Blue boyband star Lee Ryan always chooses women with a colourful sexual history - because virgins are "too much like hard work".

The ALL RISE singer insists experienced lovers make love-making more exciting.

He enthuses, "I don't mind if a woman's got a bit of history. I'd never judge her on that. Besides, virgins are too much like hard work."

The easy-going hitmaker doesn't even mind if his conquests want to reveal all about their nights of passion with him.

Laid-back Lee adds, "Good luck to them. I don't mind because the girls usually say I was good.

"One even said I was better than LEONARDO DiCAPRIO. How could I complain about that? I'm bloody brilliant, me."
