He then seemed to be everywhere, signing up to Celebs Go Dating and presenting Just Tattoo Of Us alongside then-girlfriend Charlotte Crosby, 28.
But since the reality duo split, Bear all but vanished from screens – until now.
The notorious prankster has confessed he’s signed a contract for another series, with an enormous audience.
“I’m going up there to sign a contract to one of the biggest shows I think I’ve done to date”
Taking to Instagram, the London last said: “I’m on my way to central London now, got some really exciting news.
“I’m going up there to sign a contract to one of the biggest shows I think I’ve done to date.
“The audience is probably 10 times bigger. It’s like a bus, it all just comes at once.”
Bear didn’t reveal what show it was, adding, “I’m not allowed,” – so what could it be?
He’s already done Celebrity Big Brother and this year’s Strictly Come Dancing has kicked off.
The other two notable shows coming up are I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! and Dancing on Ice.
They both have massive audiences, with last year’s series averaging 9.96 million 6.3 million respectively.
Bear’s series of Celebrity Big Brother averages 2.1 million – so neither I’m A Celeb nor Dancing on Ice are 10 times that.
They are definitely far more than Celebrity Big Brother though, so could Bear have made a simple mathematical mistake?
And does that mean Bear will be jetting off Down Under and heading into the I’m A Celeb camp?
We won’t have long to wait, as I’m A Celeb will return in a few months to ITV.
