Vanessa Feltz gave an update on how she was feeling post-split from her fiancé of sixteen years Ben Ofoedu.

Dressed in a black and red patterned top, the This Morning star sipped on a drink at Brasssie of Light as she admitted: "It isn't easy," and she "can't sleep" at night.

The 60-year-old TV star, who shares daughters Allegra and Saskia with her ex-husband Michael Kurer, got engaged to Ben in December 2006, but they split before they exchanged vows.

She confirmed their separation on Instagram, telling her followers that "once the trust in a relationship is gone then you can't really get it back." And in an interview with The Mirror, Vanessa's ex confirmed how he'd been unfaithful to the presenter.

"I'm sorry for all the pain caused to Vanessa, to her family, to mine. We had an amazing 16 years. It wasn't perfect, but it was amazing. I truly love her. She's the love of my life," the 50-year-old said.

Vanessa also hinted that their age gap had a part to play in the breakdown of their relationship. "Don’t let anyone tell you that the age gap doesn’t matter," she explained to The Sunday Times in January. 

"It’s bloody annoying and it gets worse, especially as our relationship coincided with acres of menopause, which started on my very first day presenting the Radio 2 breakfast show in 2011 with a massive hot flush at 4am and is still going on."
