Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway paid a surprise visit to Brum tonight (March 11) as the ITV show left a Birmingham racecourse worker in tears. Jordan North was sent to the theater ahead of a performance of Beauty and the Beast during his show’s weekly ‘happiest minute of the week’ segment – which celebrates those who have gone the extra mile to help others.

The BBC Radio 1 DJ and I’m A Celebrity star were in Second City to surprise Armani, who works in theater while caring for his mother and sister. He offered her a free vacation explaining that she deserved a getaway.

Armani was stunned by Jordan’s appearance at her workplace, covering her face with her hands as he announced, “You’re live on Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway.” The stunned theater worker replied, “No I’m not, you’re kidding!”

Jordan explained exactly why he was there to present her with an award, adding: “Besides looking after your mum and sister, she works here all the time, every weekend and every Christmas. We think you deserve a takeaway getaway.”

Arman burst into tears when he was handed an envelope with plane tickets inside. Local viewers were disgusted that they missed Jordan’s appearance in the city.

Matthew Foster wrote on Twitter: “If I had known @jordannorth1 was in Birmingham I would have gone out #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”

She said: “I too would go watch Beauty and the Beast live if I ran into Jordan North with a megaphone #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”

Isa Mutlib added, “No way @jordannorth1 is near my gym #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”

Ryan Glendenning added: “Jordan is in my hometown of Birmingham!!!!!! Hello Jordan #SaturdayNightTakeaway.”
