Jordan North has appeared on Alan Carr’s podcast to educate the comedian about Burnley’s most popular attractions and explain the ones he has visited.

The Burnley radio DJ appeared on Alan Carr’s ‘Life’s a Beach’ podcast, which was posted earlier this week, to talk about the local attractions as well as his new television show.

He also talked about a popular Burnley tipple, Bene bombs, and also discussed the dogging ‘myth’ surrounding the Singing Ringing Tree.

On the episode, Alan said: “So listen – you’re from Burnley and very proud of Burnley, big fan of the Clarets.

“Turf Moor… that’s your happy place, which I am sure you’re sick to death of talking about.

“I’m gonna list some of [Tripadvisor’s] top attractions in Burnley.”

Alan mentioned Towneley Hall, Queen’s Street Textile Museum and Thompson Park – all of which the proud Burnley lad claims to have visited.

Alan explained: “Now this is a weird one for me – the Singing Ringing Tree. I went on Tripadvisor and it mainly has five star reviews.

“Gorgeous walk up there, lovely views. It did have one star review though which said ‘a lot of dog muck and it never sang – which I’m guessing is because it wasn’t windy.

“That’s unfair,” they both agreed.

Jordan added: “There’s a bit of a myth – I don’t know if it’s true, but before they built that it was a dogging spot.

“That’s how I know it,” Alan joked. “There’s graffiti there which says ‘Alan came here’… boy, I was singing that night.

Jordan also mentioned a popular Burnley attraction which didn’t make Tripadvisor’s list and that is The Miner’s Social Club on Plumbe Street.

He said: “The Miner’s Social Club is a big attraction – write that down because they sell the most Benedictine in the world.

“It’s a French liqueur and now it’s a big drink in Burnley. We don’t have jaeger bombs, we have ‘Bene Bombs’.

“If you’ve got an upset stomach or sore throat it’s the best thing ever.”

On the podcast, Jordan also talks about his new ITV show ‘destination wedding’, a travel show where Jordan stars alongside Beverley Callard.  

Jordan explained: “[Beverley and I] just hit it off in the [I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here] Castle.

“If you would have said to me when I was 10-years-old, watching Corrie with my mum, that one day I would go on a road trip with Liz MacDonald I never would have believed you.”

He also talked about his time on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here in 2020 and explained the only reason he participated is because it was located in Wales.

He said: “When on a flight I’m usually off my face on valium because I’m terrified of flying.

“I wouldn’t have been able to do the Australian one, which is why it was a bit of a blessing that it was in Wales.

“It’s given me a new lease of life that show, it was the best thing I’ve done. If I can get in a coffin full of snakes I can get on a plane.

“I’ve booked a flight to New York which is quite a big thing for me.”
