In a Tuesday morning Good Britain television interview, Joe said he decided to hang up his PE professor hat because he needed “a break to recharge his batteries.”
Essex’s father told Kate Garraway and host Ben Shephard that the final episode of his live training sessions on YouTube will take place on July 22.
During his chat, the fitness guru, who started his series on March 23, said he was proud of the success of his clips as he smiled and gushed: “18 weeks, 18 solid weeks and 75 million of views. ”
Sharing his reasoning to conclude the videos, he said, “It’s emotionally exhausting enough” and that he needs time with his family.
Giving fans the hope that his workouts aren’t over forever, he continued, “But I’ll be back and do PE with Joe in blocks and keeping the legacy.” ”
Proving that his sweating sessions helped a lot of people during the difficult pandemic, Joe also shared how he was overwhelmed with thanks from people who appreciated what he did.
He said, “I had lots of letters, parcels and children’s cards.
“I had a wave of emotion – I didn’t just have stuff from children, but people from 70 years old and other autistic people. ”
Revealing that the praises he received touched his heart, Joe explained that when we went through the letters, he “burst into tears” and added, “I know it sounds intense but it was emotional. ”
Opening up on how he plans to make the last PE lesson special, he told Kate and Ben that he hopes to involve his wife Rosie in the latest video as well as their grandchildren Indie and Marley.
