Vanessa Went All Weird Revealing Way Too Much Information About Her Boyfriend Than Anyone Asked For
In a recent episode of This Morning (of 16th November 2018), Vanessa lined up with hosts, Ruth Langford and Eamonn Homes, and Real Housewives of Chesire star Dawn Ward to discuss hairy men. While the rest of the panel was light on the discussion, Vanessa took it a tad too far and started revealing about his boyfriend's hair--and not the hair on his head.
He looks like a bloke is meant to look like. He’s got the tufty armpits and the odd hairs on his legs.
But she wasn't to be satisfied with this; and started to talk about his pubic hair, albeit not in so many words (thank God!).
But I wouldn’t like to just see the whole lunchbox without some kind of foliage around it.
Vanessa might have gone a tad too far, but she had the grace to cloak the directness with fancy euphemisms, thus making the show a lot more humorous than sleazy. Ben must have laughed out loud to the 'lunchbox' euphemism as well.
