I would hope he would say I'm his best friend. And I'm keen we don't lose that element.

A reflection on her breakup
After announcing her separation from her husband Gary Farrow on live TV show Loose Women in December 2022, Jane Moore has now given some guidance to Vanessa Feltz following the news of her long-term fiancé Ben Ofoedu.

'But Vanessa is one of the most open and honest people you could wish to meet. She wears her heart on her sleeve and, consequently, will process and dispense with any hurt very swiftly indeed, and carry on like the true life force she is.'
Moore suggested that Feltz's 'greatest revenge' would be to simply focus on being happy and moving forward.
