It’s a towering song by Queen and previously covered by George Michael – and now The Chase star Jenny Ryan has belted out the epic rock anthem Somebody To Love on Celebrity X Factor.
Jenny wowed as she showed off her big voice at X Factor HQ in Los Angeles in front of an audience of judges and music executives.
She received a standing ovation as she effortlessly hit the high notes, which caused head judge Simon Cowell’s mouth to fall open in amazement.
“Wow Jenny where did all that come from?” asked Louis Walsh.
Nicole Scherzinger said: “When you opened your face hole and that came out I was like ‘yeah.'”
“Jenny is on fire!” exclaimed one viewer.
“Seriously Jenny is fantastic gave me Tina Turner vibes,” said another.
The Bolton brainiac has revealed that she might not have been doing the singing show if it wasn’t for her TV colleague Bradley Walsh.
The game show host provided the confidence boost that the Chaser needed to take part in the ITV programme.
Speaking ahead of her appearance on the ITV chat show Lorraine, Jenny said: “Bradley is very proud. From the time I joined The Chase he’s always encouraged me to push myself and to explore whatever opportunities I am given.
“That’s one of the reasons I accepted the invitation to audition in the first place. I’ve held myself back a lot for a lack of confidence. And that situation you push yourself forward to take the challenge. It’s a learning experience whatever happens.”
Jenny, aka The Vixen, says while has always enjoyed singing she was “never convinced” she had a big, distinctive voice.
“I just thought I can sing in the choir, bits of AmDram, Gilbert & Sullivan society and nerdy things like that,” she said.
A fellow Boltonian has also been instrumental in building up Jenny’s confidence to sing.
“Someone who gave me a lot of confidence was my friend Martin Taylor, he’s the most famous man in Bolton,” she said.
“He is a pianist and used to play in one of the local pubs. He would sing everything from classical to rock to pop. He was amazing.
“He encouraged me to get up and sing and actually my first song in the audition is the first one he made me get up and sing.
“It was one that people would put their pint glasses down in the pub to listen to me. And I think that was the moment I realised this was something a little bit different.”
