Body coach Joe Wicks signs up for Strictly Come Dancing - report

The 30-year-old personal trainer and nutrition coach is said to have agreed to take a twirl around the dancefloor for the upcoming season.

Body Coach hunk Joe Wicks has reportedly signed up for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The 30-year-old personal trainer and nutrition coach is said to have agreed to take a twirl around the dancefloor for the upcoming season. And according to the Daily Star newspaper, Strictly bosses are hoping Joe will be a ratings hit, with his good looks and effortless charm making him popular with millions of fans.

"Joe would be perfect on Strictly. “The bosses have been eager to make sure he signs the deal as soon as possible," a source told the publication.

And fans can also expect their hearts to be racing by the end of the show, with costume designers apparently planning to show off as much of Joe's toned physique as possible.

"They reckon he will be the hunkiest contestant to appear on the show. He would certainly get the ratings up – especially in the costumes they have planned for him. There will be a lot of flesh on show, that’s for sure," the source added.

Hunks to have previously won themselves legions of new fans with sexy, shirtless displays on Strictly include Mark Wright, McFly star Harry Judd and, unexpectedly, Judge Rinder.

The news comes after Joe addressed speculation a Strictly appearance was in the pipeline, saying: "They have asked and I’d love to do it but I’m so busy so I’m trying to clear up the time.

"We’ll see, but I have my fingers crossed that I can make it work."

Joe has become a household name thanks to his Lean In 15 cookbooks, the first of which sold more than one million copies in the U.K. - a feat only achieved by J.K. Rowling and The Girl On The Train author Paula Hawkins.
