BLUE star Lee Ryan managed to smash his $95,000 (GBP60,000) PORSCHE while on a driving lesson.

The teen heart-throb is the proud owner of a convertible 911 CARRERA COUPE but, while being taught the skills of the driving, he ploughed into the back of another car and crushed his own bonnet and bumper.

The unlucky FLY BY hitmaker grumbled, "I was on a lesson with a pal in North London when I was distracted by the police struggling with someone in the street."
