“We tried to hold on but the thought of him and his wife getting closer again was tearing me apart so I called it off.”

She continued: “When lockdown lifted, we tried to get back to where we were but now I’m so scared I’ll lose him again.

I think this is the end of this affair don’t you?

“What shall I do?”

Meanwhile, stunned by the situation, Vanessa said: “I think say bye bye. I think this is the end of this affair don’t you?

“It doesn’t look like it’s got legs does it? You’re scared that he’s with his wife, you’re scared that he’s close to her.

Vanessa Feltz tells This Morning caller to end affair

“He’s obviously not suggesting leaving his wife and building a new life with our lovely viewer is he?”

However, Holly Willoughby asked: “Is that enough for you? Is that what you really want?”

Vanessa continued: “Exactly. I reckon if it had a future, you and he would be saying, ‘that lockdown was such a terrible thing and neither of us could bare it, we’re going to have to come clean.’

“That’s not what happened at all. You carried on your sneaky affair. This gives you plenty of time to think about what really matters.

“Maybe going behind somebody’s wife’s back isn’t the ideal thing.”
