Kim Woodburn, 80, furiously said that she believes Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield should have “lost their jobs” after they were accused of skipping the queue to see the late Queen Elizabeth lying-in-state back in September.
Despite Holly and Phil explaining that they were granted access to Westminster in a journalistic capacity, Kim fumed that, as far as she is concerned, “they were not asked to cover the Queen’s funeral”.
Appearing on the Not My Bagg podcast hosted by Gogglebox stars Joe and George Baggs. Kim ranted: “They sneaked in and they put these press things they got, they sneaked in because they wouldn’t stand in a queue, they are far too high and mighty.
“Don’t listen to another word they say. They were not contracted, they were not allowed to film, nobody was, so they did sneak in.
“They should have lost their job because there was many a person standing there, people in wheelchairs.”
Holly and Phil addressed the criticism surrounding queue-gate during an episode of This Morning at the time.
They insisted that they would “never jump a queue” and were given official permission to the hall “strictly for the purpose of reporting” along with “hundreds of accredited broadcasters and journalists”.
Holly added: “None of the broadcasters and journalists there took anyone’s place in the queue and no one filed past the Queen. We of course respected those rules.
“However, we realise that it may have looked like something else, and therefore totally understand the reaction. Please know that we would never jump a queue.”
