BLUE star Duncan James has quit his playboy lifestyle in favour of settling down with his girlfriend.

The ALL RISE hunk is determined to remain faithful to sexy ANYA LAHIRI, but insists his ladies' man reputation was greatly exaggerated by the press.

He says, "Yes I had a couple of casual relationships with a few celebrities. I'm talking about three over the last three years.

"But it wasn't like I was going around sleeping with everything in sight because I'm not like that. I value myself more as a person and morally I don't want to bring myself down to that level."
