Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield came under fire last week when the pair went to pay their respects to Queen Elizabeth II. However, the This Morning presenters were spotted by Sky News viewers, who accused the duo of “skipping” the queue. Both the hosts and ITV have since stepped in to defend themselves, with Holly telling viewers on Tuesday’s programme, that they were there to film a segment for the show.
However, Holly’s statement seemed to spark further outrage, with many calling for the presenters to be “sacked”.
On Friday’s This Morning, fans were thrilled to see the return of Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary.
However, as the duo welcomed viewers to the programme, many took to social media calling for Dermot and Alison to permanently replace Holly and Phillip.
Liam Hunt penned on Twitter: “Only 5 minutes into today’s #ThisMorning and it’s already better than all the other shows this week. We need Alison and Dermot to replace those other two!” (sic)
