Stephen Bear's fiancée Jessica Smith shared one of the letters she's received from her partner since he was sentenced to 21 months in prison.
Bear was jailed earlier this month after he posted a video online of him having sex with his ex-girlfriend, Georgia Harrison, which was filmed without her consent.
Smith, who has been dating Bear since at least 2021, stood by the reality TV star in the wake of his conviction and has shared updates with her followers showing her going to visit him in prison.
Yesterday (19 March), she shared a snap of her and Bear together, writing: "I'll be strong for us, promise."
The pair have kept in contact through letters as well as Smith's prison visits, one of which Smith shared on her Instagram Story this weekend.
She posted only the last line of Bear's handwritten letter, writing alongside it that the notes 'keep [her] going when [she's] feeling low'.
"I read them over and over and it makes me feel closer to him," she added. "I miss him so much... sleeping is near enough impossible on my own."
The section of the letter that Smith shared with her followers reads: "I love you [so] much. Stephen."
Bear was found guilty in December of two counts of disclosing private sexual photographs and films with intent to cause distress, and of voyeurism.
Last week, Smith shared on Instagram that Bear had 'taught [her] what true love feels like'.
"He has healed me in so many different ways and treats me like a princess," she continued.
Smith went on to say Bear has the 'sweetest most kindest soul' and has treated her with the 'upmost respect', comments which come in stark contrast to those Harrison made when she spoke out about Bear's actions.
During an appearance on This Morning, Harrison said Bear's behaviour during their time together was 'disrespectful'.
“I don’t think I let myself comprehend how much was on the line until now," she said on the show.
"In hindsight, if he had got ‘not guilty’ [sic], I would have lost everything.
“I was silenced for two years. I would’ve been silenced for the rest of my life.
"And I would’ve been cancelled, realistically, because everyone would’ve believed that I had something to do with that awful video.”
As well as being sentenced to 21 months behind bars, Bear has been ordered to sign the sex offender register and has been handed a restraining order which prevents him from contacting Harrison for five years.
