Inside Vanessa Feltz’s incredible 50th birthday celebration for fiancé Ben Ofoedu with rarely-seen siblings and jazz | The Sun

VANESSA Feltz’s fiancé Ben Ofoedu has shared how he spent his 50th birthday in June, and the thoughtful plan Vanessa had in place for the landmark day.

Singer Ben, 50, and TV star Vanessa, 60, have been engaged for over 16 years, and it was once revealed that Vanessa will leave a trail of vegetables around her house for Ben to follow, to keep the spark alive.

However, for Ben’s birthday Vanessa kept things more simple and opted to take him out for a celebratory dinner.

In an exclusive chat with The Sun at the British Lifestyle Awards, Ben told us: “Vanessa was amazing. She organised this incredible dinner and took me, my brothers and my sisters out to enjoy it.

“Then, the next day we all went to the London Cabaret Club for something called Throwback Thursdays, and we all got on stage which was really, really good. Dane Bowers came along too and we performed.”

Ben explained that they enjoyed dinner, drinks and music at the iconic jazz club, as his 50th celebrations continued, and said he’ll be performing there more often.

Ben also told us he’s looking to become an ‘agony uncle,’ and follow in the footsteps of his agony aunt fiancée Vanessa.

He said: “I’m really working on becoming an agony uncle, I think there’s definitely a slot for it. There aren’t many men you can relate to in that respect and Vanessa thinks it’s a good idea so my heart is in that, to build on that.”
