In the wake of his cheating scandal, which led to his split from Vanessa Feltz last month, Ben Ofoedu has spoken on the difficulty of being “alone”. The Phats And Small singer, 50, split from Vanessa, 61, last month after 16 years together when she discovered he had cheated on her during the relationship.
Ben shared his struggles with loneliness while wearing a hoodie and cap as he lounged in his living room in the short video posted to his Instagram feed on Tuesday.
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.”
Meanwhile, Lizzie Cundy revealed she’s going to help out her heartbroken friend Vanessa following the presenter’s split from Ben.
The former footballer’s wife said she’s “got a few toy boys lined up” for the This Morning star after she discovered Ben’s infidelity.
“Vanessa needs to remember life can begin again, at any age,” Lizzie told Closer magazine.
Vanessa’s former fiancé claims he cheated on the TV star because she wouldn’t marry him.
Ben revealed he had sex with an older woman in Ibiza as he felt so insecure about the Big Brother star’s reluctance to walk down the aisle.
The Phats and Small star said: “Over a short period of time we had sex three times.
“It was purely sexual, there were no feelings involved. It felt like a chore.

“I just fell back into it with her to keep her sweet and everything under wraps.”
Reflecting on his infidelity, Ben explained to The Mirror: “I should have got some help after the first dalliance.
“I knew there was an insecurity. But I papered over the cracks and if you don’t tackle something it reared its head.
“I cheated because I was insecure.
“The girl in Ibiza said things like, ‘You’re such a great guy. I don’t know why you’re not married. Who wouldn’t want to marry you?’
“That coupled with alcohol was a recipe for disaster. It was a volatile situation. That’s why that happened.”
Ben also claimed since the split he has suffered constant online abuse from a stalker.
He reassured fans he is alright 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 a 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.
