Holly Willoughby and Mrs Hinch send support to Vanessa Feltz amid Ben Ofoedu split

Holly Willoughby and Mrs Hinch have both sent Vanessa Feltz messages of support after the presenter opened up about her break up with fiancé, Ben Ofoedu.

In a video posted to Instagram, Vanessa, 60, explained that her three-week break from social media, was due to her split from Ben and she told fans she is "incredibly sad."

Before their break up, Vanessa and Ben had been together for 16 years and were engaged.

Beginning her video, the 60 year old said: "Well, I haven't been on Instagram for three weeks and that's because my relationship with Ben is over after 16 years and honestly I didn't know what to say to you on Instagram.

"But now it's clear that it's over I really do feel that once the trust in a relationship is gone you can't really get it back and that's what I would tell anyone else to do.

"So I just wanted to say that although I feel incredibly sad and I'm pretty disappointed and shocked and all those horrible things but also full of resolve because I'm not going to let this defeat me."

Vanessa went on to say she was 'glad' to be living longer than her mum and that she feels 'very grateful'.

"I'm so glad to be living longer than my mum, she died at 57 and if the lord spares me I'm going to be 61 next month. I feel very, very grateful to be alive," she said.

"I want to carry on feeling that way and I want to celebrate and find fun and laughter wherever I can.

"I know it's not going to be easy but I'm determined to do it and thank you all very much for the wonderful, wonderful good wishes you've been sending me. I really appreciate it."

Vanessa's This Morning co-star Holly and Mrs Hinch were among the first celebs to comfort Vanessa and offer her some words of support.

Holly commented beneath Vanessa's post: "We simply love you to bits… [three heart emojis]"

And cleaning guru, Mrs Hinch posted a series of heart emojis. Meanwhile, radio presenter Zoe Ball wrote: "feel the love that surrounds you always wonderful V. [heart emoji]"

And Myleene Klass mirrored Mrs Hinch by leaving a heart emoji.

On the same day that Vanessa uploaded her emotional video, she was seen attending the screening of "Epic Tails" at Vue Leicester Square in London. 

She was comforted by actress Claire Sweeney on the red carpet.

In an interview with The Sun, Vanessa discussed the breakdown of her relationship and said: "I had thought it might take a bit longer before this came out, because it’s a lot to deal with — a shock like this takes some adjusting to — but I am extremely sad and disappointed that my 16-year relationship with Ben is over.

"Who knew I’d be single at 60? However, ladies, it’s onwards and upwards and I firmly believe that the best is yet to come. I hear that Kylie Minogue is single again, so I’m in good company — if she wants to hit the town, hook me up.”
