A UK television star has decided we all need to keep active during this period of self-isolation, posting a video of some DIY dance moves that are so glorious it’s become an instant viral smash.
Joe Tracini is an actor in the long-running British soap opera Holloaks. He’s also been very public about his mental health and is a vocal advocate on topics such as depression and suicidal thoughts.
Not that Joe’s going to let self-isolation get in the way of keeping fit. Wonderfully, he’s donned the leotard, gone out to his back garden and is showing everyone how to move via his easy-to-learn viral dance steps.
Check out possibly the best fun you can have in a global pandemic below:
