Celebs Go Dating viewers lash out at Stephen Bear for ditching date after 8 minutes
Celebs Go Dating viewers couldn’t believe what they were watching last night when Stephen Bear did a runner on his date after only eight minutes.
Stephen Bear has already raised a few eyebrows on the show with his questionable pulling techniques e.g. asking every single girl he meets what their public hair situation is like (cringe).
However, the former Ex On The Beach star really outdid himself during last night’s episode when he ditched his poor date after spending a measly eight minutes with her.
Dating agents Nadia and Eden set up the date between Stephen and Dakota after the celebrity was impressed by her picture, but it turns out she was not what he was expecting in person.
After blurting out some unconvincing compliments, the reality star suddenly stood up and rushed to the toilet. Ordering some garlic bread from the waiter before he left, he sneakily grabbed his jacket and did a runner out of the restaurant.
He explained to the camera afterwards that he wasn’t attracted to Dakota, and therefore just had to leave. He said: “I can’t lie, she’s nothing like what I was expecting. It’s not for me. I can’t do it.”
Of course, poor Dakota was left waiting for him at the table until the waiter finally delivered a note from Stephen reading: “Left a chicken in the oven. Call ya babe.”

Adding insult to injury, he later admitted that he only called her babe because he couldn’t remember her name. What a dream, right ladies?
Fans of the show were disgusted by his behaviour and took to Twitter to call Bear out:
