Vanessa was spotted being wined and dined by Stefan, who is 'the most swiped man on Tinder', in March.

The love coach treated her to a three course meal at Sheesh in London's Mayfair and they were said to have chatted 'for hours and hours'.

But an insider has now revealed to The Sun that any hint of romance sizzled out very rapidly.

The source said: “Stefan has been telling friends there’s nothing between him and Vanessa and that it was over before it begun.

"He was a good distraction for her following her split from Ben, but they’re better off as friends.”

The Sun has contacted Vanessa's rep for comment.

Vanessa split with her fiancé Ben Ofoedu in early 2023 after he cheated on her multiple times.

Despite being initially apologetic, Ben is reportedly now engaged to Precious Muir - who is 17 years his junior and starred in reality TV programme The Circle - and has changed his tune.In February, the Phats & Small star told the Daily Mail: "I wasn't very clever with my last relationship. I didn't look at where the person was, and love was blinding me."

He added: "I gave myself to someone for a quarter of my life and ultimately I got nothing from it… it's absolutely heartbreaking."

Vanessa, meanwhile, has thrown herself into finding love again and even took part in Celebs Go Dating last year.

Unfortunately, she did not meet her match.

Vanessa, who was with Ben for 17 years, even launched a blistering attack on the Celebs Go Dating agents after being "triggered" by her ex.

She accused Paul C. Brunson and Anna Williamson of matching her with an "identikit of a relationship" she had just come out of.

Vanessa Feltz's past heartache

Despite being an expert agony aunt to others, Vanessa has suffered her own heartache over the years

Vanessa Feltz has experienced double heartbreak in her 62 years.

In 1983, Vanessa married orthopaedic surgeon Michael Kurer. They had two daughters together, Saskia and Allegra, and all seemed perfect.

But 17 years after they had tied the knot, Michael suddenly walked out on Vanessa and the girls.

Initially, Vanessa was not given an explanation, however she later learned he had been cheating on her with multiple women.

Vanessa has since admitted in the How To Fail podcast that she clung to the wheel of Michael's car in an effort to stop him driving away.

"I don't need to give you all of the details, but effectively I put my arms around the wheels of the car and said, 'Please don't drive away, please don't leave us'," she recalled.

Vanessa was heartbroken, but managed to find love again six years later with musician Ben Ofoedu.

The couple quickly got engaged, although Vanessa put the brakes on when it came to actually tying the knot.

She later admitted the pain of her first marriage split had held her back.

Vanessa said: “The marriage seemed to be so disposable - it could just be chucked down the toilet in 10 seconds flat, even though I didn’t want it to be and I didn’t realise there was any trouble with it or problems.

"So it made me feel a bit damaged and reluctant to ever do it again."

Vanessa and Ben were in a relationship for 17 years before heartbreak did sadly hit again.

In February 2023, Vanessa confirmed it was all over. She kicked the Phats & Small star out after discovering he had also been unfaithful to her.

Vanessa has since tried - and failed - to find Mr Right on TV show Celebs Go Dating.

Ben, meanwhile, is engaged to The Circle's Precious Muir after a whirlwind romance. 

Vanessa was first linked to Stefan-Pierre after being pictured with him on the red carpet at several events, including the TV premiere of The Red King, in March.

Stefan-Pierre had found fame in 2017 after receiving 14,600 right-swipes on Tinder, earning him the title of Mr Tinder.

But Vanessa did not meet him on the dating site. They were said to have hit it off after being introduced at a showbiz party.

In October last year, Stefan-Pierre had claimed to have already found Miss Right. He fell for NHS nurse Leanne Noakes, 32, while attending his local hospital.

Stefan-Pierre said at the time: “We met while I was being treated for a minor football injury at the hospital where she works.“She is an A&E nurse who whisked me off my feet and back to health."

The romance didn't last.
