Jordan North (ITV)

Jordan North has said he went through the worst pain he’d ever felt getting waxed for I’m A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!

The radio DJ had a full chest and back wax before going on the ITV reality show and said he struggled so much that the beauty therapist had to give him something to bite down on.

“I've never felt pain like it,” he was seen telling the other contestants during Saturday’s round-up show.

“She's doing my chest and I'm screaming and she's going, ‘Ssshhhh I have clients downstairs’.”

North – who vomited with nerves during his first challenge on the programme - went on: “It got that bad, I was screaming that much, you know that pasting stick that they use to put it on? She put it in my mouth and went, ‘Here, bite this’."

Fellow camper Vernon Kay chimed in: “Now you know what Jordan's like. He doesn't like anything. He's scared of anything and everything and for him to personally volunteer to go and get a waxing...

“Obviously, no one told him what it would involve because knowing Jordan he wouldn't have done it."

North added: "I had to buy aloe vera cream and everything. Never again will I have a wax.”

The star also told how his mum used to help him with his body hair.

“I knew I needed to leave home when my mum was Veeting my back and we couldn't find the scraper so she rang my dad at work and she just used an old Blockbuster card, and I knew there and then I need to move out!" he said.
