The Body Coach Joe Wicks has become one of the pandemic's unlikely heroes. The 33-year-old fitness guru has been leading millions through his daily PE classes on YouTube and dedicating the earnings from the videos to the NHS.

But as well as championing the importance of exercise during lockdown, the father of two has also put a spotlight on one of the challenges that couples can face, especially if they have young children: finding some adult time alone.

Joe and his wife Rosie are parents to Indie (1) and Marley (four months), and earlier this week, he revealed on the Made By Mammas podcast that the couple, who married last year, have to schedule sex.
