Joe grew up on a council estate in Epsom, Surrey, with his mum Raquela and brothers Nikki and George, and he borrowed £2,000 from her and his dad to become a personal trainer, and kickstart his fitness empire.

‘So when I could take that money I earned from that book and say ”mum, I’m buying your house. It’s yours,” that was an amazing moment for me. That’s something she’s always dreamed of.

‘She’s wanted to own something, so she lives there and she’s so happy.’
