Vanessa Feltz, the renowned radio host, turned heads at the London Lifestyle Awards on Monday night with her stunning appearance. Displaying her impressive two-stone weight loss, the 61-year-old looked stunning in a floor-length black gown adorned with exquisite gold detailing. The sleeveless dress featured a plunging neckline, which was tastefully covered by a delicate black mesh.
Despite her previous heartbreak, Vanessa's radiant smile exuded confidence as she proudly flaunted her trim figure. She attributed her dramatic weight loss to her "heartbreak diet," explaining that the emotional turmoil following her split from singer Ben Ofoedu has affected her appetite.
In an interview with Closer magazine earlier this year, Vanessa candidly revealed the cause of her separation from Ben after more than sixteen years together—his infidelity. However, despite the difficult times she has endured, Vanessa remains optimistic, stating that she expects to regain her appetite once she has healed emotionally.
Vanessa initially encountered Ben in 2005 at OK!'s Christmas party through a mutual friend named Keith. After planning to tie the knot the following year, the couple repeatedly postponed their wedding before ultimately deciding it was not meant to be.
Prior to her relationship with Ben, Vanessa was married to Michael Kruer, a surgeon, from 1983 to 2000. She also revealed that she had discovered his infidelity during their marriage. From this union, Vanessa is the mother of two daughters and a proud grandmother to four grandchildren.
The London Lifestyle Awards serve as an annual celebration of everything the city has to offer. The grand red-carpet gala dinner is attended by London's esteemed personalities. In attendance alongside Vanessa was Lizzie Cundy, who stunned fans with her flexibility, striking Victoria Beckham's iconic leg pose. Lizzie, dressed as a red devil, sported thigh-high red boots and a devil horn headband.
Other notable attendees included Nana Akua, who looked breathtaking in a floor-length, silver-striped gown, and Jason Gale, the founder of the awards, who looked dapper in a tuxedo. Among the guests were also model Danielle Mason, TV presenter Hayley Sparkes, and Britain's Got Talent alum Francine Lewis, who stood out in a stylish pink silk dress.
Vanessa Feltz's remarkable weight loss and self-assured presence at the London Lifestyle Awards showcase her determination to move forward after her difficult split from Ben Ofoedu. As she continues to embrace her newfound confidence, Vanessa inspires others to face challenges head-on and find resilience.
