 Having recently qualified as a pilot and taken up boxing and running, Joe has continued to enhance his ‘action man’ credentials by competing in a celebrity edition of Total Wipeout against the likes of Fatima Whitbread and Sally Gunnell; attempted to smash the ‘most amount of martial arts throws in a minute on Guinness World Records Smashed; spent time in a Costa Rican prison for Virgin One’s The Prisoner X documentary season and was shipped off to the jungles of Guyana for the Discovery Channel’s Alone in the Wild series, where he survived  alone with a camera,  in the depths of the rainforest for 5 days!

And when he finds the time, Joe is continuing to study for his Open University Degree in Geo Sciences!
