Jordan North on his time in the castle
I'm A Celeb's Jordan North has revealed he was a last minute replacement.
The radio DJ told his pal, as quoted by MailOnline, "I was last minute."
"I call to say, "maybe next year not this year," and then I got a call two weeks later saying, "do you wanna do it?""
""Someone's dropped out.""
"Then I had two days to do everything: Medical, photos, psychiatrists etc. 48 hours."
"It very nearly never happened," Jordan admitted.
He ended up becoming a fan favourite, coming in second place on the show.
Life in the castle
Jordan went on to chat about what life was like in the I'm A Celeb castle.
He admitted he worried, "Am I gonna have a career at the end of this?"
"It was the best but the toughest three weeks of my life."
"We were freezing, we were starving. I thought the hunger would get better but it got worse."
"You're just waiting around. In the jungle you could sunbather but you can't in Wales."
Jordan confessed, "We were so bored."
The radio host revealed he set himself a list of rules before taking part in the show.
"Don't pick your nose, don't be swearing, don't trump - after three days I was doing all three."
"I don't know what they've shown."
The Viper Vault trial
Jordan went on to reveal it took him a whole hour before he agreed to get into the Viper Vault for his first bushtucker trial.
"It took me an hour to get in and I wouldn't have done it if it wasn't for Dec. I was in a blind panic."
"I went off set, there's people following me and I'm thinking, 'I can't do this show.'"
Jordan got in and out of the vault numerous times before he finally did the trial.
He said he had planned to shout, "I'm a celebrity get me out of here," the minute he saw the first snake.
