The Channel 4 show is back for another series, with hopefuls from across the country hoping to impress the judges.

And among them is Jenny Cobb, an experienced potter, who lives near Doncaster and works out of a studio in North Lincolnshire.

Last night’s show saw Jenny make it safely through to next week and is now one of nine potters from twelve left after Josh was shown the door in the latest episode.

Jenny Cobb is still in the hunt to win TV's Great Pottery Throw Down.

While yet to be named as one of the judges’ favourites, Jenny has also avoided being named among the least favourites.

Each week, judges Rich Miller and Keith Brymer Jones are testing the contestants at some creative challenges, after which they’ll decide who will go home and who will stay in the competition.

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 where she loves to throw her signature doughnut vases.

Presented by comedian Ellie Taylor and Siobhán McSweeney, the show first aired in 2015 and was presented by Sara Cox.

The fifth series is airing on Channel 4 and the latest episode airs at 7.45pm on Sunday.
