Hospice staff's 'good luck' message for ambassador Jordan who is star of 'I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here'
Staff at Pendleside Hospice are rooting for homegrown star Jordan North who is appearing in the hit TV reality show 'Im A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.'
One of the hospice's celebrity ambassadors, Jordan has helped to raise over £5,000 during lockdown with a series of monthly virtual quizzes.
A spokesman for the hospice said: "We are supporting Jordan like he supports the hospice.
"During lockdown Jordan's hilarious quizzes provided entertainment when we needed it most."
Although he was born in York Jordan grew up in Burnley and attended St James Lanehead Primary School. He is a keen Clarets fan and during his second bushtucker trial he repeated the phrase 'Happy place, happy place Turf Moor' to help him though the ordeal.
He won the hearts of the viewers, and also Burnley fans who are thrilled he is putting the town and the football club in the spotlight, which is helping to lift people's spirits.
Burnley FC captain Ben Mee has also recorded a special 'good luck' for Jordan on behalf of the team.
Now a Radio One DJ, Jordan has admitted he has a string of fears and phobias, including heights, snakes and insects and the show's presenters, Ant and Dec, have described him as the ' scaredest' contestant they have ever had.
But fellow contestants, including Olympic legend Sir Mo Farah, actor Shane Richie, and Coronation Street legend Bev Callard, have taken him to their hearts.
Bev described Jordan as 'kind and funny' and said she loved him already!
