I’m A Celebrity fans have been left gutted as Radio 1 DJ Jordan North shaved his beard off.

The star opted to shave off his facial hair during Wednesday night’s episode, but fans of the show have since expressed their sadness at the action.

Talking in the Telegraph, Jordan explained: “I know my mum and grandma will be watching it going, ‘You could have had a shave, you scruffy sod!’”

The DJ then asked the campmates to close their eyes as he made his big return to camp with a goatee moustache, joking he was a new campmate called Jeff. Laughs echoed around the camp as a result as he took on the new persona.

As Jordan went to shave the rest of it off, Mo joked: “There’s only room for one goatee and that’s mine.”

He later emerged from the bathroom completely clean shaven and fans flocked to Twitter to share their thoughts.

A third added: “Human shrek or Jordan North? I can’t tell the difference,” followed by sad face emojis.

Others compared Jordan’s fleeting Jeff look to that of Tiger King star Joe Exotic saying: “Anyone else think Jordan’s new look before he shaved it all off looked like Joe the tiger King.”

While another said he looked like Hollywood star Ewan McGregor’s brother, writing: “Ewan McGregors brother or what !!”

When he’s not on the hit ITV reality show Jordan’s cheery voice can be heard on Radio 1 from 11am-1pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, and he’s become somewhat of a fan favourite since taking up the position.

Discussing taking part in I’m A Celebrity Jordan said: “I’ve been watching this show ever since it started, I can remember Kerry Katona doing it all those years ago!
