Several of the 1970s British stars appeared on Good Morning Britian via video this week.

Len Goodman and Gyles Brandreth – the latter of whom had a show with Dame Judi canceled due to the crisis – were the last to join the show on Wednesday, isolating themselves at home amid COVID-19.

And through a video call to the studio, Len, 75, admitted that he doesn’t know what to do with himself to pass the time and what the rules of self-isolation are.

He told Piers Morgan and Ranvir Singh, “I’m not clear [where I can go]but I made it clear in my own mind, I don’t go to pubs, I don’t go anywhere where gangs are people.

“I take a walk in my garden, I met my son and my grandchildren in a park, I went out in a safe way.

“I listen to your program, personally I don’t think anyone knows what to do. I organize my sock drawer and do a puzzle, I just stay active.

He compared the global pandemic to the war and continued, “During the war, everyone took care of everyone. I talked to my mom and dad about it, you can’t just drop by and it feels uncomfortable. I’m a bit confused if I should do that. ‘

Gyles, 72, also spoke during the morning show of his disappointment that he had to cancel his theater show with Judi and that there was ‘no other choice’ than to stay at home.

“We have to take that blow, there is no choice,” he said. “I was going to open a show with Dame Judi Dench on Friday and now all the people … have put them off.

“We will, as Dame Judi said, we will come back!”

He added, “People over 70 are told from a social distance, actually when you can stay at home.

“I have the dictionary, I’ve never had it! It will keep me busy for the next 12 weeks. ‘
