Jordan Wylie MBE is a former soldier, bestselling author, extreme adventurer and also one of the stars of Channel 4’s BAFTA nominated shows Hunted and Celebrity Hunted.
Growing up on the largest council estate in the UK, Jordan left school early with no qualifications to his name but took the life-changing decision to join the British Army at 16-years-old. He served for ten years and saw Operational Service in Northern Ireland and Iraq where he specialised in military intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance operations. On leaving the Army, Jordan entered the world of Maritime Security, making headlines after armed Somali pirates boarded a ship that he was protecting and Jordan found himself in charge and forced to make critical decisions for the safety of his crew. It was this experience that led Jordan to write “Citadel: The True Story of One Man’s War Against the Pirates of Somalia”, which became a bestseller on publication in 2017.
