Lee Ryan

Lee Ryan has revealed he was taking sleeping pulls every night while locked up in the Big Brother house. 

The singer, 30, admitted that he was addicted to the medication and nearly suffered a breakdown on the reality show.

‘I was on sleeping pills every night,’ he confessed. ‘I was addicted to them. The pressures of the house got to the point that I’d break down in the (diary) room, saying: ‘I need a psychiatrist because I feel like I’m going to smash up this whole place.’

Lee was the sixth person to be evicted from the show, which saw Jim Davidson crowed the winner.
