The money was raised in just three weeks thanks to sales of two unique t-shirts produced by Burnley Football Club in Jordan's honour.

Bearing the words 'happy place, happy place, Turf Moor,' the mantra Jordan used when faced with a trial during the show, sales of the tops soared as the club pledged to donate the proceeds to Pendleside Hospice, where he is an ambassador, and Burnley Community Kitchen.

A spokeman for Burnley Football Club said: "We are delighted that Jordan did so well in the show and it is fantastic that so much money has been raised for the hospice and foodbank.

"We are looking forward to welcoming Jordan back to Turf Moor very soon."

And the final total looks set to top £35,000, as the t-shirts are still on sale this week, and the club spokesman revealed a special limited edition version is also being produced.

Radio One DJ Jordan,who grew up in Burnley and attended St James, Lanehead Primary School, is a mad keen Clarets fan and he told presenters Ant and Dec he loved nothing better than being at Turf Moor with his family.
