Kim Woodburn has a pop at Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield over queue-gate
The TV star made her feelings clear as she was interviewed on a podcast
Kim Woodburn has said This Morning's Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield should have been sacked over the queue-gate scandal.
The presenters sparked a backlash last year when they were pictured in what looked like a fast-track queue to view the Queen's lying in state at Westminster Hall, but explained they would never queue jump and were there purely in a work capacity.
But How Clean Is Your House? star Woodburn let rip during an interview on the Not My Bagg podcast.

"They were not, were not asked to cover the Queen's funeral," she claimed.
"They sneaked in and they put these press things they got, they sneaked in because they wouldn't stand in a queue."
"Don't listen to another word they say. They were not contracted, they were not allowed to film, nobody was, so they did sneak in," she said.
"They should have lost their job," Woodburn, 80, added.
Willoughby previously addressed the controversy, saying in a statement on the ITV show: "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 there took anyone's place in the queue and no one filed past the Queen.
"We of course respected those rules however we realise that it may have looked like something else and therefore we totally understand the reaction.

"Please know that we would never jump a queue."
This Morning also stated that the pair were there to film, saying "they did not jump the queue, have VIP access or file past the Queen lying in state" but were there in a professional capacity.
