Joe Wicks rumoured for Strictly Come Dancing line up (again)

Fitness guru Joe Wicks is once again being rumoured for Strictly Come Dancing.


Joe, also known as ‘The Body Coach’, spent 2020 entertaining the nation with his online workouts during lockdown.

He pledged to donate money from his YouTube videos to NHS Charities Together, raising over £350,000.

Now it’s claimed that Joe is top of Strictly Come Dancing’s wish list – and not for the first time.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Joe is popular with kids so appeals to a wide audience and is tempted to take part.

“He’s focussed hard on his career in the past, but would love to have some fun and put a smile on people’s faces.”

Joe was previously linked to Strictly Come Dancing last year but said at the time: “I am happy being at home with Rosie, Indie and Marley and that is it.”

And even that wasn’t the first time that Joe had been rumoured for Strictly, originally revealing he was asked in 2017.

Quizzed on the speculation in a chat on Loose Women at the time, Joe said: “How do you know about that? Who told you I was asked about that? I mean, I was asked [but] it’s not something I want to do right now.”

However that’s not to say Joe won’t end up on the dancefloor sometime.

“Who knows in the future?” he added.


Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One in the autumn.
