Last night, Jordan North took on The Viper Vault with Shane Richie on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! The BBC Radio 1 presenter revealed his biggest fear was coming into contact with snakes but after some stern words from his campmate, the pair completed the task. However, some viewers have accused Jordan of “faking” his terrified reaction.

When Shane and Jordan arrived at the trial, Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly explained what they’d need to do to win meals for camp. 

Immediately, Jordan appeared visibly shaken and required some support from Shane.

He confessed: “Genuinely I don’t think I’ve ever been this scared in my entire life.

“I don’t like flying and I feel nervous before I get on an aeroplane but this…”

Jordan explained he was claustrophobic and had an intense fear of snakes.

Shane revealed he wasn’t too keen on the trial either but convinced his campmate to give it a try. 

He said: “Even if we just get five stars, even if we just get a couple. Come on, you’re fine mate.”

“I can’t, I just can’t,” Jordan replied. “There’s f***ing snakes coming out of there and I’m claustrophobic, I can’t do it, I can’t do it. I can’t do it.”

After composing himself, Jordan agreed to do the trial and the pair achieved nine stars out of a possible 10.

Shane commented: “As soon as the vault closed I was expecting Jordan to say, I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!”

“That was the scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I feel like crying,” Jordan added.

However, some ITV viewers weren’t convinced and accused the contestant of “playing a game”.

One said on Twitter: “Sorry but Jordan knows exactly what he’s doing.. playing a game 100% #ImACeleb.”

“So done with the Jordan show. This guy is faking it for the fame. #ImACeleb #ImACelebrity,” another shared. 

“Is Jordan faking it or is he being for real? @imacelebrity #ImACeleb,” a third questioned. 

Someone else added: “This will become the Jordan show #ImACeleb.”

While another tweeted: “Not sure if I’m buying this Jordan..#ImACeleb.”

However, other viewers praised Jordan for facing his fears on the show.

One said: “#imaceleb you ever think Jordan signed up to help him overcome his fears and anxiety? Everyone saying he knew what he signed up for. That may be but you never know yourself how you will react until you are faced with it.”

“Jordan seems like a nice lad, shame he’ll keep getting voted to do trials, just so people can see him suffer. #ImACeleb,” a second wrote. 

“Jordan better win I’m a celebrity he’s the sweetest #ImACeleb #imacelebrity,” a third added.

I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Continues tonight on ITV at 9.15pm.
