With an 80% win rate during her four years on The Chase, Jenny Ryan aka The Vixen has one of the best track records on the ITV game show.

But that doesn't stop her getting a bit upset whenever she fluffs a question.

"Ideally, we'd get everything right all the time," she wryly told The Mirror.

"But the human brain has limitations. It's upsetting when you get something wrong but we have to immediately forget it."

As you'd imagine, Jenny and the other Chasers – Mark 'The Beast' Labbett, Anne 'The Governess' Hegerty, Paul 'The Sinnerman' Sinha and Shaun 'The Dark Destroyer' Wallace – are a highly competitive bunch, with Jenny revealing that they keep track of each other's wins.

"Oh we have a chart of wins. We look at all the stats so we can see who's best at what topics," she said.

However, in a new version of the show, called Beat The Chasers, the quiz geniuses must now work together at the same time to catch the contestants, which Jenny says makes a refreshing change.

"It's been fun for the audience to see how we interact," she said.

"You can see people treading on each other's toes and saying funny things to amuse the others. And we're used to working against each other, so it's lovely for us to be a big team."

Also revealing that the Chasers stay in touch with each other via a text group, she added: "Paul is the joker but if he texts it's always just a really hard quiz question! We're always training, we're a serious bunch."

The Chase airs on ITV.
