With the annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards taking place in less than two weeks’ time (eep), we sat down with Diversity’s Jordan and Perri – the hosts of the UK version of the show to talk all things slime, fashion, and – of course – McDonald’s.
Hey guys! So the KCAs are coming up – what can we expect from the show?
Jordan: Well this is our second year as the UK hosts and last year was so amazing that we think you guys can look forward to a great show, you’ve got all the big celebrities and obviously slime!
Perri: I think the KCAs just get bigger and better every year, so this should be a show to remember.
Not many of us have actually been covered in the slime used by Nickelodeon – how would you describe it?
Perri: I’m the only one out of the two of us to get slimed, and I’ve got to say it took me about five years to get it all out of my hair! But yeah it was super fun.
Jordan: I’m still very jealous of Pel! How can only one of us be slimed? It’s just not fair!
If you could slime anyone in the world, who would it be and why?
Jordan: I’m going to say myself… come on Nickelodeon, help me out here! It’s about time!
Perri: I’m going to do Jord a favour and say him as well.
We love your fashion sense. Who would you consider your fashion icons?
Jordan: I think Pel definitely considers me his fashion icon. It’s a gift and a curse to be this fashionable you know…
Perri: Shut up Jordan! I’d say we both like how Joey Essex dresses, he’s got a really cool style. Kanye West as well.
Can you tell us where you got one item from your wardrobe?
Perri: Topman and ASOS. That’s pretty much our whole wardrobes.
Jordan: I have to shop at ASOS, being this crazily tall has its drawbacks! Most clothes in any shop are literally a belly top or three-quarter lengths on me. ASOS have a Longline section which saves my life.
How would you describe your fashion style?
Perri: Hmmm… Swaggy.
Jordan: Pel, please don’t ever say that again.
Perri: Just ourselves, I suppose. If I like something then I’ll wear it.
Jordan: I’m just trying to find clothes long enough…
There are a lot of new artists about. Who are you currently loving?
Jordan: I say it every time – Ed Sheeran.
Perri: Definitely Ed Sheeran!
What do you guys get up to on your time off?
Perri: If we’re not filming or performing, we’re in the studio training.
Jordan: Yeah, any days we get off we spend rehearsing and training with the rest of the boys.
Beside the KCAs, what can we expecting from you two and Diversity in 2015?
Jordan: We have a new Diversity tour starting in October which we’re really excited about.
Perri: Plus us two will hopefully be doing a lot more with Nickelodeon throughout the year.
What’s your favourite thing on the menu at McDonald’s?
Jordan: Well, as dancers we don’t eat stuff like that… No, I’m lying. Double cheeseburger.
Perri: Twenty nuggets.
You’re about to put on the sorting hat. Which Harry Potter house are you crossing your fingers for?
Perri: Gryffindor! It’s Harry’s house!
Jordan: I’m going for Hufflepuff. Bless them, nobody ever talks about them.
The 2015 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards will be shown on Nickelodeon on March 29 at 5pm.
