Jenny Ryan addressed a Chase viewer who branded her a 'condescending cow' on Twitter.

Tuesday's episode saw The Vixen take on Kimberley, James, Niall and Nicola.

The teachers were hoping to win a large amount of money - but Jenny was doing everything possible to make sure that didn't happen.

But one angry viewer sent Jenny an extremely nasty message in a now-deleted tweet.

According to ChronicleLive, the post, which Jenny and many of her followers were quick to react to before it was taken down read: "Is it just me, or does anyone else find the Vixen on the chase a condescending cow.

"Stuck up her own a**e springs to mind #sackheroff #vilewoman #vixen."

The Twitter user went a step further by including ITV in the tweet urging the channel to sack her.

Swiftly replying, Jenny wrote: "Thanks for the tag Sally! Always good to have a heads-up when someone's asked the company I work for to fire me.

Jenny 'the Vixen' Ryan responded to the hater

"P.S, If you think I'm condescending on the show, then you don't know the half of it."

She added: "I'm literally doing my job, in exactly the same way as my Chaser colleagues do and always have done.

"This seems to be a perception issue, a separate issue with me."

One fan replied: "This is nonsense. If anything I think you’re too nice sometimes! Lol. You’re amazing so ignore these trolls who clearly wouldn’t have a clue if they ever made it onto a quiz show."

Another told her: "Apart from the fact that you're probably the least snarky of the Chasers anyway, you guys would make terrible Chasers if you weren't at least a bit intimidating. I really don't think she gets the point of the show."

After noticing the account of the person who abused her had disappeared, Jenny later tweeted: "This has escalated into a proper conversation about online behaviour and abuse, as well as mental health, which is an escalating issue for more of us than ever."
