    They added, “Many have been written by children who think Joe is fantastic.”

    Joe’s own daughter has got involved with the classes too, much to the delight of fans tuning in every morning.

    His PE classes have helped keep the nation active and entertained during unprecedented times.

    They’ve even reportedly been watched by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and their three children.

    The source revealed, “Those around Joe think the chances of him getting a nod are high, especially given the praise he’s had from Number 10 and the fact that Prince William’s three children — George, Charlotte and Louis — all do the class daily.

    “Getting an honour from the Queen would be the icing on the cake for Joe. He had no idea his classes would prove so popular.”
