The 33-year-old fitness guru - who is widely known as the Body Coach - launched a series of exercise classes this week for children to do from home to ensure they're still getting exercise despite United Kingdom schools closing last week due to the coronavirus, and the broadcaster is keen to get on board.

After the success of his awesome home workouts, Joe Wicks has revealed Channel 4 and BBC are keen to work with him.

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

It comes after Joe had a previous show with Channel 4 Joe Wicks: The Body Coach back in 2018.

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".

Yes! Joe has over 250 workout sessions on his YouTube channel, for people of all fitness levels, whether you're a novice, advanced, or a toddler.

It will also feature Tim McGraw , the Backstreet Boys and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong . The artists will use their personal cell phones, cameras and audio equipment during the broadcast.

The classes, broadcast daily at 9am on Youtube, see the personal trainer, 34, in a bid to become "the PE teacher for the nation" by making the nation happier, more energised, and more optimistic during the increased lockdown measures.

In a blog post about his workout videos, Wicks emphasizes that his workouts are intended for kids and their adult caregivers, adding that there's no equipment needed for the workouts: Only a device that has access to YouTube.

'So thank you, Joe Wicks.

"It's a 30-minute session for little kids right up to secondary school, get involved, have fun".

Kids may be cooped up in their houses due to the spread of coronavirus, but one online fitness coach in the U.K.is trying to help them get moving through a creative series of physical education classes.

Craig Shimmon, from Suffolk New College and Suffolk Rural, said: "What Joe Wicks is doing is great and as a college, we are keen to make sure everyone stays fit. I may give it a go too!" "You don't need a lot of room", Wicks wrote of the classes when he announced them on his Instagram page.
