He had been spotted hours before his arrest partying with his bandmate Duncan James and their friend, personal trainer Scott Ashley, at the launch of a new London cocktail bar.

After failing to provide a breath test to police, a search of the car was then conducted, allegedly revealing he was in possession of class A drugs, reported by The Sun to be cocaine.

The newspaper also claims that after being taken into custody, Lee urinated all over his prison cell, meaning he will now face criminal damage charges as well as charges for failing to produce a specimen.

A police spokesperson told The Sun: “Police stopped a car after officers witnessed it being driven erratically. The driver was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and taken into custody.

“He was subsequently further arrested on suspicion of possession of Class A drugs and criminal damage.”

Lee was bailed after 12 hours of custody, and is now due to face magistrates in Ealing on May 2.

His ex-girlfriend Jasmine Waltz, who he was embroiled in a love triangle with during ‘CBB’ in January, recently gave an interview following their split, saying Lee “needs to get help”, adding: “Everything about his life is bad.”

He is currently scheduled to perform live dates in Europe next week as part of Blue.
