VANESSA Feltz has confessed she “regrets” never having a gay fling.
The BBC host, 59, has been engaged to Phats & Small singer Ben Ofoedu, 49, since 2006 but wishes she had been with a woman before they got together as she was “flooded” with offers.
Recalling her experience at a lesbian festival she hosted when she was younger, she said: “I got absolutely bombarded.
“There were bosoms shoved in my face from all directions and now that I have had ample opportunity to reflect on these things, I wonder why I didn’t take advantage of the numerous offers that flooded in my direction.
“I was wrong, I was mad, it was absurd. I’m sorry, I regret it.
“I’ve been a gay icon for decades now, it’s embarrassing to admit how many.”
But she fears she has now missed the boat because she feels too “well known” and no longer gets offers from women.
Vanessa, who earns £390,000 a year for her shows on BBC Radio 2 and Radio London, makes the comments on the new episode of the podcast A Gay And A NonGay.
When hosts James Barr and Dan Hudson insisted it isn’t too late for her to have a lesbian experience, she admitted: “I know, but where am I going to get the offers these days?
“I’m working and I’ve got this partner. I’m very flamboyant, very well known, very heterosexual, very large, and quite prominent in many ways.
“I don’t think people would imagine that the avenue – my avenue, or cul de sac, or whatever you want to call it – was ever open to that kind of invitation.”
The outspoken TV and radio presenter recently spoke on how her libido is thriving.
She said in lockdown she and Ben had the most sex they have had in 15 years.
At the time she said: "It is not like we’re doing anything else at the moment, so what the hell are we going to do if we’re not doing that?
"Also, we haven’t got kids at home anymore, so we really can do it whenever we want to.
“We don’t have to ask for anyone’s permission if we want to do whatever we want, in any room that we feel like doing it in, in any position we want to do it in, at any time of the day. And that is quite a nice feeling.”
