Domino’s takes savage swipe at Holly and Phil after ‘queue-jumping’ scandal

Popular pizza chain Domino’s left This Morning fans in stitches after they hit out at co-hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield for their ‘queue-jumping’ scandal.

Over the weekend, the two presenters were slammed since footage emerged of them appearing to bypass the regular queue for Queen Elizabeth II's coffin for exclusive VIP access to Her Majesty’s coffin in Westminster Hall.

During Tuesday’s visit to the ITV studios, the dynamic duo returned to our screens for the first time since their royal faux pas hit the headlines.

But it appeared as though their coverage failed to impress the masses, as fans took to Twitter to hit out at the TV hosts once again.

As viewers fumed online, the beloved takeaway joint Domino's took to the social media platform to take a brutal dig at the pair with a savage joke online.

They penned: “Apologies to anyone waiting on their pizza, we’ve just received an order from Holly and Phil #ThisMorning.”

Their tweet has quickly gathered attention as This Morning fans praised the pizza giants online, with one user declaring: “This wins Twitter today.”

Another agreed: “Banter… Shouldn’t think they are better than anybody else,” as added: “Now Domino’s are dunking on Holly and Phil, it’s all over.”

It comes after the pair opened the show with their highly-anticipated royal coverage as the mum-of-three, 41, addressed the criticism they faced from angered fans for the first time.

She said: “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.

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

While viewers fumed online, fellow TV chef and secret royal family member Clodagh – who is married to The Honourable Harry Herbert, the grandson of The Earl Carnarvon – praised them for their coverage at the end of the show.

She gushed: “We want to say thank you to you guys too because last week it was like a comfort blanket watching you guys every day.

“And what you’ve done last week – the coverage was just incredible so well done.”
