JOE Wicks revealed today that his online PE lessons have raised £80,000 for the NHS as well as keeping the nation fit.
The fitness guru has been hosting daily keep fit sessions as the UK is locked down in their own homes amidst the coronavirus pandemic.
And the fitness influencer confirmed today that the extra money he has been making from the YouTube videos is going towards the NHS.
Wicks confirmed the videos helped him raise £80,000 in the past seven days, which he has donated to help medical staff treat COVID-19 patients.
He told Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain: “I saw the views and it’s unprecedented. YouTube isn’t a massive part of my business, but obviously with the views comes more revenue.
“I saw the number, I was blown away, I said that needs to go somewhere special. The NHS is the right place – it felt right, I’m so proud I’m doing that.”
He added: “So in the past week alone, in the last seven videos, the adsense is nearly at $100,000 US dollars.
“Every penny of every workout we do on this school stuff, from now and forever on that channel, all that money is going to the NHS in the UK.
“We are raising money for these workers, it’s almost like a UNICEF Soccer Aid, the more we do it the more we raise. I’m so proud of that.”
Dad of two Joe has been hosting the daily PE lessons on his YouTube channel at 9am.
