BLUE star Anthony Costa has been barred for life from a pub following a drunken rampage.

The British singer, 22, reportedly threatened to beat up two men and shocked onlookers with a foul-mouthed rant which resulted in his life-long ban from the venue. Costa - who recently split with pregnant girlfriend LUCY BOLSTER - also attempted to seduce barmaids, according to Britain's SUNDAY STAR tabloid.

A source close to the ALL RISE band says, "Since Anthony split with eight-month pregnant Lucy at the end of December (03), he has really hit the town and partied hard.

"Blue have already got a reputation for being wild, thanks to Lee Ryan.

"Now Anthony seems to be going down the same road and he's causing a lot of worry."
