Vanessa Feltz is seething with the Celebs Go Dating gurus after ending herself on a date with a man who resembles ex Ben Ofoedu.
After feeling ‘triggered’ on her date with singer Bilal, the 61-year-old told Paul C. Brunson what she thought.
Vanessa’s voice over said she felt ‘trapped’ when she was removed from the date since the agents believed she was shutting herself off.
Vanessa claimed Bilal reminded her too much of Ben, 51, with whom she divorced earlier this year following an infidelity scandal.
Vanessa was ‘heartbroken’ when she arrived to the agency, according to expert Anna Williamson.
However, the most recent brunch meeting concluded with the presenter sharing her unvarnished ideas with Paul, something the expert did not enjoy.
‘Well, it’s not for me is it. It’s an identikit of the relationship that I’ve just come out of,’ Vanessa began explaining.
This was her fourth date on the Channel 4 show, which was part of a group dating event on the August 31 broadcast.
The furious presenter continued: ‘So this is a gentleman, charming, handsome, who is in a band, who tours. The last thing I want is some itinerant horny musician. I’ve had that.’
Anna answered that she sounded “closed off,” to which Vanessa agreed “100%.”
This is when the TalkTV anchor became enraged, defending her statement, which she did not want to “be corrected on.”

Paul tried to ease her anger saying they weren’t there to ‘go back on feelings’ but to help her and ‘dissect’.
Vanessa responded: ‘Well, it’s not that hard to dissect, I’ve explained it to you clearly. You should understand me the first time I say it because i’ve said it with the utmost clarity.’
Paul called her out and stated she was ‘coming for’ him, forcing them to argue and Vanessa to stress that she had expressed everything properly.
The fight raged on as the agent refused to let Vanessa off the hook for how she handled him, claiming she had’shot him down’ and treated him the same way she abused Bilal.
Fans were divided, with some praising Vanessa’s behaviour, claiming that she had “every right to be upset.”
‘They absolutely knew Vanessa would kick off. She’s genuinely upset,’ wrote one on Twitter (X).
Another viewer said: ‘Vanessa’s got every right to be angry, it’s like putting someone with ptsd in front of the same event that causes it them. I’d be fuming at them they’re meant to be experts!’
One disagreed, writing: ‘However valid her reasons or excuses are Vanessa is just downright rude!’
‘Vanessa making it sound like going to this guys gig with friends and family would be a hostage situation has KILLED ME OFF,’ aded another.
