This Morning denies Phillip and Holly skipped Queens loungers in the state queue in a statement

This Morning released a statement on its Instagram Stories in response to the backlash its presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby have received over the past few days.

The pair were spotted at Westminster Hall, where they were Queen Elizabeth resides in state is currently taking place, but rumors spread that they didn’t queue and instead were given access without the long wait of thousands of members of the public.

David Beckham and Susanna Reid were among the crowds who queued for hours to pay their respects to the late monarch, but when Phillip and Holly were spotted waiting outside the queue it sparked rumors suggesting they had skipped the queue.

They drew criticism on social media when they were spotted at Westminster Hall on Friday without having been part of the public queue.

The statement, released by This Morning, read: “Hi everyone, we would like to clarify something.

“We asked Phillip and Holly to be part of a film for this Tuesday’s programme.

“They did not queue, VIP access or walk past the Queen in state – but were there in a professional capacity as part of the world media to cover the event.”


What to Expect at the Queen’s Funeral


To gain access to Westminster Hall, some media and MPS have been able to skip the line since its doors opened to the public on Wednesday.

In the days since it opened, the line has only grown, even reaching a “at least 24-hour wait” before it drops.

There is also live coverage of the Queen’s state in state, and a number of channels including the BBC and Sky News have reported regularly on the event.

The Funeral of Queen Elizabeth II takes place on Monday, September 19th.
