THE Chase’s Jenny Ryan has been given another chance on The X Factor: Celebrity.
On Saturday night, viewers saw judges Simon Cowell, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger tell Ryan they could not give her a yes for the Overs category.
But after considering the celebrities’ performances again, the trio decided Ryan did deserve a coveted spot on the live shows.
Ryan now joins the remaining celebrity acts as they go live for the first time on the ITV show.
The 13 acts — including Ryan and footballer-turned-film star Vinnie Jones — will now hope to win the votes of the public in the coming weeks as they bid to win a record contract.
Ryan said: ‘I’ve loved every moment of The X Factor and I’m delighted to be able to get the opportunity to perform live.
‘The response from the public has been amazing — what an incredible experience. I’m so pleased it’s continuing!’
Mentor Scherzinger said: ‘Jenny was just brilliant at her audition in LA. That voice of hers is one of a kind, and she’s an amazing person to get to know.
‘So it was such a tough decision to make. After a lot of discussion we all agreed we had to put her through. The Overs are gonna smash it this year!’
The X Factor: Celebrity returns to ITV live at 8.20pm on Saturday.
