    ‘Holly and Phil have made enough money, had enough seen enough, people don’t like them – go! They’re a horrible pair of people. Get nice people like Alison [Hammond]. She’s damn good at her job.

    Holly was reportedly in floods of tears as she and Phil both begged This Morning bosses to defend them from the ensuing stormand were furious that ITV sat on their hands before issuing a short statement defending the pair on Saturday.

    The pair were keen to issue a public apology over ‘queue-gate’, but were talked out of it after taking legal advice, a source told MailOnline.

    ‘Initially Holly and Phillip were prepared to say sorry if they’d upset anyone as they both just desperately want to draw a line under the affair. But they were advised strongly not to go down that road of saying sorry.

    But Kim isn’t the only one to have spoken out against Holly and Philas Eammon Holmes also hit out at his former co-hosts during Wednesday’s GB news.

    Speaking on GB News Breakfast, Eamonn, 62, made no bones about the fact he didn’t believe his former colleagues and said they ‘messed up’.

    Chatting with presenter Clare Muldoon, Eamonn said: ‘I’ll tell you what’s strategic. Why is Holly fighting to keep her job, according to The Sun, but Mr Phillip isn’t?’

    Clare replied: ‘Who knows? Twitter, last night, was saying she didn’t want to vacate her job at This Morning.

    ‘Who wouldn’t want to give up £600,000 a year and everything else that comes with it? I think the brand is very damaged. There has to be a change from the top down to the bottom on This Morning.

    Eamonn then read out the statement from Holly and Phillip, ditado: ‘We didn’t jump the queue, we were workingas he questioned ‘Why wasn’t your boss there working with you?’

    Referring to a photo of Holly wearing a mask inside Westminster Hall, Clare asked: ‘Why was she wearing a mask? Is she allergic to the public?’

    Eamonn answred: ‘No, she does that. “Holly’s in tears”, but Holly’s always in tears. But wearing a mask – I think she’s quite fearful, germophobic.

    Co-presenter Isabel Webster said Holly and Philip fast-tracking was no different to what other broadcasters did while covering the Queen lying in state.

    But a still unimpressed Eammon replied: ‘They didn’t get a fast-track, eles dizem. Lie. They say they didn’t pay their respects to the body. Lie. What else were they there for? Let’s just tell the truth about the whole thing.

    ‘They messed up, and instead of being arrogant and saying, “We were there working as journalists”, why don’t they just say, “Yeah, we thought it would be a good idea”.’

    Enquanto isso, the former This Morning host also made his feelings known on Twitter as he responded with praying hands emojis to a user who wrote: ‘They [Holly and Phillip] should be sacked, Eamonn and Ruth are far better than them idiots’.

    Members of the public even started a petition demand that Holly and Phil be sacked from ITV, which has now reached 50,000 signatures.
