‘Sadly it derailed large parts of it because they wouldn’t do the decent thing and just leave when it started crying.

‘I get that it must be tough as a new parent but please, don’t bring babies to adult shows.

‘It’s always a problem.’

Mr Forde, known for voicing Boris Johnson and Donald Trump in Spitting Image, added: ‘I realise this sounds a bit whiny but it’s just to make sure it doesn’t happen again.

‘It’s like someone’s phone continually ringing and them not turning it off.

‘I’ve had so many messages from people who were there last night who were very polite about the fact it p****d them off.’
