AMANDA Holden jokingly tried to grab her co-host Jamie Theakston’s privates as she avoided handshakes amid Coronavirus fears at The Global Awards.
Last night the Heart Breakfast presenters messed around on stage as they kicked off the awards ceremony at Eventim Hammersmith Apollo.
Amanda told crowds: "There is a new way in France of how we're supposed to greet people.
"It starts like this…"
She tapped elbows with Jamie and then stuck her foot out to touch his – before the cheeky presenter moved in to grab his privates.
Jamie backed off just in time as he shouted out in protest.
Moments later after announcing Dua Lipa had won Best British Act, Amanda wiped down her mic before handing it over to the singer.
The women then avoided kissing each other as Dua Lipa accepted the award.
"I'm not contagious, but I'm totally OK with no kisses," said the New Rules singer.
Amanda then again performed the foot-to-foot greeting nicknamed the "Wuhan shake" with the star.
It got a lot of laughs from the star-studded audience who were there to celebrate music's biggest successes.
The event brings together all Global’s radio stations including Capital, Heart, Smooth, Classic FM, LBC, Radio X, Capital XTRA and Gold, to celebrate the biggest and best-loved stars of music.
There were performances from Stereophonics, Ellie Goulding and Tones and I throughout the night.
Celebrity guests, including Mark Wright and wife Michelle Keegan, Amber Davies, JLS and Paige Turley all turned out for the evening.
Roman Kemp returned for a third year to host alongside Myleene Klass, as well as first-timer, Kate Garraway.
