Phillip Schofield addressed the issue on Tuesday’s episode of their ITV show, saying that they ‘understand the reaction’ from the public but insisting that they did not skip the queue.

They instead claimed they entered the hall to work as broadcasters so they could display the solemn scenes to viewers who were unable to be there themselves. 

This Morning viewers immediately hit out at the excuse, with one person calling it a ‘so-called explanation’ that they said was ‘way off the mark’. 

Another said ‘you claimed you were reporting for the world when it was literally on every channel’. 

Holly and Phillip personally insisted that the matter be addressed at the start of the show and believe ITV should not have waited so long to speak out on the matter.

A source revealed: ‘Philip and Holly are dumbstruck at the level of anger they’ve received in the past few days. They felt ITV should have made it clearer, right away, that it was part of a broadcast.’
