Jordan North is to host a new physical challenge series for BBC Three.

The 32-year-old DJ - who is known for hosting shows on BBC Radio 1 - is currently filming new reality show 'Warrior Island’ on an exotic island, which will see eight young people cut off from the modern world in a month-long programme in an effort to improve their mental and physical health.

Jordan was runner-up on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' in 2020 and explained that he has tried to "push himself" ever since throwing up on the side of a cliff on the show.

Jordan said: "Nearly two years ago, in front of the nation, I was sick on the edge of a cliff and everything changed forever - from there I pushed myself out of my comfort zone and I haven’t looked back since. Which is why I love this show. We're pushing eight young people well beyond their comfort zones to become stronger in body and mind to help turn their lives around."

Each of the eight contestants will be paired with experts in a specific of fitness and health - known as Warriors - who will mentor and push them every step of the way.

Each Warrior will display a unique set of skills - from MMA fighters to yogis, personal trainers to Olympians - and an individual approach they hope will push their trainees out of their comfort zone and help them overcome the problems they are facing in their life.

The 10-part series is set to air on BBC Three and iPlayer in early 2023.
