Joe Wicks has admitted to accidentally breaking wind in front of thousands of viewers during one of his latest live workout classes.

The self-styled body coach, 34, resumed his PE With Joe Classes on Monday in a bid to keep the nation fit after England entered its third national lockdown.

However, before the first session, viewers were met with the sound of their instructor letting off steam, when Wicks didn’t realise the cameras were rolling.

The 34-year-old told Heart radio presenter Mark Wright he was mortified as he confessed to letting off a “giant ripper”.

Wicks told his friend and former TOWIE star during an interview on Wednesday: "I'm so embarrassed by what's happened.

“I pressed the live button on my YouTube stream, and just before – I'm talking 20 seconds before – something slipped out, Mark... and you can guess what it will be."

Asked how the mishap could have happened, Wicks explained: "800,000 people have seen that video. I didn't know.

“When you go live, you press live and there's about a 20 seconds delay but for some reason the link had opened and it was buffering and it basically got the sound.

"So I've let out this giant - honestly, the longest ripper I've ever let out in my life.”

He then revealed that he didn’t realise his fans had heard him until the following day.

The father-of-two said: “I didn't realise it was live so I've done the ripper-oo and I’ve gone, right, five, four, three, two, one – jumped in - and I only found out today when the Daily Mail shared a link saying: 'Did The Body Coach just let an almighty ripper off before his PE with Joe Workout?’”

Despite laughing it all off, he decided to edit out the unintended intro from the version now available on his YouTube channel.

"I tell you what, some of the comments are hilarious,” Wicks told Wright.

“I've got to be honest, I've gone back to the video and got my mate to edit it out because I can't have that living on there forever.”
