Fern Britton makes cryptic 'VIP' dig amid Phillip and Holly's 'queue jumping' controversy


Share post:

Fern Britton, 65, has made a veiled dig at her former This Morning co-star Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby amid controversy that the pair “jumped the queue” for the late Queen’s lying in state. The star had hosted the ITV show with Phillip for seven years. 

Rumours of strife between Fern and Phillip have been speculated for years. 

The most recent rumours indicated that Fern was angry she wasn’t invited to the BAFTAs to help celebrate This Morning’s 30th anniversary. 

But she has recently rekindled the feud speculations amid accusations that Phillip and Holly jumped the lengthy queue to pay their respects to the Queen. 

On Friday, the same day that Phillip and Holly viewed the Queen’s coffin, Fern tweeted: “There’s a VIP queue???”

However, Phillip and Holly were ushered straight into the hall seemingly without having to queue up. 

Following the backlash, This Morning has since released a statement and urged fans that they did not “jump the queue” or “have VIP access”.

A spokesperson wrote on social media: “Hello everyone, we would like to clarify something. 

“We asked Phillip and Holly to be part of a film for this Tuesday’s programme.

“They did not jump the queue, have VIP access or file past the Queen lying in state.
