Jenny Ryan

Jenny Ryan is best known among British audiences for appearing on popular quiz show “The Chase”. As an expert quizzer she participates in the show with her chaser nickname “The Vixen” where teams of four strangers compete to beat her knowledge in order to win money.

Alongside her extensive knowledge, Jenny is also a singer and has experience playing ukulele in the band Nanukes of the North. TV audiences were first introduced to her singing when she won celebrity show “Let’s Sing and Dance for Comic Relief” alongside her colleagues from The Chase. They sang a medley from the movie Wizard of Oz and she played the role of Dorothy.

More recently, in late 2019 Jenny participated in “The X Factor: Celebrity”. Having originally been eliminated after the first round, due to popular demand she was reinstated into the live shows as a wildcard. During the live shows she sang both “Rise Like a Phoenix” and “Euphoria” of Eurovision winning fame. She went on to finish the competition in third place. | Find out more about this artist and others like them at
