SHE’S entertained millions with her curveball answers to simple general knowledge questions.

And now Jenny Davies is getting used to life as an internet superstar.

The Facebook clip of the 22-year-old, from Fratton, giving her daft answers swept social media being shared internationally.

And the brains behind the video, her boyfriend 24-year-old Brad Holmes, a window cleaner from Southampton, has discovered a hidden talent for blogging and social media marketing.

Jenny, a former City of Portsmouth Girls’ School pupil, said: ‘A couple of months ago Brad was asking me questions and he realised that some of my answers were appalling.

‘He made the video and it went viral. It got more than two million hits so he thought he would make another one at the end of the year, but that one has gone even more crazy.’

Brad posted the video on a Facebook page called ‘Brad’s Dad’ that he had set up to show clips of his dad ranting at work.

The clip has now been watched nearly 750,000 times since it was posted on January 1, with many people saying they want to see more.

In the clip, Jenny gives her answers with conviction, such as saying she thinks the capital of South Africa is Africa, the creator of Apple is Bill Gates and Winston Churchill discovered America.

And Brad says that’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to her zany logic.

‘She’s got an explanation for it all which is quite funny. She baffles me sometimes,’ he said.

In the past she’s told Brad she thought you could swim under 
Britain and that sat navs speak different 
languages depending what country they’re in.

Brad said: ‘I’d never seen anything like it before.

‘She’s got intelligence but there’s no common sense.’

Now the pair, who met because Jenny recognised Brad from his Brad’s Dad Facebook page in a Port Solent pub five months ago, have been stopped in the street by strangers.

And they’re in talks with television producers in the hope of making it on to the small screen.

But the burning question – is Jenny making it up for the camera?

‘People think I’m putting it on,’ she said.

‘But it’s true. I’m that stupid, ask my friends and family.

‘Even my nan said “where have you got that from?”.’
