The fitness guru has held big money talks with the broadcaster following the success of his YouTube workouts, which is pulling in more than 9million daily viewers.
Joe has previously hosted a show for the channel, with two series of Joe Wicks: The Body Coach airing in 2018.
A TV source said: “Channel 4 have worked with Joe previously and were straight onto him once they saw he was going to be hosting live workouts daily.
“His YouTube streams have been watched in their droves, so they have offered him a deal to host a daily show for them which would be aired to the nation to get kids, and adults, moving every morning.
“Nothing is signed yet but they are all hopeful something will work out.”
