Lee Ryan has been hitting out at Jim Davidson this weekend, claiming that the comedian’s win on Celebrity Big Brother earlier this month was clearly some sort of ‘fix.’
It seems the Blue star isn’t happy that Jim came out of the house seemingly smelling (mostly) of roses, while he managed to ruin what was left of his reputation and credibility. He more or less did a character assassination on himself.
The singer proved to be a total dirt-bird during his time on the reality TV show. Flitting between the beds and boobs of Jasmine Waltz and Casey Batchelor, making it seem like he really doesn’t care where he gets his bedroom action. We were left with the impression that the dad of one (that poor child) would shag anything that moves….perhaps even some things that don’t.
He emerged back into the real world and was horrified and shocked by the hate directed at him. Lee received death threats online (which even we think was a bit OTT…come on people, he’s not worth the energy) and countless abusive tweets from people calling him a scumbag, a love rat, a disgusting specimen and so, so much more.
Lee Ryan what a complete scumbag 😡 to think most men are like that aswell, easily could name a few !! Glad iv got a good un #CBB

However, Lee has now claimed he was the victim of bad editing, while Jim Davidson had his most controversial moments cut out.
He told The Daily Star that all this year’s housemates were shocked when the comedian won and he jibed that the older star must have had a ‘secret call centre in India’ full of people repeatedly voting for him to win.
The All Rise singer insisted that while Jim’s transgressions were played down, his were exaggerated for the world to see and continued:
“I wasn’t the only one with scandal in the house but fortunately for me they just focused on me more.”
Thankfully, Lee did seem to come to some sort of epiphany at the end and conceded that he most likely is a ‘bit of a tw*t.’
We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
Now could someone please take him off our TV screens and out of our press for a while.
We’d buy into the JFK and Hitler conspiracy theories before we’d be prepared to believe that he and Jasmine are making a real go of things and setting themselves up for a long and happy life together.
