()

TENS of thousands of Brits are demanding the hosts of This Morning are sacked as the row over queue jumping to see the Queen rages on.

ITV stars and This Morning hosts Holly Willouhby 41, and co-host Phillip Schofield, 60, were accused of seemingly jumping the queue in front of thousands of Brits waiting to see the Queen lying in state.

A change.org petition to remove the duo, titled Axe Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby from TV, has collected more than 54,000 signatures, with creator Laura Harrison saying: “ITV should be ashamed of exploiting the situation. I’d like to see This Morning axed for good as I do believe it causes more harm than good, without people noticing.”

After social media erupted in response to the footage the under fire presenters broadcast a segment addressing online claims they were “too posh to queue” in Westminster Hall last Friday.

Speaking over a montage of people lining up to see the coffin, Holly said the pair entered Westminster Abbey as “accredited broadcasters”, adding: “It was strictly for the purpose of reporting on the event for millions who weren’t able to visit in person.”
