Georgia Harrison says Stephen bear 'fooled her' into loving him before sex video hell

Georgia Harrison has condemned her former boyfriend Stephen Bear for profiting from their sex life and fooling her into loving him.

The former Love Island star, 28, was unknowingly filmed having consensual sex with Bear, with the footage then being shared on WhatsApp and posted on OnlyFans.

Earlier this month, Bear, 33, was handed a 21 month prison sentence after being found guilty of voyeurism by a majority verdict and guilty to two counts of disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress by an unanimous verdict by a jury.

Georgia waived her right to anonymity in a bid to help others who might be going through a similar ordeal.

Opening up about the ordeal on This Morning, Georgia condemned Bear for fooling her into loving him before discovering that he had contrived to use their sex life for financial gain without her knowledge.

She told hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield: "Psychologically, it affects your self-worth.

"You think you’re in love and the whole time they were just having sex with you for monetary value, to sell on the internet."

Georgia also claimed the stress caused by Bear's decision to publish the explicit footage almost killed her after she developed a cyst on her ovary.

Addressing the impact it had on her physical and mental health on This Morning, the former Love Island contestant admitted she was in 'a state of grief.'

"I was at home, drinking too much, hospitalised because of a cyst on my ovary," she explained. "Psychically I deteriorated. People don’t realise it was two-and-a-half years. Two years ago sitting here I would be a mess."

Georgia is set to open up about her ordeal in a new documentary, which airs at 10pm on ITV2 on Monday.

She recently explained how her physical health deteriorated in the wake of the ordeal, adding to The Sun : "When it first happened, the physical effects on me were just horrific. I had acne come up all over my face. I ended up getting a cyst infection - the cyst eventually burst - and I was in hospital from stress. They said my kidneys, my pelvis, and multiple organs were infected.

"I was going into septic shock. Bear has never apologised to me once. It’s one thing to deny it, but to show absolutely no remorse, it makes no sense. It’s like my feelings don’t matter."
