Joe Wicks and stars of Strictly Come Dancing are teaming up with the BBC for a new series of lockdown fitness programmes.

After his herculean efforts to keep people active during previous lockdowns, Joe is back to fulfil a national service and help people keep fit once again in 2021.

Launching on January 11, there’ll be a new weekday segment BBC Breakfast: Lockdown Life providing tips for viewers looking to keep the body and mind active.

The first episode will see Joe take over at 7.50am on BBC One. The daily instalments will also be available on BBC iPlayer and BBC Breakfast social media channels for viewers to revisit.

Mark said: ‘When I started training on Instagram during the first lockdown, I could not believe how many people joined in with me – to make even a small positive difference was so rewarding. To continue this journey and team up with the BBC to help motivate teens to get healthy and to get moving is something that I’m really proud to be a part of.’

BBC Chief Content Officer, Charlotte Moore added: ‘Now more than ever, it’s so important to stay active and healthy. Our range of BBC fitness programming is suitable for viewers of all ages and will provide vital support to parents and children in lockdown as well as creative ideas to keep moving and stay fit from home.’

BBC Breakfast: Lockdown Life begins on BBC One at 7.50am on January 25.
