Jordan, who earned his airwave stripes at Blackpool Pleasure Beach’s in-house radio station before going on to Rock FM, said he acted “stupidly” before having his collar felt by a sergeant from Lancashire Road Police.

He said “Sgt John” was “quite firm but was also really nice and understanding”, and added in his tweet to the traffic cop unit: “Please tell him thanks for being a nice bloke and helping a very shook up/idiot driver!”

An officer replied: “Thanks @jordannorth1 - you quickly corrected your error,” before warning: “Just goes to show we are out looking!”

It wasn't immediately clear where - or when - Jordan was pulled over.

Most Twitter users saw the funny side of the 29-year-old's mishap, however.

One joked it happened on the M65, which links Blackburn to Burnley, where Jordan grew up.

@ohheylauren_ said: "Oh my goodness!! Hope you're going the right way back to London and won't end up in Kettering again. Safe journey! X"

And @martintheaker referred to Jordan's beloved Burnley FC and asked: "If you get three points, can you convert them to Premier League points? #UTC"
