THIS is the moment appearing to show Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield “jumping the queue” to see the Queen lying-in-state – despite insisting they didn’t.
Holly, 41, and Phil, 60, faced huge backlash from those outraged that the This Morning hosts appeared to take VIP treatment rather than queue with the public.
Holly and Phil have experienced huge backlash after appearing to jump the queue to see the Queen
The duo today vehemently denied claims they’d pushed in front of people who’d waited up 24 hours to pay their respects to Her Majesty.
However a clip has now gone viral on social media appearing to show Holly and Phil being led past a huge queue of people.
A tweet claimed it was the moment they jumped the queue, with the poster adding: “Here’s Holly ‘We would never jump the queue’ Willoughby and Phillip Schofield DEFINITELY NOT walking past a massive queue”
Today Holly explained to viewers: “We totally understand the reaction. Please know that we would never jump a queue.”

Holly Willoughby ‘could QUIT This Morning over queue jumping crisis’
However fans did not accept their explanation that they entered Westminster Hall and kept to “the edges” of the room and “did not file past the Queen’s coffin.”
One viewer tweeted: “Pathetic excuse. The 3 of them @hollywills @Schofe #MartinFrizell seen a loophole to jump the queue.
“Since when do any of them go to an outside filming piece. Lost the last bit of trust they had with the viewers @itv #ThisMorning @thismorning”
Another raged: “They still Queue jumped. ‘we would never jumped the queue’ my a**e. They are not broadcasters, This morning is a talk show. Susanna Reid is a broadcaster for GMB and she waited hours like the rest of us. Holly and Phil have no shame, it’s a disgrace.”
