Joe, better known as the Body Coach, broadcast an easy-to-follow 30 minute workout on his YouTube account at 9am this morning, with more than 806,000 families across the United Kingdom tuning in to exercise. Following this, it seems the big broadcasters are keen to snap him up for an exclusive daily show.

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.

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

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

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.

He took to his official Instagram account last week and explained his idea.

Using his The Body Coach TV Youtube channel, Wicks pledged to stream classes every day in order to "keep the nation fit and healthy", as schools across the United Kingdom shut in a bid to tackle the outbreak.

Complete with a warmup, workout and cool down, the 30-minute workouts are loved by the kids.

Since the schools closed, Joe has committed to give daily PE sessions to the children at 9 a.m. from Monday to Friday.

"It's not going to hold me back though, I'm not going to let you down, I'm going to be here every day".

"I'm going to take this over".

"I know it is hard, but we will all reconnect, so get up and move today".

The reason for him doing this?

Today's video has been watched by 1.8million people so far and thousands have taken to the comments section on YouTube to share their thoughts.

Joe Wicks is leading P.E lessons every day Monday to Friday.

"I really like Joe, he is really good at teaching me".

Another added: "Joining for the third time and it's still wonderful!"

It has been reported the first two days of his classes have been so popular that they have lowered homeworkers' internet speeds - seeing many call on television companies to air his classes on their channels in a bid to help speeds and produce fresh content for their networks.
