Nightclubs and tourism hotspots reveal a VERY cheeky bonus for anyone named Holly or Phil after the queue

The This Morning co-hosts have struggled with claims they were ‘too chic to queue’ to see the queen lying in state.

Phil, 60, and Holly, 41, didn’t queue for hours like everyone else, including David Beckham, and passed the crowds on Friday.

Following the backlash, the couple have since insisted they were given official permission to enter Westminster Hall for broadcast purposes and would “never skip a queue”.

But the public were furious at their actions and an online petition to have them kicked out of the daytime show topped 50,000 signatures last night.

And now The London Dungeon tourist attraction has added a new ticket option for those who wish to visit.

The popular attraction dubbed it the pass for people ‘too good to queue’ and said it costs the same as a normal ticket – but gives you immediate access without have to wait with “peasants”.

A spokesperson said: “The Holly and Phil pass is here for a limited time only.

“If you’re too good at queuing up with the rest of the rabble and demanding quick and immediate passage through London’s horrid history, then this is it.

“Don’t chitchat with the patiently waiting plebs when you might be on a one-way road to the start of the queue!”

A nightclub in Huddersfield is also hoping to cash in on the scandal just as university students return – Five Bar is offering a free queue jump all weekend to anyone named Phil and Holly, reports YorkshireLive.

Tuesday’s This Morning show opened with a montage of emotional TV moments since the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

The footage included a clip from inside the hall, not showing Holly and Phil as they walked past the monarch’s coffin.

In a bid to put out the fire, Holly said: “Like hundreds of accredited broadcasters and journalists, we have received official permission to enter the venue.

“It was strictly for the purpose of reporting on the event for the millions of people in the UK who were unable 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 their respects walked along a carpeted area next to the coffin and had time to to make a break.

“None of the broadcasters and reporters took anyone’s place in the queue and no one passed the queen.

“Of course we followed those rules, but we realized it could be something else and so we fully understand the reaction.

“Please know that we will never skip a line.”

However, hope for things to blow up didn’t happen as soon as the friends would have liked, as The Sun revealed Holly had to hire lawyers to try and save her job.
