ISSUE 1259

Hang on! Here’s Joe Wicks to make everybody feel better

Joe Wicks started sharing fitness tips and healthy recipes on Instagram in 2014. Now the 30-year-old from Epsom is a social media superstar, and has sold one of the biggest-selling cookbook of all time. He tells The Big Issue why you don’t need an expensive gym membership to be healthy.

Also this week:

  • All the major party leaders have committed to backing The Big Issue’s poverty prevention manifesto. In this week’s issue, Theresa May, Jeremy Corbyn, Nicola Sturgeon, Tim Farron, Caroline Lucas and Leanne Wood explain why they are backing our plan to put prevention at the heart of social justice
  • Anne Reid: In a heartfelt Letter To My Younger Self, the TV, film and theatre star talks Victoria Wood, boarding school – and why she regrets going to Rada
  • Orange Is The New Black star Kate Mulgrew tells The Big Issue why the new season may poke fun at Donald Trump – but he’ll have no idea

And, as always, much more…
