10 moments that prove Lee Ryan of Blue is made of morto

You won’t actually believe some of these.

AS YOU MAY have read in this morning’s Dredge, Lee Ryan of Blue recently embarrassed himself on a night out with Dave Grohl.

Speaking to NME, Dave Grohl said:

There was this English singer who was with us who was completely wasted. We almost had to throw him out. Have you heard of this band, Blue? The guy kept telling us how many million records he’s sold. I was like, ‘Really? You?’


The thing is, this is not the first time Lee has embarrassed himself in public.  In fact, some might say he’s made a habit of it.

Here are 10 of Lee Ryan’s most morto moments.

The time he named his son Rain

Lee hooked up with Blue fan Samantha Miller in 2007  when she posted sexy photographs on his Myspace page (remember when Myspace was a thing?  Gas.).  They had a baby in 2008 and have had an on again/off again relationship ever since.

Their son’s name is Rain.  Rain Ryan.

The time he said he’d love to do porn

Speaking to Closer magazine in 2011, Lee said:

“I’d love to do porn. I would! I think I’d be great. I’d be brilliant. I wouldn’t stop though, that’s the hard thing about being a porn star.”

The time he pissed all of America off post-9/11

Shortly after the September 11 attacks Lee decided he had something to say about the media coverage during an interview.

Lee: What about whales? They are ignoring animals that are more important. Animals need saving and that’s more important. This New York thing is being blown out of proportion.
Simon from Blue: Shut up Lee.
Lee: Who gives a f*** about New York when elephants are being killed?
Duncan from Blue: Shut up.
Lee: I’m not afraid to say this, it has to be said and that’s why I’m the outspoken one from the band

Blue’s fledgling break in America ended soon after.

The time he talked about dying his pubic hair

“I haven’t shaved my private parts, but I dyed them once for a laugh! They looked more ginger, though!”

The time he called himself a rock’n'roll artist

Speaking about Blue’s ‘wild’ early days, Lee told the Mirror:

“I was in the top 10 rock’n'roll artists – up there with Sid Vicious. I always had that edge.”

The time he said he was like Gandhi

In the same Mirror interview:

“If you go on the internet and type in ‘Lee Ryan one liners’, I think I’m on par with Gandhi.”

The time he tried it on with Laura Whitmore

When he ran into the gorgeous Laura Whitmore at a Ninendo Party in 2011, he displayed a real smoothness with the ladies by saying:

“Are you f****** anyone at the moment?”

The time he said he would like to have sex with Margaret Thatcher

“Margaret Thatcher would get it.”

Ah here.

The time he called himself a ‘bordering genius’

He meant borderline.

The time he tweeted Tom Cruise about a film he'd written

Unfortunately the tweet has since disappeared, but it read:

'I have a film I've written about retelin can I send it to you please ide love you to read it!!! Lee ryan!!! X'

Oh Lee.  It has to be said the world would be a less entertaining place without you.
