I'm A Celebrity 2020 LIVE – Jordan North set for tonight's trial as Vernon's 'name-dropping' is annoying fans

November 19, 2020

I'M A Celeb viewers are getting ready to watch camp mate Jordan North do ANOTHER trial – this time in a horrifying underground tunnel.

The Radio1 DJ was 5/1 to do the most trials before the show – however, after he threw up at the thought of going down a cliff and his snake pit panic attack, he is now odds on 8/15 favourite.

It seems while many fans are enjoying watching the 30-year-old squirm, lots want his misery to end.

One of his fans wrote on Twitter: "Jordan is doing the trail again?! c’mon people. Give him a break!"

Another campmate viewers are getting tired of is name-dropper extraordinaire, Vernon Kay.

The TV presenter has been criticised by viewers for name-dropping after boasting about meeting Hollywood star multiple times.

One viewer jokingly tweeted: "Is Vernon Kay paid by the name drop?"

    RUTHIE DOESN'T THINK SHE'S SLEPT

    How does she not know?

    I'm usually aware when I'm awake but what do I know, I don't sing and dance for a living so maybe she's different.

    ANT AND DEC ARE LOVING THIS CASTLE

    You'd think being in the cold and dark UK would affect them more than this but they're both thrilled.

    Can't think why – it's not their castle.

    And it's not like there's anything else to do.

    ANT & DEC + MARIAH = THE CHRISTMAS NO.1 YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU NEEDED

    The Geordie duo accidentally let slip their “top secret gruelling schedule” ahead of tonight's episode of I'm A Celebrity…

    According to the whiteboard it included a phone call with Mariah at 7.30 to discuss their “collab”.

    Elsewhere there seemed to be time for “rectal” temperature checks and trumpet lessons.

    Jokers.

    I’M A CELEB’S BEVERLEY CALLARD DROPS THE F-WORD LIVE ON-AIR AS SHE CONSOLES JORDAN – BUT ANT & DEC DON’T APOLOGISE

    In case you missed it, Bev Callard tried giving Jordan a motivational pep talk last night after he got picked to do yet another challenge.

    However, the potty-mouthed actress ended up dropping an F-bomb instead – this is a family show, Bev!

    Jordan was visibly gutted to have been voted by the public to do his third Bushtucker Trial in a row at the end of last night's episode.

    Beverley, 63, was sitting beside him as his name was announced and quick to offer her comfort.

    As the other campmates flocked around, the ex Coronation Street star spoke softly to Jordan – telling him that it was a good thing viewers wanted him to do the gruesome tasks.

    She said: “They want to see more of you, this is going to make you a f***ing megastar.”

    However, nobody at ITV appeared to pick up on it, and Ant and Dec did not issue an apology as they usually would.

    TUT, TUT!!

    CASTLE BROMANCE BREWING BETWEEN VERNON KAY AND MO FARRAH

    While it doesn't look like there are any potential romances this year for the campmates (although could anyone beat the dizzy heights of Katie Price and Peter Andre in 2014?) there is one adorable friendship growing already.

    TV presenter Vernon Kay and Olympian Mo Farrah have already struck up a strong bond and bromance, with Vern telling his pal that he would “he’d do a trial to get him sticky toffee pudding”.

    Awww!

    I’M A CELEBRITY AJ PRITCHARD’S TEAM ARE URGING FANS TO VOTE FOR HIM TO DO TRIALS

    The team behind professional dancer AJ Pritchard have taken to Twitter to urge fans to vote for him to do the trials.

    Could it be his cheeky brother Curtis who wants to see his older sibling get stitched up?

    Someone on his side wrote on Twitter: “We feel like Aj is getting away with a nice break in the castle 🏰 at the moment! let’s see him get his sweat on by putting him up for the trails 😅🙌🏼 @imacelebrity”

    They then hilariously told his followers that they can get up to five free votes on the I’m A Celebrity app.

    Perhaps AJ will get his chance soon if Jordan stops hogging the show!

    I'M A CELEBRITY FANS THINK THE LOCATION SHOULD BE MOVED EVERY YEAR TO KEEP IT FRESH

    Viewers are loving the change of scenery in the castle this year and many are of the opinion the location should change every year to keep it fresh.

    One wrote: “I’m a celebrity should be in a new place each year – the jungle was getting boring but the change of scenery has given it a good makeover.”

    “Where can this go next year?,” wrote another.

    A quick poll of the office and we’re already considering the Arctic, Amazon Rainforest, some sort of swamp and perhaps a desert.

    Or it could go underground? The possibilities are endless.

    I'M A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! bosses were forced to call the police after they noticed the UFOs in the sky.

    Cops were called to Gwrych Castle in Wales after viewers began using the un-piloted gadgets to try and spot presenters Ant and Dec, along with the famous campmates.

    The local force has now issued a warning to anyone considering using a drone in the area around the castle, which is located in Abergele.

    North Wales Police tweeted: “We have engaged with a number of people flying or attempting to fly drones in the vicinity of Abergele and Gwrych Castle.

    “Please remember to follow the Drone Code and do not fly within 150 metres of a built up area.”

    JORDAN REALLY IS SCARED OF EVERYTHING

    Talkradio presenter Darryl Morris lived with Jordan North for two years and says that he isn’t putting on his fear of heights, lifts or snakes – he really is terrified of everything. 

    He said: “Jordan really is scared of pretty much everything.

    “On one occasion I scaled a 17 story building via the stairs with him because he wouldn't get in the lift. It's very, very, very real.

    “I mean he truly, truly hates heights and actually, I was worried that people might think that he was putting it on a bit, he was playing up to it, but what you saw with him throwing up straight away – you can't fake that!”

    “The thing is though, he's terrified of everything, but he's also very resilient. I think perhaps being terrified of everything for the whole of his life has made him very resilient and he'll throw himself into the trials.

    “He'll have a go, he'll absolutely have a go! He's going to be such good value for that.”

    ANOTHER CELEB ACCUSED OF CHEATING – BEV IS CALLED A FAKE VEGAN

    I'm A Celebrity star Beverley Callard has been slammed for eating butter – despite claiming to be vegan.

    Last night, the 63-year-old Coronation Street actress was accused of lying to cheat her way out of eating gross bits of animal in a BushTucker trial.

    But suddenly last night, Beverley was seen chomping down bread and butter that was won in the Coin Challenge.

    Pointing out that vegans don't eat any food derived from animals, one viewer said: “How did Beverly eat butter and bread if she’s vegan like I need verification it was vegan! Can’t even do a proper eating challenge.”
