In 2021, Brain Tumour Support revealed on their website that Joel and his wife Hannah had become ambassadors of their charity. Hannah’s mum was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2020 and Hannah explained: “Knowing that Brain Tumour Support is there to guide and support has really helped to sustain us through some very difficult days. Until you’re faced with this experience it’s hard to comprehend just how much there is to take on board, for mum and for all the family, and the range of emotions you go through.”

The Daily Mail reported that 'speaking with comedians Rob Beckett and Josh Widdicombe on their podcast, Parenting Hell, on Friday, Joel confessed the NTAs are 'fairly soon to the due date.' The article went on to say that “the star said Hannah, 34, is now 35 weeks pregnant and is hoping she doesn't give birth quite yet”. Rob Beckett jokingly added: “If she goes into the labour the day of the NTA's which is live from the O2, just let me know and I'll get there and I'll host it.”
