FITNESS guru Joe Wicks has given fans a look behind the scenes of his PE workouts for kids stuck at home, after 1.4million youngsters watched his class live on YouTube yesterday.

A source has told The Sun: 'Channel 4 have worked with Joe previously and were straight onto him once they saw he was going to be hosting live workouts daily.

Following the announcement that schools would be shut to stop the spread of coronavirus, The Body Coach vowed to be the nation's PE teacher and host daily sessions for children.

Joe Wicks is reportedly in talks for his own Channel 4 show during the coronavirus crisis.

The 30-minute classes will be streamed every morning at 9.00am GMT.

'Nothing is signed yet but they are all hopeful something will work out'.

Joe used to host Joe Wicks: The Body Coach on Channel 4, which aired for two seasons in 2018.

In a short 15-second teaser sent out by HP, a slight glimpse of the new device is shown along with a tagline of "No compromises". However, there really hasn't been a ton of excitement around Windows Mixed Reality headsets so far - at least amongst consumers.

Joe Wicks revealed he has been approached by Channel 4.

Of the classes, Jane reported: 'At the end, we feel happier, livelier and better equipped to take on yet another day in COVID-19 lockdown.

To tune into Joe's live workouts, head to YouTube and search "The Body Coach TV" where you'll see all of Joe's videos including his daily P.E sessions.

"I'm going to be your PE teacher for the nation which I thought was just going to the United Kingdom, but actually has turned out to be so much bigger", Wicks, who has 1.17 million subscribers to his YouTube channel, said at the start of the class which he will run every week day.

"It's a workout specifically designed for kids".

"I'm going to be doing everything I can, I'm adapting them".

"I've got mums, dads and even grandparents having a go, there's no equipment and you can do it in your living room". "I'm going to get your kids moving, fit and energized, positive and optimistic".
