The Radio 1 DJ took part in a Bushtucker trial with Shane Richie on yesterday’s instalment, which saw them both strapped down in separate confined boxes, that was slowly being filled with snakes.
The 30-year-old was seen screaming in panic throughout the scenes, and cried out for his ‘happy place’ – aka Burnley’s Turf Moor football ground.
Side note: ‘Happy place, happy place, Turf Moor’ will forever haunt our dreams.
Following on from the trial, Burnley captain Ben Mee offered his support to the ITV star, for his remaining time at Gwrych Castle, in a video shared with Metro.co.uk.
‘Hi Jordan, Ben Mee here. Just want to wish you all the best in the Jungle on behalf of all the players,’ he said.
‘You’ve been facing your fears really well. I think you’ve got a few more trials ahead of you by the looks of it, but we know you’ll be able to overcome them, and we’re looking forward to seeing you at your happy place in the near future.
‘All the best, mate.’
Despite the panic, Jordan and Shane smashed the task, eventually winning nine stars for the camp – where they were given eels for dinner.
We’re sure he’ll smash it.
Some fans watching on from home were left unsure of Jordan’s antics, suggesting that he is playing up for the camera with his fears.
However, his pal – and Help I Sexted My Boss co-presenter – William Hanson was having absolutely none of it, insisting he is being totally himself.
‘One person put really weirdly, “I’ve got a really good radar for BS”, well, you don’t because Jordan is being genuine,’ he told Metro.co.uk. ‘There was no level of acting.
‘With Jordan in general, what you see is what you get. He wears his heart on his sleeve, there is no veneer. He’s so happy go lucky, he’s a people pleaser as well.
‘He’s coming across exactly like the Jordan I met 10 years ago.’
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here continues tonight, at 9.15pm, on ITV.
