She is one of the favourites to win the current series of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.
But in 2015, Anne Hegerty also cropped up on another show hosted by Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
Ant, who usually hosts I’m A Celeb with pal Dec, even dressed up as her character from The Chase, the Governess, during an episode of Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.
In a spoof of the quiz show, Ant donned his best Anne Hegerty wig and matronly outfit as he was joined by the lady herself, as well as host Bradley Walsh.
The quiz was in aid of the show’s series finale, which saw Ant take home the win in a final face off with Dec during the duo’s Ant versus Dec regular segment.

Fans took to Twitter at the time to voice how much they enjoyed the spoof.
“I can’t take ant seriously as the governess, brilliant!” wrote one.
“Ant McPartlin as The Governess from The Chase is TERRIFYING,” posted another.
One fan tweeted: “#Saturdaynighttakeaway got me in stitches, the Governess lol Ant looked fab!!!”
While another wrote: “I’ve never laughed so much in my life @antanddec the similarities between Ant and The Governess is uncanny!”

Ant has not joined Dec to host I’m A Celebrity in the Australian jungle this year, as he continues to make his health a top priority.
Instead, for the first time ever, Dec has been joined by a new co-host in the form of This Morning’s Holly Willoughby.
Meanwhile, Anne recently opened up about why she believes she hasn’t found a partner to settle down with in a chat with campmate John Barrowman.

She said: "When I was working out that I was autistic it clarified a lot of things for me and one of those things was ‘that’s why I never seem to be able to make it work.
“That’s why I always feel claustrophobic in a relationship. That’s why I kind of think that’s probably not intended for me.”
