Vanessa Feltz says ‘heart stopped pumping’ after shock split from Ben Ofoedu: ‘I’m very sad’


Vanessa Feltz has opened up about the shock of the breakdown of her relationship with former fiancé Ben Ofoedu.

The radio and TV star discussed the matter on her TalkTV show, where she said she felt that blood stopped pumping around her body due to her heartbreak.

“People who have been reading about my private life over the weekend will know that my 16-year relationship has come to an end,” the 60 year old shared after the news of their split broke on Saturday.

"I have said, I'm very sad. I'm very shocked, but I am going to soldier forth. I hope to rise like a phoenix from the ashes and all of that."

Speaking about her heartbreak, Vanessa went on: “Meanwhile, I'm feeling that brokenhearted thing, you know where your heart hurts.

"You know, you feel as if you know the blood's kind of stopping pumping halfway round.

"Then you kind of take a bit of a breath and shake a little bit, then it starts pumping again."

Later on in the show, Vanessa thanked her celebrity pals for their support.

It hasn’t been confirmed why Vanessa and Ben, 50, have split, but there’s been speculation that Ben was unfaithful.

Adding fuel to the fire, in a video shared to Instagram by Vanessa, the This Morning star spoke about trust being broken.

"Well I haven't been on Instagram for three weeks and that's because my relationship with Ben is over after 16 years,” she 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 in 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."

While Vanessa is undeniably devastated by her split, she put on a smiley display earlier today, Monday 6 February, as she flashed a thumbs up at the cameras.

Vanessa was seen sporting a very Wednesday Addams-esque outfit consisting of a black dress with a white lace collar.

Her signature blonde tresses blew in the wind as the resilient star wore sunglasses and gave a thumbs up to the photographer while giving a big smile.

Vanessa completed her ensemble with black boots featuring a gold buckle and a printed tote bag.
