I’m a Celebrity former contestants Vernon Kay and Jordan North have reunited at Gwrych Castle as part of BBC Radio 1’s Summer Breakout.
The duo wasted no time catching up as they dived straight into a scavenger hunt for clues to help free breakfast show presenter Greg James from his summer tour locked in a caravan.
It has been seven months since I’m a Celebrity came to an end in December when author and presenter Giovanni Fletcher was crowned Queen of the Castle.
BBC Radio 1 presenter Jordan North and TV presenter Vernon Kay both fought it out in the final after winning the viewers’ hearts, eventually coming second and third respectively.

Appearing on Radio 1’s Instagram stories, Vernon and Jordan are seen sat on benches outside Abergele’s impressive Gwrych Castle in the sunshine before shouting the trademark “I’m a celebrity, get me out of here!”
The pair go on to joke about the apparent “co-incidence” before Vernon adds: “Let’s go eat some deer testicles.”
Fortunately for him there are no gruesome eating challenges in sight as the pair pose by the famous red telephone box before Vernon is sent on a scavenger hunt for clues as part of BBC Radio 1’s Summer Breakout.
As part of the UK-wide tour Greg James has been locked in a campervan that has been converted into an escape room, and must work out passwords from his listeners and famous friends to help him break out in different locations.
At the Welsh castle Vernon was tasked with finding out what Ryan Reynolds, James Blake and Neil from the Inbetweeners have in common. But even after solving the riddle (the answer was Blake), it seems that wasn’t the password for Greg to escape, leaving him in the caravan as temperatures soar.
The pair both made it through to the final of I’m a Celebrity
Luckily, it seems Greg doesn’t mind as he took to his own Instagram profile to say: “I guessed we were going to come to this place and I’m so proud of myself for getting it, it’s the only thing I’ve got right so far this week.
“Next location, beautiful north Wales, the castle, the scene for the latest I’m a Celebrity of which Jordan was a contestant. And he was robbed as the runner up.
“But what I didn’t guess was the Vernon Kay part of it.”
As well as Jordan and Vernon, it seems the team at Gwrych Castle were also happy to see the stars back in Wales once again. After posting a video of the pair live on radio from their scenic location, the castle shared a picture of the two on its Facebook page, adding: “Jordan North & Vernon Kay are back together at Gwrych Castle!”
