Don't worry, I got you.

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

"Nothing is signed yet, but they all hope something will work out".

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

It comes after Joe had a previous show with Channel 4 Joe Wicks: The Body Coach back in 2018. "It is also good for mental health in these tough times", Crossley said.

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

Joe said of his daily YouTube sessions: "In the end, we feel happier, more alive, and better equipped to face another day in COVID-19 lockdown".

UK's Johnson says 405,000 have volunteered to help health service
To contain the spread of the novel coronavirus , more than 158,000 people have signed up to help Britain's National Health Service.


Over two million people tuned into his YouTube channel "The Body Coach TV" for the first free 30-minute session on Monday (23.03.20), and Joe first thought of the idea last week after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced schools would close on Friday (20.03.20) to help limit the spread of the respiratory illness. "We might not be able to do your PE lessons next week, but will Joe Wicks do instead?"

At the start of Monday's nearly 40-minute session, Wicks said: "I'm going to be your PE teacher for the nation", before adding that, while he thought it was just going to be for the United Kingdom, "it's turned out to be so much bigger".

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

After the workout, he tweeted a thank you to those who took part, saying: "Incredible to think that millions of us where all exercising together all around the world".

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

"I've got mums, dads and even grandparents having a go, there's no equipment and you can do it in your living room".

"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".
