BURNLEY lad Jordan North is one of the campmates on this year's I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! - and has already made quite a name for himself on the show.

After the day three, Jordan is the bookies favourite to win the show with Shane Ritchie the second favourite.

Jordan has already put Burnley on the map after finding his happy place at the football team's home ground, Turf Moor, repeating it during a trial with Eastenders star Shane Ritchie.

In the first episode, he and four other camp mates had to abseil down a cliff edge to get camping gear for themselves and one other celebrity.

North admitted to having a fear of heights in his entrance video, and after being told he would have to abseil, he vomitted on top of the cliff.
