Before she joined the hallowed ranks of professional quizzers, you might have seen Jenny appear as a contestant on shows such as University ChallengeMastermind, and on Only Connect as one third of series 3 champions The Gamblers. Her name might be familiar to eagle-eyed quiz fans from the credits of shows including Weakest Link and QI, having served her time as a researcher and writer behind the cameras.

Jenny is best known as one of the Chasers on ITV's hit teatime quiz show The Chase. Nicknamed 'The Vixen' and 'The Bolton Brainiac' by host Bradley Walsh, she has been intimidating contestants since September 2015.
