Ben took to his Instagram on Friday addressing the awkward run-in. 

He said it was a ‘shame’ Vanessa didn’t come and see him after they were both seen in the same building for the first time since their split a year ago.

Ben said: ‘I’m on one of my morning walks and I want to say this publicly to you guys because my last relationship was public.

‘For the first time in a year Vanessa and I were in the same building. I didn’t see her. Reportedly she saw me and it’s a shame she didn’t come up and say hello. 

‘But nevertheless I just want to say to you guys out there there is no animosity. I’ve moved on and hopefully she’ll be able to do the same. And I wish her nothing but the best and love to her and the family. God bless.’ 

Ben and leather-clad Precious were pictured together stepping out at a screening of Ferrara at the Curzon Mayfair on December 13. 

Precious told MailOnline: ‘Yes we enjoy spending time together. We haven’t put any labels on it but yes we spend time together and will continue to spend time together.’

Vanessa was left heartbroken and humiliated when she discovered that Ben had been cheating on her. 

He desperately tried to save their 16-year relationship but Vanessa threw him out of her London home.

Ben previously revealed he believes him and Vanessa broke up because she had no intention of marrying him. 

He confessed he ‘always wanted to be a married man’ and dreamed of making Vanessa his wife, proposing to the presenter in 2006 with 50 red roses.

Ben claims Vanessa, who is 10 years his senior, never made it down the aisle because she stopped believing in marriage following her divorce from ex Michael Kurer in 2000, and he wishes she had been clearer about her longing for a ‘companion’ rather than a husband. 

Despite Ben’s own admission of being unfaithful, he refutes his own claims of being a ‘serial cheat’ – and slams the TV star for what he calls ‘publicly badmouthing’ him on This Morning, saying ‘there were two people involved, this was my life as well.’

Meanwhile Vanessa has been out living her best life 330 nights in a row because finding a man ‘is a numbers game’.

In an exclusive interview with MailOnline, the TV sensation explained that she isn’t particularly looking for love but believes she will eventually find ‘something nice’.

She revealed that while she does not have a criteria list for her next man, she does want someone with a ‘twinkle in their eye’.

Talking of her newfound single and dating life, Vanessa said: It’s not easy, and it does take guts.

‘I’ve told people millions of times ”it’s a numbers game” and I do believe that.

‘I mean you go on as many dates as you can and you might eventually find something nice. And that is what I am doing, I am doing my best.’
