Britain’s biggest brainiac, Anne Hegerty is the perfect virtual corporate entertainer for your online quiz, media campaign or event. Since shooting to fame on The Chase, ITV’s popular game show, Anne has carved a career in theatre, media and events, a testament to her nationwide popularity. An online quiz host or entertainer like this Chaser is guaranteed to captivate viewers, ensuring the success or your event.
No stranger to the quizzing scene, Anne has starred in Mastermind, Brain of Britain, Are You an Egghead? and, of course, her namesake The Chase. On ITV’s hit show, she is renowned for her steely persona as The Governess, which soon crumbles when host Bradley Walsh makes a risqué joke! Aside from her star quality, Anne’s exceptional general knowledge has earned her the title of Brain of Bolton, and the second female World Quizzing Champion.
In 2018, Anne starred in the eighteenth series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, where she won the heart of the nation. Appearing in one of the most popular series in the show’s history, she lasted until the 5th of December when she became the fifth contestant to leave the jungle. Most notably during Anne’s stint was her candid discussion of Autism, which raised awareness for the complex disorder. She now features at events that shine a light on the many disabilities faced by people across the globe.
While struggling for work as a freelance writer, Anne was asked to be a Chaser by the owner of the British Quiz Association in 2009 – and she has not looked back since. Anne later presented Britain’s Brightest Family in 2018 and starred in The Chase’s spin-off series, as well as several pantomimes, including Sleeping Beauty, Dick Whittington and Aladdin. Considering Anne’s extensive appearances across theatre, television and more, she is the perfect virtual entertainer for your online event.
