Joe Wicks accidentally farted in front of 800,000 people during one of his online PE lessons.
The fitness fanatic has returned to keep people in shape during lockdown, and many of his followers got a little surprise just before one of his 9am classes.
Speaking about the mishap, the 34-year-old said he didn't realise that the camera was rolling when he let out the squeaker.
He told Mark Wright: "I'm so embarrassed by what's happened. I pressed the live button on my YouTube stream, and just before, I'm talking 20 seconds before, something slipped out Mark... and you can guess what it will be Mark... "
Joe added: "So I've let out this giant - honestly, the longest ripper I've ever let out in my life.
"I didn't realise it was live, so I've done the ripper-oo, five, four, three, two, one, I jumped in and I only found out today when I saw a link asking: "Did The Body Coach just let an almighty ripper off before his PE with Joe Workout?"
The health and fitness guru confirmed that he was returning with his morning sessions after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced England would be plunged into a third national lockdown.
Taking to Instagram, The Body Coach said: "I've got some great news, I've decided I need to come back and be there for children during this time, through this lockdown when schools are closed to keep their exercise up, to keep their activities there, their energy, their mood, their mental health.
"I'm going to be doing PE with Joe live, three days a week Monday, Wednesday, Friday starting next week on the 11th.
"Children at home, they're not being as active. Their mental health is going to suffer and we need to be getting our kids moving."
During an address to the nation, Mr Johnson said the stricter measures were due to a continued rise in the number of coronavirus cases over recent weeks - with more than 80,000 people in the UK testing positive for the deadly disease on 29 December, a new record.
He once again ordered the country to stay at home, and not to leave other than for a number of permitted reasons, such as for work, shopping for essential items, and medical issues.
Under the rules, people can fulfil volunteering obligations; exercise once a day alone, with people from their household, or one person from another household; visit other people in their support bubble; and carry out compassionate visits, such as to those who are giving birth or in a hospice.
Attending places of worship is also allowed. All pubs and restaurants must also close, except to provide food and non-alcoholic drinks for takeaway.
Mr Johnson also announced that schools were to close until after the February half term, except for vulnerable pupils or the children of key workers.
Those who are found to be outside without a 'reasonable excuse' will be given a Fixed Penalty Notice of £200 for the first offence, doubling for further offences up to a maximum of £6,400.
