Lee Ryan will 'never' return to Celebrity Big Brother
Lee Ryan can't think of "anything worse" than appearing on 'Celebrity Big Brother' again.
The 33-year-old singer - who appeared on the Channel 5 programme in 2014 - has vowed "never" to go back on the forthcoming series or any other reality television shows because he is "too sensitive" and had to check into rehab after being involved in a dramatic love triangle with Casey Batchelor and Jasmine Waltz two years ago.
Speaking to New! magazine about a 'CBB' return, the former Blue band member said: "I promise you on my life I wouldn't do that. I couldn't think of anything worse.
"Everyone f**king hated me.
"I went to rehab after - there's a reason.
"It was awful what happened to me and the hate that I got on Twitter. I'm too sensitive to be able to go through it. I think you could tell when I was in there. I'm too sensitive to do anything like that. I probably wouldn't do anything like that again."
This news comes after rumours spread the lothario was set to head back into the infamous house for the forthcoming special edition of the popular reality TV show 'Gold Stars vs All Stars'.
Lee's former band mate Antony Costa previously teased: "Never say never. He'd be mad not to. I think he'd be brilliant. He was brilliant in it."
Meanwhile, Lee has revealed he wants to focus solely on his music career, as he has admitted people are starting to forget he was first known for his high-pitched vocals and mainly recognise him for being a reality star.
He said: "I just want to do my music. It p**ses me off when people go, 'Do you still sing?' I'm like, 'That's what I am!' I don't want to be known for being a reality TV star, because it's just not where I'm from. I'm from a band that sold millions of albums and sung with people like Sir Elton John and Stevie Wonder. That's who I am and that's where I'm heading."
