Mocking Joe Wicks

However, they recently came under fire when they mocked celebrity fitness coach Joe Wicks.

Joe has been helping to keep the nation healthy by live-streaming PE sessions each morning during the coronavirus lockdown.

Children, parents and grandparents from all over the country have been tuning in and the exercise guru has won widespread praise for the scheme.

But earlier this month, Pete and Sophie had a bit of a pop at Joe while they were were watching him on The Andrew Marr Show.

Sophie sniggered: "How's he made it onto Andrew Marr?"

She then mocked the Body Coach as he talked about becoming the nation's PE teacher.

"Just a web cam. YouTube channel," she said.

Pete added: "And capitalising on a pandemic. He is cashing in big style.

"If there is a whiff of a pound now, he's there."

Their comments did not go down well with viewers, who said the siblings were being "rude" and "disrespectful".
