Lee Ryan shot to fame in the early 2000s as a member of the hit boyband Blue, alongside Simon Webbe, Duncan James and Antony Costa.
The band, who have sold over 14 million records worldwide, split in 2005 in a bid to launch solo careers, and Lee, 39, went on to become a regular on reality TV shows, including Celebrity Big Brother and Hell's Kitchen.
Over the years he's became a household name and enjoyed a lengthy career in the spotlight. Most recently he and his fellow band members announced that they are planning to release their sixth studio album, titled Heart & Soul.
Let's take a look into Lee's life now, including his recent marriage and shock arrest…
Lee boasts a colourful dating history with the singer previously dating the likes of Atomic Kitten's Liz McClarnon and Jasmine Waltz.
However, he's now settled down with The X Factor star Verity Paris, 31, with the duo secretly jetting off to Gibraltar earlier this year to tie the knot.
Lee announced his and Verity's happy news and couldn't help but gush over his new wife, saying: "I met someone finally who loves and supports me in everything I do.
"Verity is a beautiful, strong and loving woman who I treasure, and I’m a lucky man to have such a wonderful mother for my child, and now wife in her."
"I’ve never been more calm and grounded and I have Verity to thank for that," the star went on to The Sun. "I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life because of the wonderful family life I now have."
He and Verity, who starred on The X Factor in 2009, are parents to a one year old baby daughter, who was reportedly born in June 2021.
It was previously reported that Lee had moved to Spain with his now-wife Verity, with the couple and their baby daughter jetting off abroad last year.
Lee is also dad to daughter Bluebell, 15, who he shares with ex-girlfriend Jessica Keevil, and son Rayn, 13, who he shares with former fiancée Samantha Millar.
He amicably co-parents both of this teenage children with his ex-partners, and has previously shared numerous sweet snaps alongside his daughter on social media.
As well as being a father-of-three and a doting husband, Lee has also reunited with his Blue bandmates over recent years with the foursome scheduled to release their sixth album in September.
Blue reformed in November 2021 and confirmed they would be heading on an arena tour to celebrate their 20th anniversary, before going on to announce details about their new music.
In April, they revealed that their new album Heart & Soul is set to be released on 9 September, and the following month they unveiled the track listing for the album on social media and the first single, Haven't Found You Yet.
However, it's not only Lee's music career and relationship status that has been hitting the headlines in recent months, as the dad-of-three was reportedly arrested after he had an explosive outburst on a flight to London from Glasgow on 31 July.
He is said to have kicked off during a flight into London City Airport after the cabin crew refused to serve him alcohol.
Lee went on to have a foul-mouthed rant on the British Airways plane whilst refusing to return to his seat, and “turned the air blue”, passengers have stated.
The Blue singer’s disruptive behaviour was thought to have occurred for 20 minutes mid-flight and led to him being arrested for suspicion of public order offences.
The Met Office confirmed an arrest following the Sunday flight. They told The Mirror: “At around 1640hrs on Sunday, 31 July, officers met a flight that had arrived at London City Airport from Glasgow.
"A 39-year-old man was arrested for a public order offence. He was taken into custody at an east London police station and was released under investigation the following day."
