Joe Wicks, The Body Coach, is recovering from surgery, but his daily PE workouts are back today thanks to his wife, Rosie, standing in for the trainer
Joe Wicks, The Body Coach, is recovering from hand surgery, but fear not, as he's passed the baton over to his wife, Rosie, who has taken on his daily PE workout videos that have been keeping adults and children healthy and moving during lockdown!
Joe, 33, spent the weekend in hospital after an infection in his hand flared up, needing surgery to remove wires in his hand previously fitted after he fell off his bike, and he's currently unable to exercise since he's in a sling.
The fitness guru admitted texting his wife whilst 'high on morphine' in hospital saying 'Rosie I think I need your help, I can’t do PE Monday I’m in bits', to which she replied, 'don’t worry darling i’ll do it with you'.
So, his former glamour model wife, Rosie Jones has stepped in to save the day, or, week, getting stuck in to the workouts and admitting she was 'covered in sweat' at the end!
Joe took to Instagram to praise his wife for being a 'substitute teacher' whilst he was away, saying : "I think Mrs Wicks was an absolutely fantastic Teaching Assistant don’t you? Good news. She’s agreed to come back and help tomorrow too."

In sickness and in health 👰🏼❤️ My wonderful wife Rosie has agreed to be by my side during tomorrow’s PE lesson as my #TeachingAssistant ☺️🙌🏽 I’ve just got out of hospital with an infection in my hand and whilst high on morphine last night I sent her a text saying “Rosie I think I need your help, I can’t do PE Monday I’m in bits” to which she replied “Don’t worry darling i’ll do it with you” 🥰 So at 9am tomorrow I’ll be the teacher and she’ll be the assistant demonstrating all the exercises for you. This is way out of her comfort zone and I love her so much for it. What a special woman I’ve got ☺️ She’s quite shy and feeling nervous now it’s actually happening so can you wish her good luck before bed please 🙏🏼 See you at 9am everyone ⏰ #pewithjoe #MrWicks #MrsWicks
