Reports claim police also found a bag containing traces of white powder when they arrested the Blue singer, 30.

After the police pulled over his Range Rover for ‘erratic driving’, Lee allegedly refused to take a breathalyser test.

A Met Police spokesperson said of his arrest: “Lee Ryan, 30, will appear on bail at Ealing Magistrates’ court on Friday, May 2, charged with failing to provide a specimen and criminal damage.”

It is claimed that Lee was charged with criminal damage for urinating in his cell.

Celebrity Big Brother star Lee’s spokesman gave a statement on his behalf, revealing that he plans to check himself into rehab following the arrest.

The spokesman told a UK newspaper: “His private life has been played out very publicly, which culminated yesterday with his arrest by the police.

“This low point has caused considerable concern to his loved ones. With this in mind, Lee decided to check himself into rehab at the first opportunity to seek the help he needs.

“We are currently supporting Lee’s decision to seek professional help and appeal to everyone to respect this decision.”

Lee’s arrest comes after ex girlfriend Jasmine Waltz insisted last week that the reason they broke up was because he cheated on her with a man.
