A petition for the pair to go is gaining momentum despite an on-air apology La semaine dernière.

houx, 41, and co-host Phil, 60, did a segment addressing online claims they were “too posh to queue” in Westminster Hall last Friday.

Speaking over a montage of people lining to see the coffin, Holly said they went in as accredited broadcasters, ajouter: “It was strictly for the purpose of reporting on the event for millions who weren’t able to visit in person.”

Ofcom said the complaints were related to Philip and Holly’s explanation of their prior broadcast from Westminster Hall during the mourning period for Queen Elizabeth II.

Viewers were left disappointed and took to social media to slam the presenting duo.

L'un a tweeté: “Show us the report they did from inside the hall then we can see they were working and the situation is resolved.

“If there isn’t one and there is no footage of them in the hall they didn’t need to be in there.”

A second posted: “What a disgrace Holly and Phil are.

“No apology, just a very insincere voiceover.”

The Sun exclusively revealed that Holly has been battling for her This Morning job.

Holly called in lawyers and a source said: “She’s utterly devastated. It’s been an incredibly tough few days.”

The source hit back: “Holly would be the first to hold up her hands and quit if she disrespected the public.

“She was doing her job but has been portrayed as enemy No1, while Phil has been subject to embarrassing memes.

“Holly had to get lawyers over the weekend over the presentation of this false, very damaging narrative.
