Jenny’s co-stars even had their say.

Anne Hegerty chimed in: “Slightly affronted that you think I’m NOT a complete smart****.”

Darragh Ennis also wrote: “Ooh, I’m the least favourite? Finally I beat you at something!”

Paul Sinha responded to the remark: “Imagine being you. Imagine thinking this is a way to conduct yourself.”

Jenny, Anne, Shaun Wallace, Mark Labbett, Paul Sinha and Darragh returned for new episodes of the show earlier this week.

The celebrity specials saw the likes of Carol Vorderman and Joel Dommett putting their knowledge to the test to win money for their chosen charity.

Despite their efforts, Clive Mantle and Simon Weston were the only celebrity participants who managed to beat the chasers so far this year.

Previous series have seen the quizmasters clash over time wasting and wrong answers while up against brave contestants.

Last year, Jenny jokingly punched Paul for getting a question wrong, while Mark slammed Shaun for taking his time.

Despite this, the Vixen said they are all friends and support each other.

She told Yours.co.uk: “We’ve known each other for years through the quiz circuit. Darragh (Ennis) is our new boy, but he’s slotted in really well.

“Being a Chaser is something that no one else understands so we have to be there for each other.

“We’ve got a Whatsapp group but you don’t want to know what goes on in that!”

The Chase continues tomorrow at 5pm on ITV.
