At home with... Joe Wicks

From his favourite breakfast recipe to his passionate relationship with his lawn...

Jo Wicks The Body Coach

Are you part of our growing #sorealhomes Instagram community (if not, check it out, it's pretty awesome)? Ever wondered where your favourite Instagrammers pick up their amazing homeware? Or what their best dinner party recipe is? Or even just what their most used colour is? 

Well, we are nosey like that too, so in this new monthly series, we ask quick fire questions to some of our favourite authors, chefs, bloggers and stylists to get the inside scoop on their home life. 

This month it's fitness expert, best selling author and now kitchenware designer Joe Wicks (AKA The Body Coach) who is spilling the beans on his home life...

The person you would most like to cook for?

My brother George. He's living in Thailand so I haven't seen him in ages. 

What is your fail-safe weekend breakfast recipe?

My goat's cheese chorizo muffins. I make a batch when I know I have got friends visiting. 

DIY or DIY don't?

DIY don't. Although I've had a new lawn in my garden and I'm obsessed with it. I've even been singing to it!

Describe your perfect Sunday at home...

A little bit of a lie in, get up about 9:30 and go for a long walk or bike ride. Then it's back home to sort out a delicious roast dinner. 

What would you save in a fire?

My laptop and photos. I'd be gutted to lose precious memories of my newborn baby.

What's your favourite space in your home?

My gym! I've got a loud music system so I can sing my heart out during my workout.
