British boyband Blue reportedly missed Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan's wedding because of Lee Ryan going bankrupt
Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan's plan to have Blue perform at their wedding reportedly fell apart because of Lee Ryan going bankrupt.
The 28-year-old reality TV star and his 27-year-old wife had been in advanced talks with the British boyband for them to perform at their wedding on Sunday (24.05.15), but the ambition collapsed just a week before they tied the knot, with the band telling the celebrity couple they wouldn't be able to appear due to "personal problems".
A source said: "Mark and Michelle love their cheesy music and are massive Blue fans.
"But then the band said they'd regrettably have to pull out. It was just one of those things."
Despite the band's withdrawal coming around the time Lee, 31, filed for bankruptcy, a source close to the group insisted they were always unlikely to have been able to play at the wedding.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Their schedule is still very busy.
"They were never looking like they were able to perform."
In April, Blue - which also includes Antony Costa, Duncan James and Simon Webbe - were dropped by their label Sony, but subsequently insisted they would continue to release music independently.
