Viper Vault saw Jordan, from Burnley, and Shane Ritchie in two separate vaults trying to open ten safes using codes – but the pair had 60 snakes for company. Before the trial started shaking Radio 1 DJ Jordan, 30, said: "I've never been this scared in my life." But after encouragement from Shane he went ahead with the trial - and the pair won nine stars. Jordan started telling Shane codes to open his first safe, snakes entered the vaults, and Jordan screamed as Shane managed to open his first safe, get the star and started reading the code out to Jordan so he could open the next safe. (Image: Rex) Jordan kept thinking of his "happy place" and opened the next safe and got the star, he tarted telling Shane the codes for the next safe.
Jordan's screams got louder as more snakes entered his vault. Throughout the entire trial Jordan could be heard screaming "happy place, happy place, Turf Moor, Turf Moor". Eventually they both got into a rhythm and managed to open nine safes which meant nine stars and getting the ninth star with seconds to spare just as the klaxon sounded to end the Trial. Jordan laughed and afterwards told Ant and Dec: "My brother, who is a paratrooper said to me no matter how scared or cold you get to think of your happy place. "That is the most terrifying thing I've ever done in my life…ever." Ant and Dec threw shade at the Turf Moor strategy joking that Burnley FC were 'second to the bottom of the league and haven't won a game yet this season. The comedy due added that they 'wouldn't want to see his sad place'. Jordan and Shane's joy at success was shortlived when they saw what was on the menu for dinner – eel. Jordan said: "I've just been in a piggin vault full of snakes and get home to my castle and I've got eel. Eating eel – fish snakes, not fish cakes. "Nine stars for that, it was minging." Earlier in the day Jordan had made his campmates when Mo Farah was talking about winning gold on Super Saturday and the London Olympics.

Jordan confessed that he watched every moment of the 2012 Olympics but on Super Saturday he stupidly decided to watch a DVD and get a pizza and missed all the iconic moments. Speaking ahead of his time in the castle, Jordan said: ""I am at my happiest when I am on the Turf on a Saturday. "I go to the Talbot pub before the game, my grandma always brings me a pie from Oddies. I have a few drinks and go on the Turf and it is the best day ever. "I do it most weekends from London and it's worth it. I go on with my cousin and my brothers and my dad and my uncles. It is a great day." North has been supporting Burnley since childhood, his dad is from the town and his family are all Clarets supporters. For years he has watched his heroes from the stands, earlier this summer he got the opportunity to meet them, and spin the decks with his favourite player.
