Vanessa continued: ‘I don’t know if I’m on my A game. I think I look ok. I hope some other people might think so. I’ve had a chequered career in terms of my weight but that’s under control.
‘Instead of being grateful that a man flickers his eyes in my direction. I’d like to reach a level of confidence where I think, “I’m glad you’ve chosen me but you’re not right.”‘
Earlier this week, Vanessa took a swipe at her cheating ex Ben she appeared on the first episode of the new Celebs Go Dating series on Sunday.
The broadcaster has joined the lineup in a bid to find love again after she split from her long-time fiancé Ben, 51, in January.
As she was introduced to the dating show Vanessa briefly chatted about her relationship history after being with Ben for 16 years as she criticised him being unfaithful.
She said in her intro ahead of the mixer: ‘Once the trust in a relationship has been thoroughly nuked you really can’t get it back again even if you try, and I did try.’
Vanessa added of her relationship status: ‘I never wanted single life and I don’t like being single, I fear being single.
‘I want to invest in someone. I want to invest my completely broken heart into someone.’

During the first episode Vanessa attended a mixer with the other celebs and was seen chatting to and flirting with a host of men.
It comes after last week Vanessa admitted she’s a ‘rotten picker’ of men as she revealed she’s been on 13 dates following her split from Ben while on the show.

The star confessed that the process has been ‘damn difficult.’
Speaking to Josie Gibson and Andi Peters on This Morning, Vanessa said that when a date doesn’t go well it is akin to ‘wading through treacle,’ and was tight-lipped on whether she’s kept in touch with any of her male suitors.
Speaking about her time on the show, Vanessa said: ‘I think dating is damn difficult. I’ve not done it for 17 years. I wouldn’t sit here and pretend it’s a breeze and a blast.
‘When it’s not going well it’s like wading through treacle. But when you meet someone it can be easy it can be bliss.
‘It can be great. It’s just a numbers game isn’t it… I have been a rotton picker, I haven’t been good at picking. I thought the agents must be able to do better than I can, they can’t do any worse.’
Grilled on whether she’s tested any dating snaps, she added: ‘I’ve never done it. I’ve never swiped left and right. I don’t have the apps. I’m hoping someone introduces me to someone nice at some point.’

Admitting she’d only seen one episode of the show before she signed up, Vanessa laughed off the prospect of a romance with any of her Celebs Go Dating co-stars.
She added: ‘Am I not old enough to be their mother or grandma – I was doing the maths. I did think gosh I’m a little more vintage and antique than they are.’
Vanessa revealed she went on 13 dates while appearing on the show, saying: ‘I think if you fancy someone you completely forget there are cameras.
‘There was one point where I yelled have we got enough in the can yet? My date looked mortified. The producers said I was tough in parts.’
