Speaking in an interview with Radio Times magazine, Jenna said: “There’s lots of rumours. We’ve sat down with [showrunner] Steven Moffat and we’ve all decided we don’t want anybody to know which way it’s going.
“If you know I’m in the next series – or if you know I’m off – you’ll know how the story ends.”

Jenna and new Time Lord Peter Capaldi have been busy filming series eight and even embarked on a world tour.
When asked about the upcoming Christmas episode, Jenna added: “Because there’s a surprise we’ve got coming, it’s much better that nobody knows which way it’s going to go – so that’s where we’re trying to keep it at the moment… that’s all I should probably say.”
Jenna, who plays Clara Oswald in the show, continued: “It all becomes rather chaotic, as you can imagine, and that doesn’t work at all – it becomes quite impossible.”

However, Peter contradicted Jenna’s comments when he recently insisted that he was “not looking for a new assistant”.
“I don’t know where these rumours have started,” he said. “What I can say is she is absolutely fabulous.
“She’s been called upon to do things that I don’t think any other companion has had to do, to show a kind of emotional range and I think she’s done it absolutely brilliantly.”
