Lorraine said: “I am greeting people like they do in Star Trek. I realised how tactile we all are because you are all so cute all of you.
“And I just want to give you a cuddle and I can’t and I don’t like it.”
The Last Leg isn’t the only show on TV to get rid of its live audience, Countdown, Loose Women and Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway have also made the same decision.
These shows have relied on their audiences for decades, but the shows are hoping to still go-ahead for as long as they are allowed.
The Last Leg continues on Channel 4 next Friday at 10pm.
