Lee Ryan says his arrest has been a big "wake-up call".

The Blue singer - who was arrested on Friday (11.04.14) on suspicion of drink driving and later charged with failure to provide a specimen and criminal damage - has admitted he has "let people down".

He told the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "I know I've let people down. Being arrested and ending up in a cell was the biggest wake-up call to me.

"It made me realise there is a problem I can't keep ignoring. I need to do something about it."

It was confirmed yesterday (12.04.14) that Lee - who was also found with a controlled substance in his possession - will be going to rehab to help him overcome his persona issues.

He added: "Me going to rehab isn't a cop-out. I still take full responsibility for the way I've behaved.

"There is nobody to blame but myself and I'm deeply ashamed of what has happened.

"I am doing this because I have finally admitted I need help. I want to stop hurting the people around me."


Still cashing in on the success of The Big Reunion, the boy band hop off on tour to promote their latest album.
