It comes a fortnight after Holly en Phil was faced with a backlash from This Morning fans after their Spin to Win competition offered to pay winners’ energy bills for four months.

The pair were accused of facilitating “poverty porn” and after 48 hours the prize was removed from the segment.

Holly, 41, and Phil, 60, returned to the ITV show yesterday where they were forced to defend themselves over the queue-jump backlash.

Holly said: “Like hundreds of accredited broadcasters and journalists we were given official permission to access the hall.

“It was strictly for the purpose of reporting on the event for millions of people in the UK who haven’t been able to visit Westminster in person.

“The rules were that we would be quickly escorted around the edges to a platform at the back. In contrast those paying respects walked along a carpeted area beside the coffin and were given time to pause.

“None of the broadcasters and journalists took anyone’s places in the queue and no one filed past the Queen.

“We of course respected those rules however we realised that it may have looked like something else and therefore we totally understand the reaction.

“Please know that we would never jump a queue.”

Viewers were unrelenting however – with a number saying they did not believe them.

Others shared videos of Holly and Phil walking past the large queue in central London mocking the statement.

A petition to get the pair AXED from the show has surpassed 36,000 handtekeninge.

Meanwhile The Sun revealed the duo have hired lawyers to fight for their jobs on the morning hit show.
