  4. Family matters

    We had a surprise in store for Joe when his wife Rosie joined him on stage to help him get through the final hour of the challenge. He’s already raised over £1,000,000, and he’s still going strong.

    And things got emotional when all the family joined in via video call. Their two kids Indie and Marley were on the line (having a spot of breakfast), and Joe’s mum was full of pride.

    “You’ve always been that child, you’ve always found that extra bit of energy to go a bit further,” she declared.

    Here’s the moment Rosie surprised Joe:

  10. "My mum hasn't slept a wink!"

    Joe Wicks

    It's been getting very emotional over the last few hours...

    "I almost cried when my old headteacher was being really kind to me earlier," reveas Joe. "It's made me feel quite proud of what I achieved.

    "My mum hasn't slept a wink - she's been up all night texting me, saying she's proud of me. I've kept saying mum go to bed, I'm alright. But mum's worry and she's been there through the night with me."

    And Joe's mum Raquela has been chatting to Zoe Ball:
