He was released from prison early last week after serving half of his 21-month sentence for sharing a sex tape of his Love Island ex Georgia Harrison.

In the short clip, he jogs through a park wearing a white vest and tracksuit bottoms, throwing punches before winking at the camera. He performs a body building pose before the clip ends.

He comments on the clip: “It’s not how hard you can hit, it's how hard you can get hit and keep moving forword [sic] …”

Bear, who won Celebrity Big Brother in 2016, was jailed in March after filming and uploading footage of himself having sex with Ms Harrison without her permission on OnlyFans.

During his sentencing, Bear was also slapped with a restraining order and told not to contact Harrison for five years.

Bear must also keep police informed of his whereabouts for a decade.

He was seen leaving HMP Brixton last week sporting shaggy hair, a long beard, and a crucifix dangling from his neck.

He didn't comment as he walked out of the prison.

Following his sentencing last year, Bear was also ordered to pay Harrison the sum of £200,000 – the highest amount awarded in an image abuse case.

Months after the trial, he was forced to sell his Essex home for £525,000.

Georgia waved her anonymity to speak out against her reality star ex as she accused him of so-called "revenge porn".

She said she nearly died fighting him for two-and-a-half years and is now planning to sue Bear for destroying her career.

The star explained: “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, and I was going into septic shock."

The 28-year-old said she now has an 'onslaught' of women reaching out to her for help on social media following her high-profile case.

She also called for "massive online platforms" to be required to take down sexually explicit content which had been posted without consent. 

Speaking on a panel on the main stage of Labour's conference, Ms Harrison said it was "really important that victims feel they are going to be taken seriously when they're going to the police.

"I speak to a lot of girls who just feel like they weren't taken seriously or no one really understood when they did go to the police," she added.

"One thing I wanted to highlight from my personal experience is I feel there needs to be more support for victims when they do choose to call the police and go into the court system.'For me, from the day I reported the crime, it took me two whole years to get a conviction."
