#stayathome: Joe Wicks to donate earnings from daily workout classes to the NHS
Joe Wicks has shared that he will be donating all of the earnings from his daily PE classes to the NHS.
Every weekday morning, the 33-year-old has been running live fitness classes. Each one is around 30 minutes, with millions of people tuning in.
And taking to Instagram on Friday night, Wicks pledged to donate all the money generated by the videos to the NHS, "to support the real heroes right now."
"Words can't express how happy and proud I have felt every day this week as the nations P.E. teacher. I’ve been overwhelmed with the response and the support it's had from everyone," he wrote, alongside a screengrab from one of the videos.

"As a result of so many people viewing the #PEWithJoe workouts on YouTube the advertising revenue generated has been unlike anything I've seen or experienced on my channel before.
"So I've decided that as long as I’m the nations P.E. teacher, every single penny of the money generated on these videos is going to the place where we need it the most right now. All of it is going straight to the NHS, to support the real heroes right now."
He went on to thank everyone for watching the classes, for participating in them, and for sharing them.
"I’m loving being your P.E. Teacher and now you can watch again, knowing you’re not only staying fit, you’re also helping raise money for the NHS," he added. "See you Monday at 9am."
