Joe Wicks has admitted to an embarrassing ‘accident’ which happened during his live PE lesson watched by 800,000 people.
The Body Coach has returned with his live fitness lessons during the third national lockdown after keeping the nation’s kids fit for much of last year.
But on Wednesday viewers heard a strange noise and it wasn’t the exercises as it was moments before it went live.
Former TOWIE star and mate Mark Wright brought up the incident during his live radio show on Heart – much to Joe’s embarassment.
“I can’t believe we’re having this conversation, I know what you’re going to ask me already,” Joe told Mark. “Go on what is it?”
Mark replied: “Let’s just talk about some kind of noise that happened to, how many people…?”
A mortified Joe came back: “I’m so embarrassed by what’s happened. Basically, I filmed my first PE with Joe yesterday, live at 9am, right?
“I pressed the live button just on my YouTube stream, and just before, I’m talking 20 seconds before, something slipped out Mark… and you can guess what it will be Mark…”
The radio host quickly responded: “How did it happen Joe? Because I’m looking at it, you’re so professional with your [YouTube] lives and stuff, you’re incredible with what you do, but how did you make the mistake?
“Did you already press ‘live’ and you didn’t know you was live? What went wrong?”
Clearly not over the situation, Joe replied: “Listen, 800,000 people have seen that video. I didn’t know,” Joe confessed.
“When you go live, you press live and there’s about a 20-second delay but for some reason the link had opened and it was buffering and it basically got the sound.
“So I’ve let out this giant – honestly, the longest – ripper I’ve ever let out in my life.”
And the best part is, he didn’t even know he had been caught out until it was discussed by his PE viewers.
