Joe Wicks has been keeping millions of kids entertained and active in self-isolation thanks to his YouTube PE classes being run amid the coronavirus crisis.
With parents and children alike watching his videos every morning, new reports are claiming that he is in talks with Channel 4 to take it on to mainstream TV.
‘Channel 4 have worked with Joe previously and were straight onto him once they saw he was going to be hosting live workouts daily,’ a TV source told The Sun.
‘Nothing is signed yet but they are all hopeful something will work out.’
Metro.co.uk has contacted Joe’s reps and Channel 4 for comment.
In the meantime, Joe has more than a big enough audience – with celebs including Stacey Solomon, Coleen Rooney and Giovanna Fletcher revealing their children have been doing his exercise classes from home.
More than 1.5million people watched yesterday’s (Tuesday) class, with the 33-year-old vowing to keep up classes every weekday from 9am until schools have reopened.
He is also performing mini-classes on This Morning at 12pm to keep up motivation for those working from home who need a quick stretch.
‘It really is fun,’ the fitness guru told Phillip and Holly on the show ‘Little toddlers can do it, teens, parents, all get involved. Have fun, connect and interact through fitness and have an amazing day because of it.’
Joe is the latest star to put his expertise to work for those who are now self-isolating because of coronavirus.
Among the stars lending a hand are Noel Fielding, who is holding online art classes and Bake Off’s Candace Brown, who is holding food tech classes.
Sir Patrick Stewart is reciting poetry every day, David Walliams is releasing new audiobooks and Carol Voderman has lifted the paywall on her maths website The Maths Factor to teach classes there too.
Joe Wicks holds his exercise classes everyday at 9am on YouTube channel, BodyCoachTV.
