Lee Ryan charged with assault after allegedly punching fiancée

Lee Ryan has been charged with assault after he allegedly punched his fiancée in the face yesterday.

The Blue singer is accused of striking Samantha Miller, 25, as they drove through the West End.

Officers later arrested Lee, 27, at his home in Bromley, south London.

He strenuously denies the allegations.

‘Lee 100% denies common assault,’ his spokesman tells The Sun. ‘He’ll be fighting these charges.’

Lee is due at a court in Westminster next week.

He and Samantha – who met on MySpace in 2006 – are parents to Rayn, 1.
