The Chase is the daytime TV show that everyone can have a go at – well, if shouting at the TV is your answer to audience participation, anyway.

ITV’s famous quiz show is hosted by Bradley Walsh and features an array of recognisable Chasers.

From The Governess to The Dark Destroyer, all the Chasers are geared up for another series in 2019.

One topic has cropped up in relation to a specific Chaser, though. And it’s got nothing to do with intelligence and everything to do with her tresses.

Is The Chase’s Vixen  – AKA Jenny Ryan – wearing a wig? We took the time to investigate…

The Chase: Is Jenny wearing a wig?

The subject of Jenny Ryan’s hair often comes up on Twitter when she appears on The Chase.

Many viewers of the show take to the internet to chat about her barnet and now fans of the show are asking if her hair is real.

To clear up any confusion, Jenny took to Twitter in 2017 and said: “Yes, it’s all my own hair. Extra backcombing for the Celeb specials.”

And although Jenny’s hair may be her own, we can safely say that the colour isn’t all that genuine as she takes to Instagram to share a hair-dye photo.

Jenny’s hair on previous series

Jenny’s 2019 look on The Chase is pretty toned down compared to some of the hairstyles she’s had on the show.

She has sported enormous beehive styles as well as sleek straight do’s.

But it looks as though The Vixen changes up her hairstyle dependent on the occasion. As she mentioned in her Twitter post, Jenny prefers to opt for the beehive during Celebrity Specials of The Chase, chooses to have her hair down for the general show and even sports an up-do for events such as The TV Choice Awards.
