I'm A Celeb's Jordan claims Prince Harry left pal 'annoyed' after quip over his height

Prince Harry is said to have "annoyed" Jordan Banjo's Diversity co-star with a cheeky comment on his height.

The Duke of Sussex met the successful dance group as part of his Invictus Games charity event, where he reportedly took the time to have a chat with the dancers.

Yet it didn't go down too well with I'm A Celebrity star Jordan's bandmate Perri Kiely, who was just a young teen when he joined the group.

Jordan recalled the encounter saying: "I'm pretty sure he said something along the lines of 'Ahh, you've grown!'

"Then he said 'You must get so annoyed with people saying that to you'.

"And [Perri] cracked up because that's all people said to him every single day," he told the Express.

Perri, 27, was part of the dance group which won the third series of Britain's Got Talent in 2009 and went on to perform at the Royal Variety Performance.

The young dancer, Jordan, his brother Ashley and a selection of others comprised the dance act Diversity.

Since winning the show, Perri had a huge growth spurt, leaving Harry to marvel at the transformation.

Despite the royal's teasing comments, Jordan assured them there are absolutely no hard feelings between himself, Perri, and the royals.

"Harry's always been like the coolest dude to us, positive, telling us how much he loves Diversity," he added.

When questioned on Harry's decision to leave the Royal Family and move to the USA, he stated: "I think everyone should just be happy, man."

The Mirror has contacted Prince Harry's representatives for comment.

Jordan has just welcomed his third child with wife Naomi Courts.

The Diversity star, 30, took to Instagram to share the happy news and announce his baby boy's unusual name.

He posted a black and white photo of Naomi cuddling their new arrival as Jordan, wearing a silver bracelet on his wrist, held the baby's finger.

In a gushing tribute to his wife, Jordan captioned the post: "Atreus Funso Banjo 20.04.2023 8lb 8oz.

"I’m so proud of you @naomibanjo, my angel, my wife and the most incredible mum to our children, thank you for our 3 beautiful children, a gift I can never repay, I love you."

Their youngest son joins older siblings Cassius, four, and three-year-old Mayowa.

The couple announced the happy news that they were expecting in October and Jordan is currently appearing in the pre-recorded I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! in South Africa.

Ahead of the arrival of their third bundle of joy, Jordan opted to have a vasectomy done, also known as male sterilisation.
