BLUE singer Lee Ryan was horrified to wake up alone in Japan - after his bandmates had already boarded the plane back home.

The FLY BY singer panicked when he searched his Japan hotel looking for fellow band mates Duncan James, Simon Webbe and Antony Costa the morning after a drunken binge - only to discover they had returned to Britain without him.

Ryan says, "I woke up in Japan on the last tour after drinking a bottle of JACK DANIEL's by myself, thinking 'F***'.

"I walked round the hotel in my boxers, still p***ed, going to everyone's doors, and no one was in.

"I was like, 'They've left me. They've taken my bags and my passport and left me.'

"And they'd gone home to England... but the tour manager was there."
