Lee Ryan was mortified to stall his sports car just before driving it up the red carpet last night (15.04.10).

The Blue singer arrived at the premiere of British gangster movie 'The Heavy' - in which he makes his acting debut - at London's Leicester Square in an expensive TVR car, only to confess he "panicked" behind the wheel of the vehicle.

He told BANG Showbiz: "I got given the car to drive up because there's an amazing TVR in the film... I was meant to get in the car and be driven but I was like, 'I wanna drive it.' But I've got a confession to make - up the road I stalled it.

"It was in the middle of the road and I had five buses coming towards me and I was panicking. I was just like, 'Oh no, I'm working the TVR and I just stalled it.' No one wants to see that!"

Lee - who stars in the movie alongside Vinnie Jones, Christopher Lee, Sadie Frost and Gary Stretch - admits he has caught the acting bug and wants to make more movies.

He said: "I've got lots of stuff coming up and this won't be the last time you'll see me on the big screen. I absolutely loved doing this film. I love being a part of it... this is something that I am definitely going to pursue."

The 26-year-old British star has already got a number of acting roles in the pipeline - including one with Sienna Miller.

He said: "I've got a few film roles that I've already been offered. I've got a film called 'Timeless' coming out. I've heard Kevin Spacey might be joining it - but don't say anything. I wasn't meant to say that. I know Sienna Miller is attached to it... very hot. It's going to be fantastic."
