Vanessa Feltz urged This Morning viewers to reach out to her about the best ways to get over heartbreak following her split from Ben Ofoedu.
The TV personality, 60, confirmed last weekend that she had broken up with her fiancé, 50, after a 16-year romance and confessed she is ‘shocked, sad and disappointed’.
Their relationship was recently hit by infidelity claims, with Vanessa allegedly discovering social media posts between Ben and other women.
Speaking on Wednesday’s This Morning, Vanessa admitted that she felt “terribly humiliated” as soon as the news came to light.
“I’ve had millions of messages from people going through it, it’s really awful,” she told co-stars Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.
“I can’t sleep at all, so reading thousands of messages on Instagram is something to do at night.”

Vanessa – who can be seen regularly on the ITV daytime show – later encouraged fans at home to call to share how they coped with heartbreak.
“Help me,” she joked.
She turned to Holly and Phillip and added, ‘Can I say that? I would take any advice I can get from anyone. If anyone wants it from me… damn, I can hand it out no problem.

“But if you have things you want to tell me, I’d be very grateful to receive it, because I really feel like I’m in the eye of the storm right now.” I’m not ready to look back on it yet, I’m in the middle of it.’
In an Instagram video — shared on Sunday — Vanessa shared an honest and vulnerable update with her followers, admitting she was “incredibly sad,” “quite disappointed and shocked.”
Meanwhile, Ben has been silent on the matter, before taking to Instagram himself on Monday, where he finally appeared to address the breakup.
Contrary to Vanessa’s lengthy post, Ben just posted a cartoon image of a broken heart on his Instagram stories.
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
