FAMILIES told to stay at home to help diminish the threat of Coronavirus have been enjoying 'PE lessons' with a difference thanks to a celebrity instructor.

Joe Wicks - also known as the Body Coach - offered to hold a daily workout for families via YouTube and, on the first day on Monday, a million people live-streamed the event.

He said he wanted to be the nation's 'PE teacher' as families look to home school their little ones.

Among those who took part were families in Worcestershire who tuned in to help keep their cooped-up youngsters active.

Leanne Sofocleous said: "My six year old and I did this this morning. We were very hot afterwards. I'm hoping to do that every day with her.

Lisa Preedy said: "Me and my nine year old daughter did it this afternoon and really enjoyed it! Got to be worth it for all us."

Michelle Ballard said: "It was brilliant, so much fun, my little girl loved it can not wait till tomorrow."

While Hev Beckstein said her children, Millie, seven, Sydney, three, and Dougie, one, all joined in.
