Stephen Bear has become the second Celebrity Big Brother contestant to be given a formal warning, after security had to be called to the diary room.

On Wednesday, Aubrey O'Day was issued with a warning by Big Brother for spitting in Bear's sandwich, but now the Ex On The Beach star has earned a formal warning of his own for "unacceptable" behaviour.

Angry after a row with Heavy D in the early hours of the morning, he threw a mug against the wall in the smoking area, damaging a mirror.

But when reprimanded by Big Brother in the diary room and told he was being separated into a spare room, he complained, "This is a joke!" and tried to leave.

Security entered the diary room to ask Bear to sit down. He then apologised and accepted his formal warning.

The two had clashed after Bear, who shares a bed with Storage Hunter's Heavy D, brought Chloe Khan into the bedroom.

Khan and Bear had kissed earlier in the programme as part of a game of truth or dare.

Afterwards, Khan said her boyfriend would not mind as "it was just a dare", adding in the diary room: "What have I done? I've just kissed Bear! ...he has sex appeal but isn't my type."

However, with most of the housemates in bed, the two kissed again in the bathroom, before moving to the bedroom.

Heavy D complained: "I'm trying to get some sleep mate, what's wrong with ya? It's 2am in the morning," sparking the argument.

In scenes which will be aired on Thursday night, Samantha Fox also revealed she had recently found love.

Former Page 3 model Fox was in a long-term relationship with girlfriend Myra Stratton, who died last year following a two-year battle with cancer.

The 50-year-old told Marnie Simpson and Katie Waissel: "I met somebody a couple of months ago and I'm very happy. As you get older life goes so quick.

"I've now fell in love with another woman."

:: Celebrity Big Brother airs on Channel 5 at 9pm.
