Doncaster potter Jenny Cobb.

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

The 43-year-old full time mum is also a keen bird watcher and metal detectorist.

She lives near Doncaster with her two children and her husband, as well as their two cats and four chickens.

After teaching for years she left her job to concentrate on family life.

Growing up around her Grandma’s pottery wheel and craft market stall, Jenny took up pottery properly a few years ago and has a studio at home.
