The nation's PE teacher Joe Wicks has taken a tumble while hosting his livestreamed PE class, headbutting his ceiling pitch while dressed as the Honey Monster.

The 34-year-old told fans he headbutted the ceiling and dented the roof after sliding into the sloping wall while teaching his online PE class.

The fitness influencer donned a Honey Monster costume for "fancy dress Friday" on 22 January but lost his balance after sliding across his smooth flooring in his fluffy orange shoes.

While doing an exercise called the ‘silly billy’, which involved sliding across the floor, Wicks slid too far and careered into the ceiling wall headfirst.

He shouted: "Ah there's a roof there! There's a pitch roof. I've cracked my ceiling!"

The star clutched his head in pain after the accident but, fortunately, appeared unscathed and was able to complete the workout.

Wicks relaunched his livestream PE lessons for kids for the third national lockdown, after originally providing the free online exercise sessions in the national lockdown last year.

The star hosts PE With Joe on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays on his YouTube channel The Body Coach TV.

Last year, one of Wicks's classes earned him a Guiness World Record for the most viewers for a workout live stream on YouTube. On March 24 2020, almost a million people streamed his class.

In October, the 34-year-old was made an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list, after raising £580,000 for the NHS through his online workouts.

Sharing the news earlier this month that his classes were returning, the star said: "Please please share this with as many families as you can and let your schools know so they can notify the parents ASAP and we can get as many young children taking part.

“This is so important for our children’s emotional and mental health.”
