Celebs Go Dating viewers SLAM ‘arrogant and awful’ Vanessa Feltz after her furious outburst and demand she’s ‘chucked off’ the show
The TV personality, 61, was left fuming after being set up on a blind date with musician Jerome who reminded her cheating ex Ben Ofoedu.
Seeing her struggle Paul took Vanessa to one side for a pep talk, only to be faced with a tirade from the former chat show host.
‘This is an identikit of the relationship that I’ve just come out of,’ Vanessa began.
‘So this is a gentleman, charming, handsome, who is in a band. Who tours, so that’s the last thing I want is some itinerant, horny musician. I’ve had that’.
After being told she was ‘closed off’ Vanessa snapped: ‘I am, and I don’t wish to be corrected on that’.
Paul said: ‘But we’re not here to convince you to go back on your feelings. We’re just trying to dissect what we heard’.
Staring him straight in the eye Vanessa replied: ‘ Well it’s not hard to dissect as I’ve explained it clearly to you,’.
‘You should understand me the first time I say it, because I’ve said it with the utmost clarity’.
Paul tried in vain to calm Vanessa as the Talk TV star refused to see his point of view and spoke over him.
Taking to Twitter one viewer said: ‘God, Vanessa’s just plain rude to anyone and everyone!’.
While a second said: ‘Vanessa going after Paul, she is so effin arrogant’.
Someone else demanded: ‘Chuck her out the agency’.
A fourth wrote: ‘Wow Vanessa even pissing off the experts’.
And: ‘Oh shush Vanessa, let Paul get a word in!’.
But others believed she was still struggling to get over her relationship with Ben and had signed up to the show too quickly.
‘Vanessa wasn’t ready to date so she shouldn’t have joined the show. But She’s desperate to be in a relationship’.
A second agreed: ‘Vanessa is far too recently damaged to even be entertaining going on this show. she needs to step back and heal’.
Vanessa called it quits with Ben in January amid claims he had been unfaithful and exchanged ‘sex texts’ with another woman, which he later confirmed.
