Burnley DJ, Jordan North, has spoken about an embarrassing moment he experienced at a restaurant while on his podcast’s live tour.

Speaking on his ‘Help I Sexted My Boss’ podcast, which he hosts alongside William Hanson, Jordan said he was mistaken as a server while enjoying a curry at an Edinburgh restaurant, shortly before a live show.

On the podcast William said: “If being a Radio DJ fails Jordan can always work as the ‘meeter and greeter’ at a curry house here in Edinburgh.”

Jordan, 32, said he bumped into a couple on the way to the toilet and thought they were fans of the podcast – but they mistook him for a member of staff.  

He said: “I was walking to the gentleman’s toilets and as I was going downstairs a couple walk in through the front door.

“I said ‘oh hi’ thinking they have obviously recognised me. It was a bit awkward and we were both just standing there.

“I was thinking ‘are you going to ask for a picture?’ so I just said: ‘Are you coming to see the [Sexted My Boss - Live] show tonight?’.

“They both just looked at each other then they looked at me and said ‘no, can we just have a table for two please?’."

Jordan said he was dressed “all black like the rest of the staff who worked there” and could easily have been mistaken for one of them. 

“I thought she recognised [me] from the world famous Sexted My Boss,” he said.

“I told her: ‘Oh I am sorry, I don’t work here I am a customer myself and walked off to the toilet.’

William laughed at his co-presenters embasrassing story and said: “You came back and said: ‘We need to drink up, we need to leave – and then she waved at you’.

“It is something that brought you back down to earth.”

In Help I Sexted My Boss - Live, Jordan and William attempt to solve the nation’s problems and dilemmas no matter how big or small.
