Video: Burnley FC captain sends 'good luck' video message to 'I'm A Celebrity' star Jordan North

Burnley FC captain Ben Mee has recorded a special 'good luck' video message for Radio One DJ Jordan North, a mad Clarets fan.

In the message Mee says he is sending the 'good luck' message to Jordan, who grew up in Burnley, on behalf of all the players.

He praises Jordan (30), who has already taken part in three bush tucker trials, for 'facing his fears.'

Mee also says the team are looking forward to welcoming him back to Turf Moor which Jordan refers to repeatedly as his 'happy place' to get him through the ordeal of the trials.

Last night viewers watched Jordan take part in the ''Frights of the Round Table' eating challenge with fellow contestants Vernon Kay and Bev Callard.

And Jordan certainly earned his stars by tucking into three 'dishes' including a goat's eye, a sheep's penis and a cow's tongue!

Describing the challenge as 'absolutely vile' Jordan was almost sick at one stage but he managed to keep himself in check to help the trio earn 10 stars and a meal of quail for the camp.

Jordan, who attended St James Primary School in Lanehead, is winning the hearts of viewers and fellow camp mates, including Bev Callard who described him as 'kind and funny' and told viewers 'I just love him.'

But in a twist kept secret from the camp mates, the duo then revealed to viewers that two new contestants, opera singer Russell Watson and actress and singeer Ruthie Henshall, would be tackling the challenge before joining the camp.
