Stephen spoke to The Sun after he reportedly pulled a woman into the pool at Brighton Beach House after being pushed in by one of his friends. He said: “I am very sorry if she felt upset or hurt by my actions. That was never my intention.”
He continued: “I’d been swimming and having dried and got fully dressed, a friend pushed me back into the pool. I took it in very good spirits and everyone was laughing and joking so seeing his friend sat on the edge of the pool, pulled her round her waist into the water with me. We’d enjoyed a really good time together and I felt it was all part of the fun.”

This isn’t the first time Stephen has faced controversy, as his former co-star on the show, Chris Ashby-Steed, claimed he had been bullied off the show by the star. Taking to Twitter, he wrote: “A year on, I’ve finally had the courage to stand up to a bully and start to tell the story of how @Stephenwebb71 forced me off @C4Gogglebox and how it’s affected my mental health since. Hopefully, the truth of my story will help others who are struggling."
