Vanessa Feltz received some much-needed moral support when she attended a UK screening of 80 For Brady in London on Monday night.
The TV presenter attended Soho’s Ham Yard Hotel following a very public split from fiance Ben Ofoedu after discovering he had cheated on multiple women during their relationship.
Arriving at the gala screening on Monday, Vanessa, 61, appeared to be in much more spirit as she mingled with her celebrity pals Claire Sweeney and Linda Robson.
The presenter, who previously claimed her “heart broke into a million pieces” after finding out about Ben’s infidelity, looked appropriately glam in a colorful floral print dress with distinctive tiered detailing.
Other guests on the night included professional dancer Abbie Quinnen, former Big Brother contestant Imogen Thomas, former Loose Women panelist Andrea McLean and recent Love Island star Ellie Spence.
They were in attendance to see an exclusive screening of 80 For Brady, a new American sports comedy produced by NFL legend Tom Brady and starring Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda, Rita Moreno and Sally Field.

Vanessa announced that she had split from her partner of 17 years amid claims that he had been unfaithful while touring UK holiday parks with his electronic music act, which she later confirmed.
The woman Ben reportedly went missing with first told MailOnline how he sent Vanessa an explosive email, followed by an “awkward” phone call, in which she denounced the “serial womanizer” from Ben.
Ben’s affair told Vanessa that she had been “hopelessly in love” with him after a series of passionate encounters in Ibiza and Thailand.
But she insisted that the BBC Radio 2 presenter deserved to know that her partner had tried to seduce at least three other younger women.
The successful businesswoman, who looks a lot like Vanessa, said she initially had no idea Ben had a long-term partner when she began her affair with him, and broke off the relationship as soon as she found out.

But beach club owner and restaurateur Ella, 59, who did not wish to use her real name, described him as “an octopus who has no respect for women” and said she wanted to set the record straight after he ” spread lies” about his year. -Long adventure.
After the email, Ella and Vanessa had a ‘difficult’ phone conversation during which Vanessa told her that what she and Ofoedu had done was ‘very wrong’.
In the email, Ella wrote to Vanessa: “I was aware of his relationship with you and I felt very guilty, but he haunted me so much that I couldn’t resist his charm.”
“I was terrified sending that email,” Ella said, “and even more terrified when Vanessa called me back.” I completely understood her anger at me and I certainly didn’t snap back at her, but it was a very awkward conversation.
Despite the revelations about Ben’s behavior in the email and phone call, Vanessa apparently decided to forgive him.
However, earlier this month, Vanessa announced that she had finally called it quits after a series of other illicit relationships surfaced.
She, a mother of one, remained silent for six years but only decided to speak out after she said Ben insulted her in his mea culpa interview last week, in which he described their relationship as “purely sexual with no feelings involved” and -most dismissively, that sex with her was ‘almost a chore’.
