Jordan North is "genuinely terrified" of everything, his Radio 1 colleague Nick Grimshaw has said.

So scared, in fact, that it has meant that he walks up eight floors each day to avoid the lifts at work.

Now that is dedication.

The DJ entered the I'm A Celebrity castle at the weekend but has already thrown up on the edge of a cliff and taken part in two Trials, with the third airing tonight.

Viewers watched last night as Jordan almost pulled out of a Trial with Shane Richie after discovering he would be locked into a 'vault' with dozens of snakes.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, Nick said that Jordan's fear wasn't an act.

Nick said: "Jordan, he is literally scared of everything. Last night when I found out that he was going to be locked in a vault with snakes, I was like, 'He won't do this.'

"Because he is even scared of the lifts at Radio 1!"

Host Susanna Reid exclaimed: "Is he? Does he not get into the lift at work?!"

"He won't get into the lift," Nick confirmed. "We're on the eighth floor so every day when he comes in, or every weekend, he'll walk up eight floors. The lifts are scary!

"So why he's gone on I'm A Celebrity, I don't know!"

*Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV
