Vanessa Feltz thinks her gastric band has 'slipped' but insists she doesn't regret it

December 3, 2018

During an interview with OK! Magazine, the TV star even joked she couldn't afford to marry her boyfriend Ben Ofoedu because she'd splashed all her cash on the weight loss op.

Vanessa explained: "They think it’s slipped, so the question is, do I take it out or leave it?

"I haven’t decided what to do.

"Apparently, this happens to one in five people.

"I don’t regret it but now it’s not so good."

The 56-year-old who has two daughters together, Allegra and Saskia, with her ex husband, has been engaged to singer-songwriter Ben since 2006.

Although they were due to marry in 2007, and then again in 2011, no wedding has yet taken place, with Vanessa explaining that her previous marital experience was holding her back.

The former CBB star made it clear that a wedding ceremony is still not on the cards thanks to her disastrous gastric band.

She said: "I can’t afford to. I spent all the money on a gastric band!"

It's not the first issue she's had since the surgery and admitted on This Morning she'd been suffering with horrific side effects.

Vanessa explained: "It's started acting up something chronic. I wasn't even sure it had anything to do with the band. I was fast asleep and woke up and felt like I was drowning. My whole mouth, nose, ears, eyes seemed to be full of liquid."

Despite the health scares the gastric band has caused, Vanessa still isn't sure whether she can go under the knife again.

On getting the gastric band removed, she said: "I don't want to have it taken out. I’m scared I'll suddenly eat and entire camel and a heard of elephants. It's been restricting me for eight years. I can walk into any shop and buy a dress that fits. Plus I don't want an operation for something I don't want."
