Jordan North is being compared to a former I'm A Celebrity campmate… for all the wrong reasons.

On Monday's episode of the ITV reality show the Radio 1 DJ, 30, took on the Viper Vault challenge – alongside Shane Ritchie – which meant having to lie in a dark vault filled with snakes.

Quivering Jordan wailed and cried out as he admitted he was "scared" during the task, but a number of viewers did not feel sympathetic for him as they suggested that he was overacting – which led to them comparing him to 2006 contestant Gillian McKeith.

And die-hard fans who saw Jordan attempt his first task, last night, claimed to have noticed similarities between him and Gillian and called him "Gillian McKeith in disguise".

In the first trial of the 2020 series, Shane and Jordan managed to open nine vaults, which meant nine stars and nine out of ten meals for camp.

"I can't believe I did that!" said Jordan, after finding out the results from hosts Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
