I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! is back, and we finally have something to help us through lockdown nights. So far, much of the series has consisted of watching celebrity Jordan North throw up, watching him freak out and watching him chant "happy place" over and over.

ICYMI, the show started on Saturday and basically opened with the Radio 1 host vomiting at the idea of abseiling down the cliff. That led to him being voted to do last night's trial (oh British public, you jokers) and having a major freak-out at the idea of sharing a coffin with snakes.

His reaction was so extreme, in fact, that some viewers weren't quite sure if he was being 100 percent real.

However, according to Jordan's friend and 'Help I Sexted My Boss' co-presenter William Hanson, what we're seeing is genuine fear.

He told Metro.co.uk: "One person put really weirdly, 'I’ve got a really good radar for BS', well, you don’t because Jordan is being genuine," William insisted.

Referring to last night's snake trial, he added: "There was no level of acting. With Jordan in general, what you see is what you get. He wears his heart on his sleeve, there is no veneer. He’s so happy go lucky, he’s a people pleaser as well. He’s coming across exactly like the Jordan I met 10 years ago."

And apparently, Jordan's fears of enclosed spaces are so bad that they've been affecting him IRL, too.

"I’ve tried to get Jordan in a lift to do two flights and he absolutely point-blank won’t do it," said William.

"I used to live in a property many years ago on the 17th floor and he’d always walk up all 17 flights because he absolutely didn’t want to do the lift."

Looks like we're in for a dramatic series, then!
