Lee spent five years playing kind-hearted nurse Ben 'Lofty' Chiltern, first in Casualty and then in Holby City, but he in 2019.
The following year, it was revealed that Lee was living off his savings in lockdown after not earning a penny.
At the time, the performer shared: “It’s been a tough year financially, as everything was pulled, including a tour, cruises and corporate work, so I’ve literally had no financial income all year and I’ve pretty much lived off savings.
"I’ve really missed being on stage too, so there have been some low periods."
He added: "It’s been very stressful, I’m not going to lie, but my family and my partner Izzy have been an amazing support.
"They’ve picked me up and helped me through it. I don’t want to sound ungrateful, because we’re healthy and safe and I’ve managed to keep my home.
"I’ve got friends in a less fortunate position that haven’t had savings and have lost everything and are living back with their parents," the stage star shared.
"And the positive has been that I’ve got to spend lots of time together with Izzy, my daughter Betsy and my stepson Alfie, so I feel very lucky."
