What will this wake-up call mean?
The rather depressing news that Lee Ryan had been arrested for alleged drink driving and possession of drugs has been followed by a statement from the former Blue star, who insists that spending a night in the cells has acted as a “wake-up call”.

He explained: "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," he added.

Blue star said the pair were actually doing shots together at the bar
It was one of the oddest stories of recent weeks, Dave Grohl getting irate at Blue’s Lee Ryan for turning up at his Sound City Players after party in London the other week hammered and ruining the occasion. However, if you believe the has-been boyband member the whole thing was entirely fabricated – and Grohl himself has been in touch personally to assure him that he was misinterpreted. This is the guy who’s a firm believer that he’s seen UFOs before, by the way.
"He messaged me... and he's like, 'No, I never said that'," Ryan claimed at the Chortle Awards, referencing Grohl’s comments that he almost had to get the performer thrown out of the bash in February. "He messaged me through our PA and said, 'Tell Lee I'm sorry about that, I don't know where that came from, but Lee's a really cool guy, I really love him'.
Continuing, Ryan painted his own version of the story. "Me and him were doing shots with each other at the bar, it was wicked” he claimed. “For me he's such a rock legend... I didn't ruin his party, I was just pissed like the rest of them. I think what he said was, 'Lee was wrecked out of his head', and I was." Given that in Grohl’s reported quotes the one-time Nirvana drummer didn’t even seem sure as to who Lee Ryan was (shocking, we know) we’re not sure whether to believe this. Still, it’s great publicity for the Blue man, so he seems to think. "I was really happy with it, if I'm honest. I've been kicked out of a few parties, but it's fun when you get kicked out. Being told to leave is great. 'Get out you're too pissed', 'Wicked'." Keep on trucking Lee.
British pop star also-ran and rock royalty collide
Of all the people who you’d think would be able to get under the skin of Rock’s official nice guy Dave Grohl, you’d have Blue singer Lee Ryan pretty far down the list. In fact, you’d have Blue singer Lee Ryan pretty far down the list of people who’d even be within 100 feet of the former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters front man. However, after Grohl brought his Sound City Players to London last month, to play a show at the O2 Arena, it was Ryan who somehow managed to crash the after party and turn the usually smiling rocker’s night sour.
Apparently Ryan turned up to the after party steaming drunk and proceeded to make nuisance of himself. “There was this English singer who was with us who was completely wasted” Grohl revealed to The Sun newspaper, “We almost had to throw him out” he added, before asking the interview, “Have you heard of this band, Blue?” As the penny dropped, Grohl continued “The guy kept telling us how many million records he’s sold. I was like, ‘Really? You?’” Don’t worry, Dave, it’s something we’ve all wondered.
That said, he does make good copy on Twitter. Ryan hasn’t reacted to the story, but his latest tweet did offer some profundities, as he wrote “I look but there's no chance.. I peer into the light hoping to find somewhere to lay my head in the dark. You won't see me.. You never did x”
