Jordan North may be the host of BBC Radio 1's drivetime show, however the 33-year-old has admitted that his beginnings in local radio didn't run so smoothly thanks to his partying ways.
The York-born broadcaster told OK!.co.uk in an exclusive chat that he once fell asleep live on the radio after a night of clubbing in his early twenties.
"I was still trying to go out every weekend and get drunk with a weekend job at a station called Rock FM in Lancashire," Jordan said. "I went out and walked out of this club at 4am, but was on air at 6.
"I fell asleep in the studio. That's probably my biggest on-air blunder – falling asleep during a show. How have I still got a job in broadcasting?"
Jordan recently released his first book with etiquette expert William Hanson – Help I Sexted My Boss – based on the pair's podcast of the same name.
"It's funny – it's with a pinch of salt, a cheeky wink. It's a bit tongue in cheek," he said. "It's a perfect Secret Santa present, even if they've never listened to the podcast."
The presenter co-wrote the book with his fellow podcast host William, and the pair make sure to cover different areas of expertise throughout.
When listeners write in about music festivals or house parties, that is completely Jordan’s area. I’ve been to a nightclub only once in my life,” William says, with Jordan adding, “William knows more about his napkins and cutlery. I’m more nights out, stag dos.”
Jordan took on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! during its COVID era, coming in second place to the first Queen of the Castle Giovanna Fletcher.
He has since appeared on Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway as a segment host, and presented Top of the Pops, BBC Three's Project Icon: The UK's Next Music Star and Go Hard or Go Home.
As for whether he would tackle reality TV again, Jordan said he would never completely rule it out. “I would never say no to anything because you never know, in a couple of years, you might be skint,” he said.
