Jenny Powell would love her 90s game show 'Wheel of Fortune' to make a one-off comeback
Jenny Powell wants to bring back 'Wheel of Fortune' with Bradley Walsh.
The 47-year-old TV presenter has admitted she would love to do a one-off special of the '90s game-show she fronted with the 54-year-old 'The Chase' host, after hearing that people watching repeats of it on Challenge TV are "enjoying it so much".
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Jenny said: "It's great to see (Bradley) doing so well, and also it's great to see the repeats of 'Wheel of Fortune'. I think there might be a comeback, because Twitter's gone mad with it!
"It's quite comforting to see people enjoying so much, and I don't think either of us have changed that much. Maybe we should just come back for a one-off special, but I'm sure the wheel's broken or something!"
The mother-of-two also revealed how "bonkers" she found it when her six-year-old daughter Pollyanna was sitting with her parents watching reruns of the show, which ran from 1995 to 2000.
She said: "It's bonkers, I think my mum and dad were watching ('Wheel of Fortune'), and Pollyanna saw and was like, 'Mummy, is that you?'... She was quite entertained by it, but then she got suitably bored by it and started playing with her toys.
"It's just bizarre seeing yourself on TV 15 years ago! I was just mesmerised, because I don't normally watch myself on the TV, because once I've done something, that's it, I don't watch it back, but even I was just glued to the screen. I should've done a selfie of me watching me 20 years back for a laugh."
