Lee Ryan's mum: my son's antics on Celebrity Big Brother made me cry

Pop star Lee Ryan's mother has admitted that seeing her son on Celebrity Big Brother left her tearful and embarrassed.

Sheila Ryan told Reveal magazine that the Channel 5 show had "gone too far".

Asked about the task where the former Blue singer was told to behave in an x-rated manner, she said: "I couldn't bear it. I turned it off, put my head under the covers and cried my eyes out."

Mrs Ryan, who owns her own hairdressing salon, said: "I went into work the next day and couldn't stop crying, it was awful."

She added: "Lee loves to cook, so I'd rather see him in the kitchen than the pole-dancing club."

Asked whether she felt embarrassed watching her son and his x-rated antics, she replied: "Not usually, but in this particular programme, absolutely yes."
