Anne Hegerty is an English TV quiz personality who is best known for appearing as one of "The Chasers" on the British game show, The Chase, since the start of the show's second season in 2010.
Besides the show The Chase, she has been associated as the hostess of another quiz show Britain's Brightest Family, which is a show by ITV.

Anne Hegerty was diagnosed with high-functioning autism, a developmental disorder, in 2005. She revealed this news in 2017 while appearing on Loose Women.
Her uncanny condition drowned her in debts as she was not earning because of her illness.
However, her life got a new turn when the social worker Jeff Mackenzie helped her get her finances, and at the same time, secured her an audition for The Chase.
