Joe wrote under the video: "I've had to call in a supply teacher for Monday's PE With Joe.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain today, Joe addressed the kids who do his workout videos, saying: "Just to prove to you this is an open wound so doctors have said I can't be jumping around.

"And I have got a note saying 'Joe is unable to do PE today because I forgot to wash his PE kit. He was also bitten by a dragon on Friday."

And opening up about his injury, he added: "I had two wires put in, I've been doing PE with Joe two weeks no problem. On Friday I had a flare up.

"I text Rosie and said I don't think I can do this on my own. She said she would help which is amazing, in fitness and in health!"

PE With Joe takes place every weekday at 9am on his YouTube channel.
