I’m A Celebrity: Who is Jordan North’s brother?

Jordan North mentioned his paratrooper brother during I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! episode 2. He said that in times of fear, his brother told him to “go to his happy place“. The whole nation now knows that Jordan’s happy place is Turf Moor – Burnley Football Club’s home ground.

Jordan’s brother, Ryan, is no ordinary guy. Not only has he trained as a paratrooper but he’s worked his way up to be a Sergeant.

Ryan, 33, is a Burnley FC fan like Jordan, however, the brothers have opted for very different careers. Following in the footsteps of their father, Graham, Ryan joined the army at 16 years old.

 

Their dad, Graham, served in the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment from 1982-2006.

Jordan described the show on Instagram as “a brutal, honest, and fascinating insight into the British Army’s most elite regiment“.
