Jenny Ryan has gone from quiz show question writing to TV stardom over the past few years, since joining The Chase as general knowledge expert The Vixen.
The 39-year-old became a part of the Chasers’ line-up in 2015, with her nickname a reference to her red hair – which she is known for wearing onscreen in a beehive.
In fact, she still gets a lot of attention for her barnet – with some viewers still convinced she’s wearing a wig, rather than showing off her own hair on the programme.
Is Jenny’s hair real or does she wear a wig on The Chase?
Is Jenny Ryan’s hair real on The Chase?
Well, we can put those rumours to bed once and for all, because Jenny has in the past addressed the question of whether or not her hair on The Chase is all her own.
When posed the question on her own website she said: ‘My hair is 100% real and growing from my own head!’
So that’s that then. While she was at it she also confirmed that her glasses are also real. ‘They’re not just for show,’ Jenny explained, ‘I’m really short-sighted.’
While Jenny may have clarified the answer to this personally, it doesn’t stop people from asking her from time to time.
She was forced to address the myth again this summer after sharing photos on media which showed her with her hair down, and in a lighter, more blonde shade.
All of which sent the rumour mill churning again, as she was asked by one follower: ”Why do you wear wigs on The Chase?’ – responding simply: ‘THEY’RE AT IT AGAIN.’
If you want to know more about Jenny, you can check out her personal website – where she also offers details on how to apply to be on The Chase, and how long you might have to wait before actually getting a spot on the show.
The Chase airs weekdays on ITV at 5pm.
