Jenny Ryan of The Chase expresses her disappointment over the cancellation of her new show.
Jenny Ryan, better known as The Vixen on ITV’s Chaser, has disappointed fans by announcing that her 2021 pantomime has been postponed.
Jenny Ryan’s fans were left heartbroken after she shared some “disappointing” news on Instagram.
Despite mounting excitement from her fans, the Chase star, better known on the ITV quiz show as The Vixen, took to social media to inform her legions of loyal followers that her latest show had been postponed.
Jenny was set to appear in the Wizard of Oz pantomime, which was about to embark on a UK tour with Jenny and Matt Baker from The One Show.
It was supposed to kick off on December 4 at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena before touring the rest of the UK.
“Some disappointing news for those of you hoping to see me in panto this year – unfortunately, the production I was due to appear in has been postponed,” Jenny wrote on Instagram.
“A throwback photo of me from a happier time in the pantomime.
In 2022, I’m hoping to return to my role as a fairy-tale villain!”
Jenny shared a photo of herself as the evil Carabosse in the 2017 panto Sleeping Beauty, surrounded by ensemble cast and dancers, looking spooky and formidable as ever.
“Booo, that’s such a shame! Such disappointing news for you,” one fan commented.
In the meantime, I hope you find something equally as wonderful.”
“Why?! Tickets were sorted!” exclaimed another, while another wrote, “Oh no, why?”
“That’s such a shame,” wrote another ardent supporter.
Jenny, you’re destined for great things, so I’m sure many wonderful opportunities will present themselves to you, and I’m sure you’ll have the opportunity and pleasure of performing in a panto next year.”
The Wizard of Oz has been “cancelled,” according to ticket purchasing websites.
Jenny is far from the only Chaser to have appeared in Pantoland, as Paul Sinha – aka The Sinnerman – admitted that his battle with Parkinson’s forced him to give up a “loved” part of his career.
Paul admitted on Clive Anderson’s My Seven Wonders podcast that due to his declining “physical fitness” as he battles Parkinson’s, he will never be able to repeat the experience.
In June of this year, the stand-up comedian revealed that he had been diagnosed with the disease.
Earlier this year, he stated:
