Burnley are mocked as contestant names Turf Moor his ‘Happy Place’ on I’m A Celeb

Burnley are mocked as a contestant names Turf Moor as his ‘Happy Place’ on during Monday night’s episode of hit show I’m A Celeb on ITV.

I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is back for another year, but it’s still throwing up the trials and tribulations no matter the location.

The show have been forced to move from their usual home in Australia to a castle in Wales due to the coronavirus pandemic preventing them from flying out.

Radio 1 presenter Jordan North was put to the test in one of the first bushtucker trials, being locked underground and with snakes as he tries to win meals for camp.

He self-confesses himself to being neurotic, terrified of snakes and confined spaces, so being stuck in a coffin-like vault while reptiles were released to slither around him was his idea of Hell on Earth.

He and the other loser of the first public vote, EastEnders star Shane Richie, had to work together to unlock safes and release stars to ensure quality meals for the eight others in ‘camp’.

However, during many of his high pitch screams, he is heard calling Burnley’s Turf Moor stadium his ‘happy place’ on the show – prompting a response from the club on Twitter.

North is a big Clarets fan and entered ‘The Viper Vault’, but quite visibly didn’t enjoy his time doing it and was picked up saying “Happy place, happy place, Turf Moor. You’re at Turf Moor and you’re winning.”

“Oh, that’s a big one,” he screamed and begged his comrade to speak up. “SHANE! TALK TO ME! SHANE!”

Remarkably he managed to overcome his fears and open the safe to retrieve four stars; he and Shane won nine stars between them.

The almost broken Jordan said afterwards: “It was the most scariest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I feel like crying.”

Hosts Ant and Dec claimed that he was the most terrified contestant in 20 seasons of the ITV show, which deserves some sort of award of its own.

He had already been sick days prior after facing his fears with heights and abseiling down a cliff. and retrieving bags

Burnley forward Jay Rodriguez got in on the fun and applauded North for getting nine stars in the trial, as well as referencing his ‘happy place.’

Tottenham Hotspur, however, posted a clip of Son Heung-min’s header from their 1-0 win at Turf Moor last month.

Supporters and clubs up and down the nation couldn’t help but take the mickey in whilst others loved the 30-year-old’s dedication to his hometown side.
