Joe Wicks, 37, has spoken exclusively to Express.co.uk about whether he plans on ever doing Strictly Come Dancing after being asked to do the show for the last five years. The fitness guru has reaffirmed that he will never do the BBC dance show due to his “terrible” dancing skills and the idea of being away from his family for long periods.

I am also a terrible dancer!

Strictly Come Dancing has been filled with many famous faces over the years, however, fans will be upset to know that Joe will not be joining the line-up anytime soon.

Express.co.uk asked Joe if he had ever been asked to do the show or whether he would ever take part in the BBC hit series.

He revealed: “Oh god! Well yeah, every year I get asked, every year for the past five years, but the truth is, I don’t even like going away for a night away from my kids.

“I really miss them so the thought of going away for two or three weeks at a time just wouldn’t happen really.

“So, yeah I will pass on that one. But I am also a terrible dancer!

“I mean I wish I had the confidence but I’m a really shocking dancer, so yeah, not for me that one.

He remarked: “I feel I would be as stiff and wooden as Tony on it!”

This is not the first time Joe has admitted that he regularly turns down both Strictly and I’m a Celeb each year.

Joe also spoke to the Radio Times last year about his decision to never take part in the BBC show when rumours spread of his appearance.

He said: “I’m definitely not. Publicly dancing on a dance floor, out there and exposed on my own, is my worst fear. “I can only ever really have a dance when I’ve had a drink, so to do Strictly I’d have to be steaming!”

Joe has three children with his model wife Rosie Jones, whom he married in June 2019.

The couple shares two daughters and one son, with the most recent daughter Leni being born in September.

Joe recently put his fitness to rest as he completed a 30-mile walk in 11 hours for Children in Need to help raise money for grassroots projects and local charities supported by the telethon.

Sharing his fears before the walk, Joe admitted: “I’ve never walked this far. I think the longest I have walked is ten miles.

“So it’s gonna be tough but I’m going to pace myself. I’ve got two pairs of trainers, I’ve got a few pairs of trousers and tops for if I get wet, to keep myself comfortable.

“I’m sure I will get through it and I’m looking forward to it!”

Joe, however, completed the walk in his stride and helped the grand total that Children in Need raised on Friday.

The BBC One show ended with the announcement that a whopping £35,273,167 was raised directly from the TV appeal, with Joe making more than £500,000 of this for his ultramarathon.

Joe is known for his fundraising efforts, making over £350,000 for the NHS during lockdown with his workout videos.
