Joe Wicks says his father’s heroin addiction changed his life

“I was scared of it and I got into exercise and fitness and so his mistake changed my life.” “I just don’t regret anything I’ve gone through or anything I have been through with my mum and dad, I’m just proud of who I am,” he stated. “It was an angry thought and I suppose I let it out and I felt instantly bad and I remember just thinking, ‘What a horrible thing to say about your dad’.” The fitness star stated that his father has relapsed in the past, “but today he is clean and that’s the most important thing”. I have got more empathy.” Wicks grew up in Epsom, Surrey, with his mother, Raquela, and his two brothers, Nikki and George.
