The Chase star Jenny Ryan, 39, is best known for her quizzing expertise on the popular ITV show, where she is nicknamed The Vixen. She has also previously showcased her singing talents on a celebrity version of the X Factor and is now seemingly eyeing up an acting role, following Jodie Whittaker’s Doctor Who exit announcement.

Earlier today, the BBC announced the 39-year-old actress and Chris Chibnall will be bowing out of the show in Autumn 2022 after a new six-part series and three specials.

Jenny has now revealed she’d be up for replacing the female lead. 

The Vixen star shared a picture of herself posing next to a replica police box in true Doctor Who style.

In view of her 95,000 followers, she joked: “Sending off my CV to the BBC.

“But is the world ready for a fat speccy ginger Doctor? #DoctorWho.”(sic)

Many of her fans flocked to her post to comment.

One wrote: “I reckon you would make an amazing Dr Who Jenny.”

A second added: “I’d watch that!”

Emily Atack’s mum Kate Robbins commented: “Stop it. You’re beautiful!”

Jenny wouldn’t be the first star of The Chase to sign up for the show if she was successful.

Host Bradley Walsh starred in the popular programme as Graham O’Brien until the end of series 12.

After saying his goodbyes, it was later announced he’d be replaced by comedian and actor John Bishop.

On leaving the show, he admitted he found the hectic filming “relentless”.

“This is ten months of ramming speed,” he confessed.

“That’s what it is. I’m in my 60th year. It’s tough. It’s hard. It’s relentless. It really is. This ain’t an easy gig,” he added.

Jodie became the first female Doctor Who back in 2017.

Addressing her exit, she said as part of a lengthy statement: “I cannot thank Chris enough for entrusting me with his incredible stories.

“We knew that we wanted to ride this wave side by side, and pass on the baton together.

“So here we are, weeks away from wrapping on the best job I have ever had.

“I don’t think I’ll ever be able to express what this role has given me. I will carry the Doctor and the lessons I’ve learnt forever.

“I know change can be scary and none of us know what’s out there.

“That’s why we keep looking. Travel hopefully. The universe will surprise you. Constantly.”
