What did The Chase star say next?

Jenny continued slamming the troll over the course of her next few tweets.

“In seriousness, would the OP tweet this to any of my male colleagues?” she asked.

In the next tweet, she wrote: “It’s infuriating that in 2022 CE I’m still being primarily judged on whether some random man on the internet wants to bang me (based on some Victorian ideal of the meek and mild woman, apparently) rather than how good I am at my job.”

“Side note: I’m rarely patronising, let alone sarcastic or rude to the contestants,” she added.

Plenty of her 108.1k followers took to the replies to show their support for the 39-year-old quizzer.

“You’re not Jenny, you are a really lovely person. I think you say things as they are.You are The Vixen, a strong and smart Chaser. Ignore them they are just so jealous of you – stay strong,” one of her followers tweeted.

“I think you’re great Jen, you’re very fair and praise them when they’ve done well, and make a witty quip when they don’t,” another said.
