Vanessa Feltz's cheating ex Ben Ofoedu makes plea to win star back
‘I love her so much’: Vanessa Feltz’s cheating ex Ben Ofoedu makes plea to win her back on live TV as regretful star admits to ‘really stupid mistake’
Ben Ofoedu has made a plea to win his ex-fiancee Vanessa Feltz back, after they split when she discovered he had cheated on her during their 16-year relationship.
The regretful Phats And Small singer, 50, announced his hopes to reconcile with the heartbroken star, 61, during a Sunday morning appearance on GB News.
Setting the record straight, he said: ‘We were in love for 17 years, so yeah I would love to be back in that situation because I love her so much.
He told presenter Mark Dolan: ‘Vanessa and I parted ways. I mean, I’ve been pretty honest about it, really. All it was, I’d had an affair before which put our relationship on quite dodgy ground, but we’d got over it really and that was like 2015.
‘There’s also a case that’s happening with the Metropolitan Police now, linked to a troll. I was sex texting this troll that I did not know was a troll and stuff, it was just sex texting.

‘The whole thing about me having numerous amounts of affairs, and going to holiday camps and sleeping with these different women, and that I’d had several affairs is just not true.
‘And it’s horrible, I’ve been getting trolled by practically what seemed like the whole of Great Britain for the last three to four weeks and probably a couple of months, and it’s been really, really tough.
‘I’ve been completely honest about it. I think it’s important to kind of own up and say, “Look, I was wrong,” and stuff like that.
‘The original affair in Ibiza was with a woman who had to change her name because she’s embarrassed about it, because she knows that what even what she said in the papers was a complete lie.
‘She just lied about absolutely everything. But it’s done. It was 2015.
‘It was a 17 year relationship. Vanessa believes, I don’t necessarily believe it, that once the trust is gone, then it’s completely gone. So I mean, once the trust is gone, she couldn’t go on.
‘It’s just this really, really stupid mistake. I don’t even know, I mean there are different reasons but it was a stupid mistake.’
And while the TalkTV presenter has been very vocal about their split on her socials, Ben doesn’t feel her actions have been unjustified.
Fingers crossed! The regretful Phats And Small singer, 50, announced his hopes to reconcile with the heartbroken star, 61, during a Sunday morning appearance on GB News
Opening up: Setting the record straight, he said: ‘We were in love for 17 years, so yeah I would love to be back in that situation because I love her so much’
He said: ‘I don’t think I’ve been harshly treated by Vanessa, because I brought this to her doorstep and the family that I love so much.
‘We were in love for 17 years, so yeah I would love to be back in that situation because I love her so much. But there are a few things I would like to change, but that would be between me and her to work out but yeah, I would love to be back in that situation.
‘I just want to set the record straight, it’s not several women. I’m not a serial cheater. I don’t go to holiday camps and just cheat. That’s not the truth, but I think it kind of made a great narrative that the love rat, the love cheat.’
Ben recently admitted he is struggling to be alone in the wake of his cheating scandal, which led to his split from Vanessa last month.
The hitmaker confessed ‘this alone thing is hard’ while wearing a hoody and cap as he lounged in his living room in the short video posted to his Instagram feed.
He adjusted his cap and thoughtfully stroked his chin as he nodded along to Alone by Burna Boy, while reflecting on his break-up.
The singer also posted an emotional snap to his story in which he appeared teary-eyed.

He wrote in the caption of his post: ‘This alone thing is hard.
‘Beautiful song just got me thinking!! Have a blessed day. God’s love be with you.’
It comes after Ben took to his Instagram on Monday to reveal he has suffered constant online abuse from a stalker.
He reassured fans he is OK after telling them he had been forced to contact the Metropolitan Police over the harassment.
He wrote in an initial post: ‘Danger! [A stalker] is contacting my followers and spreading lies. She’s dangerous and has history of this.
He then posted a video saying: ‘People are asking me if I am ok. I’m definitely ok. No problem at all.’
Last week broadcaster Vanessa admitted life ‘isn’t easy’ after the split.
The star shared a video to Instagram on Monday where she revealed she ‘can’t sleep in the middle of the night’ but hopes it will get better.

While enjoying dinner at the Brasserie Of Light restaurant within London’s Selfridges, she was asked by a friend, ‘Vanessa, you’re looking great but how do you really feel?’
After pulling an emotional expression, she replied: ‘Well, no one said it was going to be easy and I must say it isn’t easy actually, especially in the middle of the night when I can’t sleep and all of that.
‘But I’m keeping on, keeping on and I’ve got lots and lots of friends and family around me and I’m really loving that.
‘Everyday I suppose I hope it’s going to get a little bit easier but thank you for asking.’
Ben admitted he had cheated on his partner while on a tour of UK holiday parks with his electronic dance music act.
Last month Vanessa announced she had finally dumped Ben after a series of other illicit relationships emerged.
