Jasmine Waltz has discussed her ex-boyfriend Lee Ryan’s recent arrest for drink-driving, and subsequent announcement he was planning on checking into rehab.

Jasmine met the Blue singer earlier this year in the ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ house, during which time they were involved in a love triangle with fellow housemate Casey Batchelor.

After their eviction from the house, the pair briefly dated, even taking a holiday to Thailand together, though things apparently weren’t as rosy as they seemed (and that’s saying something…).

Jasmine has now revealed that, during their relationship, she thought Lee needed professional help dealing with his issues, telling new! magazine: “He needed to get help, that was very apparent. All the mood swings, the heavy drinking - he wasn't in a very good place at all.”

The actress also described an incident while they were on holiday together in Thailand, where Lee was allegedly so drunk that he wandered off, leaving her on her own.

She explained: “He left me downtown by myself with no phone and no money. He just walked away because he was drunk.

“That was one of the scariest moments of my life. I had no idea where I was. He'd pass out on the sidewalk.”

This isn’t the first time Jasmine has hit out at Lee in an interview following their split, as she’s previously described him as a “damaged soul, with no money or career”, adding: “Everything about his life is bad.”

It’s been reported that Lee will check into rehab when he is finished touring Europe with the rest of Blue.

He gave an interview following his arrest, telling the Daily Star: "I can see that my ­actions were irresponsible and that I put myself and others in danger. For that I am truly sorry."
