApp and uploading it to his OnlyFans page.

The TV personality refused to apologise to Georgia when asked if he had any remorse as he spoke to press while walking into Chelmsford Crown Court on Friday (March 3) with girlfriend Jessica Smith.
He also posed for a selfie with fans wearing an all black attire as he continued to ignore questions from journalists waiting outside the court.
Bear has also claimed he was not given a fair trial and claimed that a positive that came out of the trial was him being diagnosed with ADHD, depression and anxiety.
His parents, Stephen and Linda, also attended the sentence hearing as well as Miss Harrison.
While Bear turned up to past court dates in a rented Rolls Royce and extravagant clothes, it's reported that he turned up for sentencing in a white Range Rover driven by his partner, who continues to stand by him.
Bear, who shot to notoriety on MTV’s Ex on the Beach, was due to be sentenced last month but it was put back so he could be assessed by a psychiatrist.
The court previously heard Bear, who won the 2016 Celebrity Big Brother and co-presented Just Tattoo Of Us with Geordie Shore star Charlotte Crosby, met Miss Harrison in 2012.
They started dating in October 2018 after appearing on MTV’s The Challenge together but by July 2019 had split.
During the trial, the court heard the video was filmed on August 2, 2020, and posted to his Only Fans account, a subscription-based adult website, on November 8.
It was uploaded with the caption: "Morning everyone. Can’t wait for you to see me f****** in my garden. Here’s a sneak peak. I will be dropping this video tonight."
It was said 273 people had viewed the video for $9.99 each – making Bear around £2,000.
Overall Bear made just shy of $50,000, or £40,000, on Only Fans from October 2020 up until its deactivation in early December.
On the day the footage was uploaded, the account was said to have raised the subscription fee from $7.50 to $50, before lowering it to $20.
Miss Harrison said she had gone to Bear’s house in Loughton, Essex, for a cup of tea and ended up on an all-day drinking session before returning to Bear's house.
She said they had sex in the garden but she had "absolutely no idea" he had CCTV in the garden, adding: “After what happened I was in the worst state of my life. I can’t explain the shame I felt. I couldn’t leave my room.
"My brother and sister had to see me having sex on his account."
During the trial the ex-roofer, from Loughton, Essex, admitted Miss Harrison did not know she was being recorded when she had sex with him and agreed she had not consented to it being uploaded to the internet.
But he denied being responsible – and said he had not seen evidence the video was ever uploaded.
He also told jurors: “I put in the best performance every time I have sexual intercourse with the ladies.

“I would say that’s an amazing session I had with a lady. I must have put in a great performance.”
He was arrested as he landed at Heathrow from a holiday in Dubai in January 2021.
Prosecutors said Bear’s phone, which has never been recovered, could have been “flushed down the plane toilet” shortly before he was arrested at Heathrow Airport on the way home from Dubai.
