Is Jordan North a Homosexual or A Heterosexual?

Of course, does someone’s sexuality matter in 2020? However, we don’t know if Jordan North is gay, straight, married, or single because he’s never spoken publicly about his personal life.

If you’re wondering if he’ll be looking for love while on the show, he’ll be disappointed to learn that he’ll be entering I’m A Celeb single, and that finding love is the last thing on his mind when he told the Radio Times, “I am single at the moment.” But that isn’t the reason I’m coming in!”
