Celebs Go Dating star Vanessa Feltz has addressed her divisive time on the show.

After splitting from her fiancé Ben Ofoedu, the This Morning regular appeared on the latest Celebs Go Dating series alongside Lottie Moss and Adam Collard.

However, her time spent looking for love was plagued by inadequate pairing choices, so much so that Vanessa and expert Paul Carrick Brunson locked horns on screen.

Looking back, Vanessa said that she feels hard done by in terms of the show's editing.

"I had no idea the editors were going to carve me up like that," she told The Daily Mail. "I was always on my best behaviour for hours on end, and then they always showed the bit where I'm looking so pissed off at the end.

"If I hadn't have been so sulky, they wouldn't have shown it. Dating at any [time is] hard but dating in front of thousands of people... I've learnt not to do any more reality TV."

Prior to the programme airing, Vanessa revealed to The Mirror that her daughters Allegra and Saskia were the ones urging her to try out Celebs Go Dating.

"[They've been] very good about it," she said. "Both my daughters are big fans of the show. They said there's no downside, definitely do it. My friends have all been really encouraging."

Discussing what fans could expect from her stint, she also shared at the time: "I think they'll be surprised to see the vulnerability and I'm not someone who is comfortable with being single. I don't like it.

"People who like it, that's great, but I don't like it."

Celebs Go Dating airs weeknights on E4.
