Ryan not up for reality romance

Lee Ryan has said he is looking for love, but definitely doesn't plan to find it on a reality TV show.

The Blue singer is expected to be one of this year's Celebrity Big Brother contestants and before he was revealed to be going into the house, told The Sun he'd never be seen romancing anyone on TV.

He said: "I'd never snog anyone on live TV. My kids would be watching. I find that really distasteful. I couldn't kiss anyone when I know my kids are sitting in front of the TV, going, 'Hi Daddy!'.

"It's more than public, isn't it? It's not like kissing in Sainsbury's. It's kissing in front of millions of people, with a microphone on so you can hear all the slobbering."

But Lee said that despite wanting to keep things private, he was looking for someone to settle down with.

He said: "I am ready to find a girlfriend. I said that on Twitter the other day and suddenly I had 5,000 extra followers, saying, 'I'll be your girlfriend'.

"I've been working out hard. I've been on this hardcore diet and I want to get really buff.

"I've been in this business for 14 years so I've been around the block a few times. I haven't been a nun, but it would be nice to find someone to settle down with."
