The Governess From ‘The Chase’ Looks Unrecognisable When She's Off The Show
Anne Hegerty dons an intimidating persona on ITV's The Chase, as the Governess. With her trademark grey suit, white shirt with bowtie, red lipstick and scoffed expression, she slays contestants day in, day out, with not too much emotion.
But today was a different day.
Anne appeared on ITV's Loose Women programme to talk about life behind that mask of The Governess. But viewers were shocked and surprised when the 59-year-old walked onto the stage in a flowing, bright top, make-up and flowery earrings.

Fans of the quiz show star were loving her new look as well as her honesty on the programme.
I think she is a revelation. Love her honesty and really appreciate her humour. Brilliant!

She is an amazing woman regardless of looks or style. She is an asset to The Chase anyhow.

Anne told the panel: "You can't imagine how much I don't miss the suit. I don't know if I'd say I hate it. I love doing The Chase, it's been fantastic, I hope it goes on being fantastic. But that is not what I'd have chosen to wear."
She also revealed that The Governess wasn't the first title that the programme would bestow on her: "Originally, I was going to be called The Headmistress and during rehearsals Brad kept saying The Governess instead. I asked if I could change it to that - it's more kinky.
"A headteacher has a board of governors and OFSTED. A governess is a free agent."

The former journalist detailed how she turned her life around when two bailiffs arrived at her home one day and explained that she hadn't been paying her bills. But after getting some help to fill out forms for financial benefits, she built up her career to where she is now.
Anne has also appeared on Mastermind, Fifteen to One, Today's the Day, Are You an Egghead? and Brain of Britain.
