Joe Wicks has been admitted to hospital over his painful hand injury, with the Body Coach star set to undergo an operation.
Updating viewers on his Instagram Stories, he explained: ‘Great news. Bones have healed.
‘Wires haven’t broke but the soft tissue is inflamed and possibly infected. They are operating today and removing the wires. They’ve given me some strong painkillers which have taken the edge off it’.
However, he later shared a clip of himself lying in a hospital bed, explaining: ‘They aren’t able to do the operation today, they have other patients in the queue, they’re a bit slower with certain things so I’m staying tonight. They’re going to give me some nice morphine, and some antibiotics on the drip-a-roo.

‘They gave me liquid morphine, it ain’t taking the edge off it. It’s throbbing,’ he added, before declaring himself: ‘Throbbington Crusoe.’
He added: ‘So glad I’m staying here tonight. I woke up all night last night as it was throbbing and pulsating like liquid hot magma. Thanks for all your well wishes. Gonna get a good night’s sleep I think.’
