Fitness coach Joe Wicks gives workout fans PE-ek behind scenes”

With coronavirus sweeping the United Kingdom and shutting down schools, millions of children are on lockdown in their houses, missing out on school lessons - including physical education.

Last week PM Boris Johnson announced that all schools would close in a bid to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 33-year-old is said to be on the verge of signing a deal with Channel 4 to host a live training show, with the BBC also looking to join Wicks.

"It is a training specially designed for children".

Parents, grateful to Wicks for helping their offspring burn off some energy on what was for many the first day of school closures, posted pictures and comments on social media of children taking part.

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

As he performed the workout on his Youtube channel, Wicks explained why he was wearing a black support brace around his hand and assured that it would not affect him delivering a routine every weekday.

'His YouTube streams have been watched in their droves, so they have offered him a deal to host a daily show for them which would be aired to the nation to get kids, and adults, moving every morning.

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

Speaking to MailOnline recently, Joe said, "I disturbed Channel 4 for two years to do a show and they kept saying", We can't do it, Joe. "We haven't got the budget".

"It's hard not being able to go for a coffee or a walk, things that I normally do, but we stay positive, I'm an optimistic guy, I know we're going to get through this".

He added lockdown is "going to be tough", admitting: 'I've got two babies and a decent size living room.

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.
