The Chase's Jenny Ryan almost unrecognisable without her Vixen outfit and glasses on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip

THE Chase star Jenny Ryan looked very different as she hit the shops on Celebrity Antiques Road Trip.

The 39-year-old quizzer is familiar to viewers for her Vixen persona on the ITV quiz, in a dark outfit and a very distinctive pair of specs.


However, tonight on BBC Two we saw her in her own clothes – including jeans, trainers and a very different pair of glasses.

Viewers got to see her not answering questions but trying to find valuable antiques to sell at an auction.

She was competing against pal and comedian Lucy Porter – managing to win the day, but only by racking up a smaller loss.

Jenny had £400 to spend and wound up clinching victory by ending up with £385 to Lucy's meagre £200.

She told her friend: "I've got the auction bug now" as they roared off in a classic car together.

We rarely get a look at 'real life' Jenny though we did get to see her outside the show's imposing set on X Factor: Celebrity in 2019.

Jenny is no stranger to quiz shows, having also worked on The Weakest Link and Fifteen to One.

The redhead from Bolton also starred in University Challenge in a bid to help the University of Leeds reach the semi-finals in 2003.

Her big break, however, came in 2009, after being approached to write questions for the pilot episode of The Chase.

She didn’t join the show until 2015, when she made her debut appearance on September 2 – and it was all thanks to fellow chaser Anne Hegerty, who recommended producers to hire her to be on the show.

Jenny is better known as The Vixen, which is in reference to her red hair and the former ponytail she sported; and apparently producers like the name since “vixens are notoriously clever and cunning.”
