Anyone named Holly or Phil can jump Huddersfield Five nightclub queue after This Morning pair shamed

Nightclub says anyone named Holly or Phil can jump the queue to get in after This Morning pair were shamed over using shortcut to see Queen lying in state

  • Five Bar in Huddersfield is offering queue jumps to Hollys and Phils this weekend
  • Came as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield skipped queue to see the Queen
  • ‘If you are lucky enough to be called Holly or Phil’ you won’t be queueing at Five

A city nightclub is offering anyone called Holly or Phil the chance to queue jump, following the This Morning ‘queue-jumping’ controversy.

Five Bar in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire announced on Facebook that anyone called Holly or Phil will be offered a free ‘queue jump’ ticket this weekend.

The post reads: ‘Yep. That’s right, if you are lucky enough to be called Holly or Phil there will be no public queueing for you.’

As university students return to the town this month, this could be a boon for any Hollys and Phils looking for a night out after a hard day of studying without the need to stand in a long queue.

It comes after ITV presenters Holly Willoughby, 41, and Phillip Schofield, 60, faced backlash for skipping the 13-hour queue when paying their respects to the late Queen lying-in-state in Westminster Hall.

After members of the public queued for hours to pay their respects, photographs emerged which appeared to show the pair being granted special access.

However the pair denied this, and said they followed the correct process for the media to attend so they could film their piece to camera for This Morning.

But viewers are still not happy with the presenters, and are calling them for to be sacked with a petition which already has over 65,000 signatures.

It emerged last night that Holly and Phil were heckled by mourners as they skipped the 13-hour line.

The TV presenters have been blasted on social media this week after video showed them appearing to jump the queue at Westminster Hall on Friday, September 16.

Holly and Phil have defended themselves, saying they were there to report on the event ‘for millions not able to visit in person’.

It has also now been revealed that people waiting to pay their respects to Her Majesty heckled the pair as they entered the hall via the VIP entrance, with one witness saying there was ‘real hatred’ for them.

Joe Tomkins, a builder from Nottingham, said he was outraged to reach the end of end of the queue only to find the broadcaster waltz past mourners.

The 41-year-old, who had been standing in line for 14 hours in frigid temperatures overnight, told The Sun: ‘They walked straight past us all and a few people started shouting.

‘People were saying, “Oi, Phil, Holly, get to the back of the queue!”. Phil looked around and smiled as if to say, “We can do what we want”.

Other businesses have also joined in with the backlash, with Domino’s Pizza mocking the pair.

They tweeted: ‘Apologies to anyone waiting on their pizza, we’ve just received an order from Holly and Phil.’
