GIVING imbeciles a platform has always been a sad by-product of the showbiz game.
There’s no guarantee that a terrific singer will be the sharpest tool in the box, or that a great actor will know the ins and outs of current affairs.
But there are times when, as a society, we simply need to say that someone’s ignorant attitude and outrageous behaviour has gone too far.
Reality TV scumbag Stephen Bear has now made himself the poster boy for talentless no-marks elevated to apparent “stardom”.
And while he may be a small-fry “star”, his social media platforms and appearances on shows such as Celebrity Big Brother and Celebs Go Dating have given him access to millions of young people who might, horrifyingly, admire his antics.
Last week I revealed Bear had been arrested at Heathrow Airport accused of posting a covertly shot video of himself having sex with Love Islander Georgia Harrison on X-rated subscription website OnlyFans — leaving her devastated.
But far from being appalled by the claims against him, the idiotic waste of space posted a video of himself reading out the rap sheet against him while grinning inanely.
In the YouTube video shot yesterday, he ranted: “Where do I f**king start? I’m back from Dubai and I’ve actually got a criminal case over my head.
“I’ve been charged with harassment, obstruct police officer, exposure and voyeurism.”
His guilt or innocence will be decided by the official channels — but his shamelessness knows no bounds.
He added: “Obstructing a police officer. What do you reckon I did? Do you reckon I got in his way? I think voyeurism because I’ve been to Dubai and I’ve gone on a voyage.”
In the video he appears to be driving his car while filming himself. Surely even he can’t be that stupid — although you wouldn’t bet against it.
On Celebrity Big Brother two years ago he revealed his aggressive, abusive behaviour — and a single brain cell which exclusively operates his penis.
He is now dating a girl of just 18 — who he is said to have begun romancing more than a year ago in the hope he could further her career as an online influencer.
I won’t name her again because I feel sorry for her being linked with him. She should run a million miles away and never look back.
Despite Bear being a clear wrong-un, he continues to land work. So today I’m issuing a plea to the showbiz industry.
Please stop supporting this clown, and hand the opportunities to people who appreciate the platform they have been given and at least occasionally try to do something positive with it.
This moron never will.
Mexi-go away, Kylie
SHE may be wearing a flesh-coloured bikini but Kylie Jenner certainly isn’t blending in here.
The reality star has escaped Los Angeles, where Covid cases have been soaring, to go to Mexico with friends.
And she is not hiding her trip – rubbing it in the faces of those sensibly staying at home.
Alongside this photo, in which she wears ridiculously long hair extensions, she wrote in Spanish on Instagram: “Sunshine warms me up a little.”
She also appeared to be having a whale of a time with her pals in a luxury villa as they danced for a TikTok video to a Nicki Minaj song. It’s ok for some.
Jesy in love split
JESY Nelson and actor boyfriend Sean Sagar have sparked rumours of a split after they deleted pictures of each other on Instagram.
Singer Jesy, who quit Little Mix last month, started dating the Our Girl star last April, although they have not been seen together since October.
Posting about him on social media back then, Jesy called Sean her “everything” but the image and caption have now been removed from her page.
TOMB Raider beauty Alicia Vikander and Star Wars actress Naomi Ackie are among the names on the jury panel to select the shortlist for this year’s Bafta EE Rising Star award.
Tom Hardy, John Boyega and Kristen Stewart are among those previously nominated for the gong, which celebrates up-and-coming acting talent.
The shortlist will be revealed on Wednesday, March 3, with the winner revealed at the ceremony on April 11.
Toby's on Tinder hooks
LOOKS like it’s heartbreak for Heart Radio’s Toby Anstis as he has split from his latest squeeze.
The DJ had struck up a romance with TV and film actress Cassie Bancroft just before lockdown in March last year and had enjoyed romantic weekends together.
However, it ended just before Christmas and now 50-year- old Toby, who was previously linked to Love Islander Amy Hart, has signed up to join Tinder.
A pal of Toby’s said: “They met just before Covid and then started dating. Sadly it fizzled out. Obviously, Toby was sad but he’s very content with himself and is happy being in his own company.
“He’s ready to get back on the horse. Toby has been on Tinder and Hinge too. The hilarious thing is he’s being called a ‘catfish’. A number of girls haven’t believed it really is him.”
Toby, who presents the Heart Dance breakfast show, was struck down by Covid last year. Since then he has been raising awareness with charity Age UK to help older people who are lonely and isolated due to lockdown.
Gem is like Liz
UNLUCKY-in-love Gemma Collins believes she will get married three times and emulate late actress Elizabeth Taylor, who had a string of marriages which ended in divorce.
Speaking on her Love Lounge podcast, single Gemma appeared to regret her long-time on/off romance with Towie’s James ‘Arg’ Argent by saying: “It’s totally fine to not be in a relationship.
"I wouldn’t get into a relationship until I was 30 if I had my time again – maybe 40. Just have fun.
“There is someone out there for everybody, I totally believe in that. I think there’s about three out there for me.
“I need to do an Elizabeth Taylor, I’m so getting married three times.”
If she does make it up the aisle, I doubt these comments will fill her husband with much hope.
OLIVIA Rodrigo is feeling the pressure after her debut single Drivers License went straight in at No1 in both the UK and the US last week.
She said: “You know it is a little bit daunting to have such a big song as the first song you’ve ever put out.
“But I really love all the other songs I’ve written too, and there’s a song that’s coming out soon and I think there’ll be a project some time later.
“I just really enjoy writing and feel so proud of the stuff that I’ve created, so that’s all I can do – I don’t have control of the other stuff.”
Rag's party barn
RAG’n’Bone Man will have the perfect place to party when it’s allowed again, as he’s building a giant barn just for that purpose.
The singer has submitted plans for the two-storey outbuilding at his £1million, four-bedroom home in East Sussex.
He wants a ground floor swimming pool, changing rooms, covered entrance and outdoor decking area, with a first floor “entertainment space” with a bar, kitchen and balcony terrace.
But he could face opposition for the plans as it lies next to an ancient woodland in a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
HALSEY has splashed out £7.5million for Liam Payne's old home in Los Angles.
She scooped up the five-bed home despite the ex-One Direction singer previously claiming it was haunted.
In a statement to the local council, his planning agent said: “The footprint has been determined by the required size of the pool and associated facilities therein.”
He will soon be raking in cash once again to fund the project, after teasing on Instagram last night that he will return with new music next Friday.
It’s been four years since his debut album came out, so it’s about time.
