The video began with Sean congratulating the Radio 1 DJ as he told him: ‘Hey Jordan, gaffer here, just to say hello and well done.
‘I think you’ve been terrific on the show, happy place Turf Moor by the way, there’s a bit of work to be done to make it a happy place at the moment, could do with a result or two.
‘You’ve been terrific on the show, my daughter Alicia has kept me up to speed when I’ve missed stuff.’

Sean went on to invite football fan Jordan to the stadium, as he added: ‘I’ll look forward to seeing you when we get you into Turf Moor eventually.
‘And beyond all of that, I think the work you’ve done behind the scenes that people may or may not know, is raising money for Pendleside Hospice and also the Burley FC foodbank, which is tremendous.’

While TV host Vernon Kay came third.

‘The journey I came on. I was scared of everything. Now, I feel like I can take – not everything – but more things.’
