Starting out on This Morning with Richard and Judy where she was an anti-agony aunt, she was spotted by Anglia Television and was chosen to present the UK’s first ever Oprah Winfrey style talk show – The Vanessa Show ran for five mornings a week from 1994-1998. Next she spent two years interviewing celebrities aboard The Big Breakfast bed as well as hosting a year long Sunday morning show on Talk Radio and Value For Money (1995-2000).
Vanessa was a contestant on the first British version of Celebrity Big Brother in 2001 and also made an appearance in a sketch in the first episode of the second series of BBC comedy sketch show Little Britain playing a fictional sliming club spokeswoman for Fat Fighters. In 2004 she appeared in the second series of reality TV show Celebrity Fit Club in a bid to lose weight. Since 2002 Vanessa has been presenting a three hour radio phone in show on BBC London 94.9 as well as writing a weekly column in The Daily Express.
In January 2011 Feltz took over the BBC Radio 2 Early Breakfast Show starting at 05:00 until 06:30 each weekday in the slot formerly occupied by Sarah Kennedy. She also continued her morning phone-in programme on BBC London 94.9 at 09:00 until 12:00 each weekday. Dubbed “officially the hardest working woman in broadcasting” by The Guardian due to her weekday broadcasting commitments Vanessa is a joy at any corporate event whether hosting or speaking.
