After sparking rumours that he was dating Coronation Street’s Beverley Callard, you might be wondering, is Jordan North married and who is his partner?

The BBC Radio 1 presenter apologised to the people of Preston in early September 2023 on his podcast ‘Help, I Sexted My Boss’ where listeners write in with their confessions and dilemmas. 

Jordan joined his fellow audience in revealing a story that took him back to his time as an Airbnb host where one of his friends had an unfortunate ‘accident’. 

Who is Jordan North?

Jordan North is a 33-year-old radio and TV presenter and co-host of the ‘Help, I Sexted My Boss’ podcast with friend William Hanson

Best known for his BBC Radio 1 drive-time show with Vick Hope, Jordan is also a familiar face on the TV after placing runner up in series 20 of I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! where fans fell in love with his Northern charm and quick wit. 

Despite rubbing shoulders with A-listers on the radio and TV, the York-born star confessed that he actually ‘doesn't think he's a celebrity’ at all and admitted, “I don't really lead a celebrity lifestyle.”

Jordan is also celebrated for his impressive challenges for charity. In 2022, he took on a brutal 100-mile rowing challenge for Comic Relief, raising a total of £796,584 for the charity.

‘Rowing Home with Jordan North’ saw the radio presenter row backwards from London to Burnley over a course of five days, for eight hours a day along the nation’s canals, pushing his physical and mental limits. 

Is Jordan North married and who is his partner?

Jordan confirmed his relationship status to the Radio Times back in 2021, saying, “I am single at the moment. But that is not the reason why I am going in [to I’m A Celebrity]!”. However, it appears, according to his social media, that Jordan is not married and is currently single. 

How did Jordan North get on Radio 1?

Obsessed with radio from a young age, Jordan pursued his passion at a local station in Preston as well as taking on a part-time gig on the airwaves at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. 

After graduating from Sunderland University (from which he was awarded an honorary fellowship, according to Jordan’s Instagram profile), Jordan worked on a number of shows such as Hits Radio, Capital FM and BBC Radio 5live, and eventually getting a weekend presenting stint in 2014 at BBC Radio 1. 

The self-proclaimed ‘supply teacher’ began filling in for long standing DJs like Greg James and Scott Mills before finally bagging a permanent slot with co-host Vick Hope in September 2020. 

The pair now host the Going Home slot from 3:30-6pm which is often filled with entertaining blunders that make the headlines.

Is Jordan North vegan?

No, Jordan is not vegan - something that was very apparent when he took on the first eating bushtucker trial and how to swallow plates of cow's tongue and sheep eye. His vomiting sparked Ofcom complaints. However, Jordan did take part in Veganuary - where people go vegan for the month of January.
