Joe Wicks Lets Out ‘Ripper’ During PE Livestream In Front Of 800,000 People

During one of his online PE sessions, Joe Wicks let out a “ripper” of a fart in front of 800,000 people. He has since shared his embarrassment and insists it’s the “longest” he’s ever done. 

To keep people in shape during the third lockdown, health and fitness guru Joe Wicks has once again returned with his online PE sessions.

Yet at his latest 9 am session, his fans got quite the surprise when he let out a squeaker.

Discussing the mishap, Wicks admitted that he had no idea that the camera was rolling at that point of the session.

He told Mark Wright: “I’m so embarrassed by what’s happened. I pressed the live button 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… ”

He added: “So I’ve let out this giant – honestly, the longest ripper I’ve ever let out in my life.

“I didn’t realise it was live, so I’ve done the ripper-oo, five, four, three, two, one, I jumped in and I only found out today when I saw a link asking: “Did The Body Coach just let an almighty ripper off before his PE with Joe Workout?”

The fitness fanatic decided to start up his online PE sessions again when Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that England would once again be plunged into a national lockdown.

On Instagram, The Body Coach said: “I’ve got some great news, I’ve decided I need to come back and be there for children during this time, through this lockdown when schools are closed to keep their exercise up, to keep their activities there, their energy, their mood, their mental health.

“I’m going to be doing PE with Joe live, three days a week Monday, Wednesday, Friday starting next week on the 11th.

“Children at home, they’re not being as active. Their mental health is going to suffer and we need to be getting our kids moving.”
