Joe Wicks could reportedly be in like for an OBE after he was put forward by his legions of fans.

The Body Coach, 33, has raised more than £350,000 for the NHS through his YouTube classes amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and roped in his wife Rosie Jones to help when he was sidelined with a hand injury. 

According to The Sun, Joe’s social media fans have nominated him for the summer Honours list after the work he has done to raise money.  

Honour: Joe Wicks, 33, could reportedly be in like for an OBE after he was put forward by his legions of fans 

A source told the publication: ‘Joe has become a household name since lockdown started and he’s become a figurehead in isolation because of the PE classes he puts on every morning.

‘Hundreds of requests putting his name forward for an OBE have been handed to the Honours committee. Many have been written by children who think Joe is fantastic.

‘Those around Joe think the chances of him getting a nod are high, especially given the praise he’s had from No10 and the fact that Prince William’s three children — George, Charlotte and Louis — all do the class daily.’

The source added that the fitness expert had no idea his classes would become so popular and getting an honour from the Queen would be the ‘icing on the cake’.

Talking about keeping the intimacy while they raise two young children, Joe said he and former glamour model Rosie, 29, have to schedule one night a week where they go to bed earlier.

He revealed: ‘That time is so disrupted it’s almost like you’ve got to crowbar intimacy into your week. One night a week… if you can go to bed earlier. It allows you to have that time to talk.

‘You’ve got to get warmed up sometimes, you can’t just jump straight into things. Sometimes, I’ll go to bed with Rosie and we’ll have a really nice chat, we might watch a show… and you’re suddenly reconnecting.’

Joe also added: ‘I always say, it all comes back to kissing. The minute you stop kissing, you’re in trouble.’

The Body Coach star also called Rosie an ‘amazing’ mother to Indie and Marley, saying she makes him want to be a ‘better dad’.

Gushing about his other half, Joe said: ‘She really is amazing.

‘She’s so patient and I really admire that because I sometimes lose my patience and I get a bit intolerant but she’s so calm and that for me is a really inspiring trait for me to become a better Dad.’
