Diversity star Jordan Banjo gets "15 DMs a day" from girls asking him to set them up with Perri Kiely
Jordan Banjo has revealed he gets 15 messages a day from girls asking him to set them up with Perri Kiely.
The 27-year-old dancer joked he is a personal matchmaker for his 24-year-old pal because female fans always send him messages asking to go on a date with his fellow Diversity star.
He told The Sun newspaper's Bizarre column: "I get ten to 15 DMs a day, girls sliding into my DMs all, not most, all asking to go out with Pel.
"I've become this matchmaker. Everyone goes, 'Hello, Jordan, how are you?' 'Oh that's nice', they go, 'Anyway, does Perri want to go on a date?' People love a bit of Perri."
However, although he is now over 6ft tall, Perri admitted people still see him as "that small kid" 11 years after Diversity won 'Britain's Got Talent'.
Perri explained: "On a regular basis, someone rolls down a car window like, 'Do they still throw you around? Are you that small kid?'."
Viewers still picture the 'Celebs Go Dating' star as the youngster Jordan and his brother Ashley Banjo threw in the air on stage.
He continued: "People will see pictures on Instagram of me, Jordan and Ash but these guys are giants. I'm 6ft 2in but am always gonna be that small guy."
Meanwhile, the two friends will start hosting the 'KISS Breakfast Show' from Monday (03.08.20), and the commute to the studio means they haven't been able to join the rest of the dance troupe in their "bubble" amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Jordan exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "At the moment, the boys are all on a summer run of shows, which is really good.
"They formed a bubble, so everyone was tested and that's wicked. But obviously me and Perri starting the show, we're not a part of the summer shows.
"So that's a weird one, I won't lie – chatting to the boys and hearing how rehearsals are going and seeing footage, it's a bit like... well, this is a weird thing to be on the outside of for once!"
