Vanessa Feltz’s ex-fiancé Ben Ofoedu enjoyed a night out with pals on Wednesday night as he headed out in London.
The Phats & Smalls singer, 50, sported a stylish ensemble for the evening as he was snapped arriving, alongside a group of musician and DJ friends.
He has been at the centre of scandal recently following his shock split from broadcaster Vanessa, who he admitted to being unfaithful to last week in an apology video.
And heading for a night on the town, he sported a pair of light-wash baggy jeans and a royal blue shirt.
Leaving his chest partly exposed while teaming it with a silver chain necklace, the musician layered a dark denim jacket on top.

Making a fashion statement, he shielded his eyes with a pair of black sunglasses.
The singer was joined by fellow musicians Kule T and Aliki Hewitt, alongside DJ Jodie Weston.
He appeared in high spirits while beaming alongside R&B artist Kule for a snap, who sported a grey turtle-neck jumper with a matching pair of jeans.
It comes after a source revealed to MailOnline that Ben was set for a ‘new beginning’ as he has been cast in a brand new London show, Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding, based on the Broadway smash-hit.
The singer will put his dancing shoes on for rehearsals next week, ahead of the opening night on March 30, where audience members will be immersed in an Italian American wedding.
A source told MailOnline: ‘There has not yet been an announcement on this, but Ben has just been cast in a leading role in impresario Paul Gregg’s new play Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding.
‘He will play the part of the event host Vinnie Black. He goes into rehearsals next week and will appear on Steph’s Packed Lunch next Wednesday. It represents a new beginning for Ben.

‘Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is a long standing off Broadway hit where the audience become the guests at the wedding of two feuding Italian American families.’
This unique live theatrical experience will officially open at the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London on March 3.
The show takes the format of an Italian American wedding where audience members become guests for the evening and enjoy a sit-down dinner whilst following star-eyed lovebirds Tony and Tina on their chaotic wedding day.
Actors mingle with the audience directly as if everybody is part of the wedding itself.
The hilarious production is being launched in the UK by veteran theatre impresario Paul Gregg, the man who originally brought The Lion King to the Lyceum Theatre in London’s West End.
Paul, who is launching the show in conjunction with business partner Kern Judge, said: ‘We’re delighted to be hosting the truly fantastic Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding at the ArcelorMittal Orbit from Spring 2023.
‘Join us for a celebration night out that includes a three course Italian wedding dinner, which is enjoyed whilst the show unfolds all around you!’
The production opens with the blessing of US producers Raphael Berko and Jeff Gitlin from Las Vegas along with Larry Pellegrini, who directed and wrote the original Broadway version of the show.
End of the road: It comes after Vanessa Feltz, 61, revealed she had split from her long-term partner amid claims he’d been unfaithful while on a tour of UK holiday parks, which he later confirmed
After more than 25 years since first opening its doors in New York, Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is still loved by multiple generations worldwide.
Guests will be immersed in an authentic Italian atmosphere – complete with tossing the bouquets, cutting the cake, traditional music, food, and of course plenty of dancing.
The team behind this classic comedy – which started the genre of interactive theatre – chose London as the perfect city for its debut in Europe.
The ArcelorMittal Orbit tower was also selected due to its location and amazing panoramic views that it offers its guests.
The show has been seen around the world since its start in the 1980s — from Las Vegas to Hawaii, on cruise ships and everywhere in-between.
Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is booking now. Tickets priced at £95 plus booking fee, includes show, three-course dinner and complimentary glass of bubbly. For more information, visit: ticketline.co.uk/tony-n-tinas-wedding-dinner-and-show#bio.
Good watch: Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding is a long standing off Broadway hit where the audience become the guests at the wedding of two feuding Italian American families
Vanessa, 61, revealed she had split from her partner of 16 years two weeks ago amid claims he’d been unfaithful while on a tour of UK holiday parks with his electronic dance music act, which he later confirmed.
The woman who Ben reportedly strayed with recently told MailOnline for the first time how she sent a bombshell email to Vanessa, followed by an ‘awkward’ phone call, in which she blew the whistle on Ben’s ‘serial womanising’.
Ben’s fling told Vanessa she had been ‘hopelessly in love’ with him after a series of steamy encounters in Ibiza and Thailand.
But she insisted that the BBC Radio 2 host deserved to know her partner had tried to seduce at least three other younger women.
The successful businesswoman – who bears a close resemblance to Vanessa – said she initially had no idea that Ben had a long-term partner when her romance with him began, and she broke off the relationship as soon as she found out.
But beachclub owner and restaurateur Ella, 59, who does not wish to use her real name, described him as ‘an octopus who has no respect for women’ and said she wanted to set the record straight after he ‘peddled lies’ about their year-long fling.

After the email, Ella and Vanessa had a ‘difficult’ phone conversation during which Vanessa told her that what she and Ofoedu had done was ‘very wrong’.
In the email, Ella wrote to Vanessa: ‘I was aware of his relationship with you, and I felt very guilty but he pursued me so much I couldn’t resist his charm.
‘I was terrified sending that email,’ said Ella, ‘and even more so when Vanessa called me back. I completely understood her anger at me and I certainly didn’t respond angrily to her, but it was a very awkward conversation.’
Despite the revelations about Ben’s behaviour in the email and phone call, Vanessa apparently decided to forgive him.
Earlier this month however, Vanessa announced she had finally dumped him after a series of other illicit relationships emerged.
Mother-of-one Ella remained silent for six years, but only decided to speak out after she said Ben insulted her in his toe-curling mea culpa interview last week, in which he described their relationship as ‘purely sexual with no feelings involved’ and – most disparagingly – that sex with her was ‘almost a chore’.
