ITV GMB Susanna Reid seems to protect Holly Willoughby & Phillip Schofield ‘queue jump’ problem
The former Spice Girl expressed her admiration for Susanna, who waited in line for more than seven hours to see the Queen lying in state, before making a reference to the controversy surrounding the This Morning presenters.
The morning host was talking about the Queen with visitor Mel B, who got a letter from the Queen after being awarded an MBE for her work with Women’s Aid.
Speaking on Tuesday’s GMB, Mel B said: “Before I forget Susanna, you queued for seven hours.
“My gosh, I have so much respect for you. I did anyway but even more so now. What was that like?”
Susanna compared the queue to a “pilgrimage,” to which Mel B responded, “No queue jumping for you!”
In response Susanna appeared to defend the This Morning hosts as she said: “Well, some people had to work, of course.
“I was there with my mum who wanted to be there and her friend and it was lovely.”
Holly addressed the situation during the segment looking back on the period of national mourning on Tuesday.
She said: “Like hundreds of accredited journalists we were given permission to access the hall.
“None of the broadcasters and journalists took anyone’s places in the queue.
“The rules were that we would be quickly escorted through an entrance and not file passed the coffin.
“We of course respected their views. Please know that we would never jump a queue.”
Some social media users chastised the This Morning presenters after they appeared inside Westminster Hall on Friday without having joined the public queue.
ITV leaders said in an Instagram statement that their hosting duo had gone to film a segment for Tuesday’s show.
They said: “Hello everyone, we would like to clarify something. We asked Phillip and Holly to be part of a film for this Tuesday’s programme.
