Speaking on her programme today about Joe’s work, the presenter said: ‘It’s so important, we are fast becoming a nation of fatsos and we really have to do something about it.

‘Because when you are overweight, loads and loads of different illnesses and disease can then attack you, so it’s all about keeping your self healthy and keeping yourself safe.’

The fitness guru replied: ‘There’s two factors, the physical health, with diabetes and obesity, we’ve got issues there, but then I think at this moment in time, we have to be thinking about our mental health and the affect exercise has on your mood, your energy, that’s the true motivation.

‘When you exercise to feel good… then the physical transformation comes,’ added Joe.
