Emotional Vanessa Feltz fights back tears as she breaks silence on Ben Ofoedu split
Vanessa Feltz has taken to Instagram to address her split from fiance Ben Ofoedu.
Sat on a lavish looking pink sofa, a visibly emotional Vanessa, 60, told her fans why she's been so quiet on social media of late, as she confirmed the break-up.
"Well I haven't been on Instagram for three weeks and that's because my relationship with Ben is over after 16 years," the This Morning star began.
"I honestly didn't know what to say on Instagram but now it's clear that it's over and I really do feel that once the trust is a relationship is gone, you can't really get it back.
"And so I just wanted to say that obviously I feel incredibly sad and I am pretty disappointed and shocked and all those horrible things but also full of resolve. I am not going to let this defeat me."
Vanessa went on: "I'm so glad to be living longer than my mum did. She died at 57 and, if the Lord spares me, I'm going to be 61 next month. So, I'm very, very grateful to be alive and I want to carry on feeling that way and I want to celebrate.
"I want to find fun and laughter anywhere I can and I know it's not going to be easy, but I'm absolutely determined to do it."
The star further thanked people for their messages of support and shared her appreciation.
Vanessa's fans have since flocked to the comments section of her heartbreaking video as they voiced their support for the 60 year old.
"We love and support you always," penned one of Vanessa's 239,000 followers.
"So sorry Vanessa," added someone else, as a third echoed similar sentiments, writing: "So very sorry Vanessa. New beginnings now darling".
"you got this," they went on. "sending you all my love".
Another doting fan continued: "I'm so sorry Vanessa. You are a beautiful lady who deserves only the best in life".
Vanessa's celebrity pals have also weighed in, with her This Morning co-star Holly Willoughby penning: "We simply love you to bits… " followed by a string of heart emojis.
"feel the love that surrounds you always wonderful V," added Zoe Ball, while Mrs Hinch commented with several hearts.
"We love and support you always Mumm," added her daughter, Allegra, who was recently rushed to hospital with the flu.
Ben, 50, is yet to speak out on their split.
