Live Updates

Team Wicks

All times stated are UK

  1. Olympic level

    Trevor is speaking to Joe and special guest Greg Rutherford, the Olympic-winning track and field athlete. "All I can say is that you're an Olympian and Joe isn't," Trevor jokes.

    But Greg has only praise for Joe: "The difference is I've been on half an hour and you've been going for 12 hours, so that's an Olympic level lesson from you, Joe."

  2. Gladiators ready!

    Coming up, we have Diane Youdale (AKA Jet from Gladiators) joining Joe after 11pm.

  3. A call from Grandma Wicks

    "Joe, hello mate. How are you doing?" Yes, that's Joe's actual grandmother on the line on Trevor Nelson's Radio 2 show.

    "I've been thinking about you all day. We're so proud of you, darling," she tells her fundraising grandson.

    "Joe has always been like this. If he’s doing something, he’ll do it. If he believes in something, he will keep going. He wants to help people, he really really wants to do it."

    Trevor asks if she’s going to stay up to watch him, and Grandma Wicks says: “I don’t think I can!”

    "I love her to death," Joe says of his nan. Heartwarming stuff.

    Joe Wicks Challenge

    You truly love to see it!

  6. "I feel like I’m doing a night shift.”

    A night shift, but not as you know it.

    Joe's speaking to celeb chef Tom Kerridge, who asks what Joe has been eating to keep himself going.

    Joe says: “I love my food and I’m always eating, but I’ve not had my appetite today. I’m grazing on crumpets, toast, sushi, a bit of fruit… I feel like I’m doing a night shift.”

  7. Name a more iconic trio

    Joe Wicks, Dame Kelly Holmes and Pudsey

    Our Joe, Dame Kelly Holmes and Pudsey... what more could you want?

    After falling ill with Covid-19 just 16 days ago, Olympian Kelly says today is the first day that she feels well enough again to exercise. "I'm glad to see you're recovering," Joe tells her.

  12. Four for Joe

    Joe Wicks

    Joe has just kicked off his fourth (yes, FOURTH!) live exercise of the day. Starting with some circling of the arms and toe touches, we're now onto some running and punching.

    "I'm feeling a bit achey and tight in certain parts," Joe says. "I need to pace myself!"

    But don't think Joe will be slacking though. "I'm fresh and ready to go!", he adds.
