TV presenter Jenny Powell has called for game show 'Wheel Of Fortune' to be rebooted
Jenny Powell would love to see 'Wheel Of Fortune' rebooted.
The 52-year-old presenter starred on the hit game show earlier in her career, and she'd love for the programme to return to TV screens in the near future.
She said: "About two years ago I asked my agent who had the rights to it – I said it should be coming back really, but didn’t do anything about it."
Jenny would relish the chance to star in a reboot. However, she also likes the idea of Alison Hammond being handed the reins of the show, after the 'This Morning' presenter recently filmed a pilot for a new version.
Jenny told the Daily Star newspaper: "I think Alison would be great and I’d definitely be there if the offer came up.
"Even if it was just to give advice as I know the rules inside out."
Jenny also believes the game show could help to lift the spirits of the nation amid the latest coronavirus lockdown.
She said: "Everybody's become really nostalgic and it would be great for it to come back, but I’d like it to stay similar to the way it was, not get too much technology involved and keep the rickety wheel that sometimes used to break."
Jenny has revealed she's banned her kids from watching 'Love Island'.
The TV star – who has Connie, 19, and Pollyanna, 12 – thinks her youngest daughter could follow her into the entertainment industry one day, but she won't allow them to watch the ITV2 show.
Jenny – who joined 'Wheel Of Fortune' in the mid-90s – said: "Neither of them are doing 'Love Island' – no with a capital N, no chance. They're not even allowed to watch it."
