Jenny Ryan shows off singing talent on The Chase ahead of Celebrity X Factor

The Vixen will be joining 14 other celebrities on the spin-off show

The Chase’s Jenny Ryan will soon be swapping her career in quizzing for a spot of singing on the upcoming season of The X Factor: Celebrity.

Getting her practice in, Jenny has already been showing off her vocal capabilities on The Chase with an impromptu rendition of Bucks Fizz hit song Making Your Mind Up.

As a contestant struggled for an answer, The Vixen warbled: "Don't let your indecision, take you from behind," and Bradley decided to join in too.

Ahead of her stint on the show, fans have also been digging up old videos of Jenny, 37, showcasing her vocal abilities.

One of these clips includes her singing Sheena Easton on The Chase, which earned her a huge round of applause from the audience.

In another video from 2016, Jenny impresses with a few lines from the song (I Just) Died in Your Arms after Bradley Walsh asked a contestant: "(I Just) Died in Your Arms was the only Top Ten single for what band?"

After the contestant correctly guessed Cutting Crew, Bradley, unsure of the song, asked Jenny to sing it and she happily obliged.

"Ah, I know that one. Now you’ve sung it, I know it," Bradley replied. "I think our Jenny is a very good singer," he added.

Seemingly a little embarrassed by the praise, Jenny said she was suffering from a sore throat.

Let's also not forget her performance on Let’s Sing and Dance For Comic Relief in 2017 alongside her fellow Chasers.

And as well as being able to hold a tune, 'The Bolton Brainiac' also plays ukulele in the band Nanukes of the North.

A TV insider told The Sun: "If people are surprised by the name, they’ll be even more taken aback by just how good Jenny’s voice is. She might just turn out to be the dark horse of Celebrity X Factor."

She will be joining 14 other acts on the celebrity version of the show, including Vinnie Jones, Martin Bashir, Megan McKenna and Hayley Hasselhoff.

A super group of former Love Island contestants, including Zara McDermott, Eyal Booker, Wes Nelson and Samira Mighty, will also be taking part.
