I’m A Celebrity 2020: The cast’s WhatsApp group is affectionally named after Jordan North

I’m A Celebrity’s eliminated campmates have already made a special WhatsApp group to keep in touch once the series is over – and have named it after Jordan North.

EastEnders star Jessica Plummer, who was eliminated on Tuesday alongside Russell Watson, appeared on BBC Breakfast today to reveal the details of the group chat.

This included its sweet name inspired by the Radio One DJ, who tried to keep things positive.

She told Naga Munchetty: ‘I think everyone in camp adopted that mindset when they went down to do a trial, and we even now have a WhatsApp group for the people that have left called Happy Place!’

Jordan became known for his Happy Place mantra in the first days of the show, screaming it aloud while trying to overcome his fears during trials.

As he faced brutal trials including the Viper Vault – where he was buried alive in a room full of snakes, Jordan left hosts Ant and Dec, as well as viewers, in tears laughing at his bizarre coping mechanism.

He later revealed his Happy Place was Burnley FC’s football ground, Turf Moor, and that the idea stemmed from his brother Ryan, who’s in the Army.

Ryan, a sergeant in the second battalion of Parachute Regiment, also appeared on BBC Breakfast, to talk about what inspired him.

‘We had a chat prior to him going in and, bearing in mind as you’ve probably seen on the show, Jordan’s scared of his own shadow,’ he explained.

‘I told him he needs to go to his happy place and no matter what, get the dramatics out of the way and then smash the challenges, which he did really well.’

It was soon picked up by the rest of the celebrities, who were seen using it to get through their own times of stress, during trials, or when the mood was low in camp.

Tonight sees Ant and Dec crown the first King or Queen of the Castle ever, after the show’s team were forced to move production from the Australian jungle to a Castle in Wales.

Just Jordan, Giovanna Fletcher and Vernon Kay remain in the competition, with the other nine campmates – currently living a more comfy life in a luxury resort just down the road – given the boot through the course of the past week.

Voting is now open on the I’m A Celebrity app to choose your winner, with the results being announced tonight.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! airs tonight at 9pm on ITV.
