Jenny Cobb still has her sights on victory in the Channel 4 show after being named one of the judge's favourites of the week – hot on the heels of winning the previous week’s show.

The show began with 12 potters – and Jenny is now just one of five left.

Earlier in the series, Jenny, who works out of a studio in North Lincolnshire, was named as one the judges’ least favourites, but survived.
