Holly Willoughby 'distraught' as ITV fears she'll quit This Morning over 'queue jump' row

“We, of course, respected those rules, however, we realise it may have looked like something else,” she added.

“Therefore, (we) totally understand the reaction. Please know, that we would never jump a queue.”

This Morning had previously addressed the backlash in a statement posted on its Instagram page. 

It read: “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 – but instead were there in a professional capacity as part of the world’s media to report on the event.”

This Morning airs on ITV on weekdays at 10am.
