I’m A Celeb’s Jordan North tipped to be ‘megastar’ after stint on ITV show

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! favourite Jordan North will become a "megastar" after his stint on the show, says co-star and chum Beverley Callard.

After the public had voted the northern-born lass for a record amount of terrifying Bushtucker Trials, Coronation Street star Beverley predicted that the 30-year-old radio star was destined for great things.

Jordon, who is currently a successful Radio 1 host, hasn't always had the best luck when it came to his work and revealed on the show that he'd been sacked on numerous occasions.

Due to his gullible nature, the Burnley FC super fan found himself at the crux of the joke at a number of jobs over the years.

Speaking about his first ever job after school, as a bricklayer he recalled the moment his peers played a hilarious prank on him.

He said: "I was awful, they used to throw spanners at me and everything.

"Once, we were doing maintenance in a factory and I was looking for the ladder for the skirting board for about an hour.

"I went up to this man like, 'Have you got a ladder for the skirting board?', he goes, 'No, no you need to go and ask Dave'."

His career in the trade ended in tears after his mum was annoyed that he'd only been paid "£60 for a week" and gave his chiefs a stern talking to, eventually leading to his dismissal.

Turning the tides, he decided to take a different career tact and took the restaurant root, starting out as a pot washer.

It seemed being at the centre of the banter didn't end with his former job as his restaurant colleagues decided to send him on a mission to source some "salmon legs".

In spite of the radio host confessing that he could pull out all of the stops when it came to interviewing, there was one instance when a night on the town got out of hand ruptured his chances.

Speaking about the interview with the Holiday Inn, he added: "I was sh**faced."

"My brother was going to Iraq [in the Army] and he said, 'It’s my big night out, everybody's coming'.

"We got back at about four [in the morning]. I think I had an hour's sleep. I just remember talking absolute…."

Giving advice to those considering an alcohol fuelled evening before an interview, he urged: "Do not go out the night before."

Now a firm fixture on the BBC 1 show and becoming 6/4 favourite to win the ITV show, it seems his career luck is changing.
