Mark Wright, Joe Wicks and a host of celebrities will take part in a series of BBC programmes in a bid to keep the nation fit during the third national lockdown.
As we’re set for another few months indoors amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the BBC has roped in the help of some of the biggest stars in the UK to help encourage fans to stay active amidst the madness.
Things will kick off on January 11 with BBC Breakfast : Lockdown Life, which is a weekday segment during lockdown where a host of stars will provide top tips to keep both the body and the mind active for viewers of all ages.
Fitness fanatic Joe Wicks will set the ball rolling with the first episode of the series at 7.50 am on BBC One.
Throughout the week, other famous faces including Mr. Motivator, rugby league legend Kevin Sinfield, Olympian Adam Peaty, and Premier League footballer Tyrone Mings, will also share some of their successful fitness secrets.

Lifting the lid on his new venture, Mark said: “When I started training on Instagram during the first lockdown, I could not believe how many people joined in with me – to make even a small positive difference was so rewarding.
