Blue’s Simon Talks About Lee Ryan Turmoils

Schooly of Capital FM in London got star Simon Webbe on the phone from Prague and asked him what was really going on with the group, including bandmate Lee Ryan’s recent DUI arrest. Asked how the incident is affecting the group, Simon said, “As a group it doesn’t affect us because we are friends. Lee has made a mistake and he is very sorry about what happened. He’s not proud of it, and we stressed it on stage. He publicly apologized in front of 20,000 people and said he didn’t want people to look at him as a bad example, because he isn’t.” Webbe also denied a report that Ryan was leaving the group after the tour wraps up. “That is also false,” he insisted. “This has probably come about because – to some people in the media – we’ve been around for too long now. Not many bands of our nature last as long as we have. We’re into our third album, but we haven’t reached our limit yet. People think that because Lee is the youngest in group, he’s a loose cannon. He isn’t, he’s got a good heart, and Blue are 100% here to stay!” The entire interview audio at has since been removed.
