According to his friend, Ryan-Mark Parsons from The Apprentice, the scenes haven’t been entirely enjoyable for the Phats & Small musician.
23-year-old Ryan-Mark revealed that the E4 reality show has been a recent topic of conversation and one episode was particularly difficult to watch.
Vanessa, who is 61 years old, discussed the end of her relationship with Ben, whom she broke up with after finding out that he had cheated on her multiple times.
Explaining the reaction of 51-year-old Ben, Ryan-Mark said: ‘What truly stood out to Ben was when she said, “I was happy to adore him”.
‘He kind of felt like he was an object that simply existed in her life, someone she was happy to be with and coexist with.

As for Ben’s own romantic life, Ryan-Mark claimed that he is talking to many different people.
‘He is always talking to different people, and he is naturally very flirtatious, so whenever we go out, he is kind of surrounded by Women (Women apparel Here) – it is quite something,’ he explained.
Ryan-Mark, who stars in the interactive play Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding with Ben, added that they spend a lot of time at the exclusive Soho House, where Women (Women apparel Here) who are ‘20 years younger than him’ are interested.
Vanessa and Paul had an argument during a recent episode (Picture: Channel 4)Ben recently responded to Vanessa expressing upset about spending time with a man named Bilal.
The furious presenter said on the program: ‘So this is a gentleman, charming, handsome, who is in a band, who tours. The last thing I want is some traveling horny musician. I’ve had that.’
Things escalated to a point where dating expert Paul C Brunson, 49, said she was ‘coming for me’.
Sharing an image from the incident, Ben wrote ‘Welcome to my world’.
‘They absolutely knew Vanessa would kick off. She’s genuinely upset,’ wrote one person on Twitter (X).
Plenty of others disagreed though, with one writing: ‘However valid her reasons or excuses are Vanessa is just downright rude!’
Although romance doesn’t seem to be going well on the show, Vanessa’s luck may have now changed as she is allegedly dating a divorced millionaire.
Celebs Go Dating is available to watch on Channel 4.
