Following the performance, she has received overwhelming praise on social media, with individuals describing her as "gifted", "a powerhouse" and "spectacular". One fan tweeted: "Wow, what a voice.
She smashed it. Absolutely brilliant." Another posted: "Wow, what a set of pipes. Amazing." And yet another: "I don't think I'll ever get bored of this, Jenny Ryan, for me, stole the show tonight, absolutely incredible." At the end of her solo, ITV viewers saw the expressions of shock and amazement on the faces of music industry professionals and judges as the cameras panned around judge Simon Cowell's Malibu mansion's garden. Jenny, aged 37, is one of the Chasers from ITV's The Chase, with her knowledge also seeing her compete on The Weakest Link, University Challenge and Mastermind. She initially was hired to write the questions for The Chase, then later became one of the Chasers in 2015, after fellow Chaser, Anne Hagerty recommended her., dubbed 'The Vixen', In the group's intro VT, Wes Nelson claims "if you'd asked me, prior to Love Island, to write down what I want to be as a dream job, it'd be a singer." And sing he can.
Really frickin' well. Wes, Zara McDermott, Eyal Booker and Samira Mighty might be best known for their time in the villa, but we can totally see them in contention for Christmas number 1. No joke. The harmonies are on point, styling's sick and it's safe to say Samira's Dreamgirls role stood her in good stead. OUR RATING: 4.5/5
