The Body Coach has become a bonafide national treasure following his at-home PE workouts to help the nation stay fit during coronavirus lockdown.
Now, Joe could be taking his workouts in a totally new direction – to the dancefloor.
According to The Mirror, Joe has been approached by producers of both Strictly and ITV rival I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! but is hesitant to appear on TV.
An insider revealed: ‘He has been scouted for a third consecutive year by both shows but ruled them out because he fears taking part would damage his brand.’

Joe may be out of action for a while however, he’s been admitted to hospital following a rather nasty hand injury.
The fitness star has undergone surgery after fracturing his hand after falling off a bike last week.

But don’t worry, he’s promised fans that his regular workouts will be taking place again from next week as he takes time to recover.
Taking to his Instagram story, Joe had shared a series of clips updating fans with how his surgery went, and on one, he had captioned it: ‘See you Monday for PE with Joe.’
He also explained that his wife, Rosie, will be helping him for the upcoming session, as he might not be able to showcase many exercises due to his injury, but he ‘doesn’t want to let anyone down’.

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One.
