Jenny Ryan is a singer and television personality known for her appearance as one of the five chasers on the ITV game show, The Chase. The show follows the contestants as they play against a professional quizzer who attempts to prevent them from winning.

She has now been a regular cast as The Vixen in The Chase's spinoff show Beat the Chasers.

Ryan Had a Boyfriend, Prefers a Secret Personal Life

The Chase star, being a very secretive person, talks very little about her personal life.

The last time she talked about her personal life was back in June 2016 through Twitter. Ryan had replied to a tweet by WeRateDogs stating that her boyfriend was a shark phobic.

She further revealed that her partner was obsessed with dogs, and therefore, she showed him Bark Week pictures to help him over his shark phobia.

No further information is known about her love life, and it is also unsure if she is still dating the same boyfriend, has been secretly married, or is single.

Quite interestingly, Ryan was also speculated as gay, or otherwise lesbian, when she was tagged in a thread by Twitter users in July 2019. She immediately replied to those tweets and hinted that the speculations weren't right.

She Has a History of Appearing on Quiz Shows

Ryan was born on April 2, 1982, as Jenny Alexis Ryan and raised in Bolton, England. Apart from that, she hasn’t revealed much about her early life, but she has a history of appearing on quiz shows.

The television star has made appearances on quiz shows like The Weakest Link and Fifteen to One. She was also a member of the team 'The Gamblers' on Only Connect, which won the third series of the show.

Ryan also helped the University of Leeds, who participated on the British quiz program University Challenge to reach the semi-finals in 2003.

In 2008, the pro quizzer featured in the show Are You an Egghead?, and subsequently in its second series in 2009. She eventually made her debut in The Chase in September 2015. 

Her Role in 'the Chase' Show

Initially having written questions for the pilot episode of The Chase, Ryan made her debut appearance in the show in September 2015.

She plays her role as a chaser alongside Anne Hegerty, Mark Labbett, Shaun Wallace, and Paul Sinha.

Ryan has gained a lot of attention through the big game show. She even chose the nickname, The Vixen, for her long red hair that looks like a fox brush when made into a ponytail.

In a talk with The Stuff in June 2018, the television personality revealed another reason for her self-proclaimed nickname. She stated:

Secondly, because I’ve always had a love of animals, and this name gives me free rein to be a bit flirty. It allows me to be a bit wild if I need to be.

Ryan lives to her nickname as she never fails to avoid the contestants from winning a cash prize with her fierce personality and intelligence.
