Vanessa Feltz goes over to the dark side with dramatic new look

by Vanessa Feltz surprised celebrity watchers at the Jersey Boys gala performance on Thursday night as she showed off a dramatic new look.

It seems that Vanessa, who currently presents an early morning radio show on BBC Radio 2 and is known for her long blonde locks, has decided to update her image and take a risk with a different hair colour for the first time in her life.

Accompanied by her long-term partner Ben Ofoedu, Vanessa donned a short sequinned dress which drew attention to her dark tresses.

The 52-year-old's change comes as a shock as in an interview with The Guardian in 2011, the star revealed that she had "always had long hair" and has been dying it blonde "ever since I could afford the peroxide".

Other stars, including Jo Wood, Gok Wan and Arlene Phillips, turned out to watch the Gala Night performance of Jersey Boys, celebrating a new venue at the Piccadilly Theatre, a new cast, and the show's 6th birthday in the West End.

Former Strictly Come Dancing judge, Arlene, seemed to have a fantastic night as she tweeted the next day: "a touch sleepy this morning after screaming and dancing at the brilliant @JerseyBoysUK last night. Great party and full on gossip."

She later added: "FABULOUS night @JerseyBoysUK ! Well done @samueldburgess BRILLIANT cast and sound."

Gok Wan also seemed to enjoy the show. "Just home from @JerseyBoysUK What a fun evening. Great music and great singing... Even teared up at one point. Thoroughly recommend it! X"
