WE JUMP ANY QUEUE: Phillip Schofield SACKED from £1m-a-year job over queue-gate 

PHILLIP Schofield has been sacked as the face of WeBuyAnyCar.com following the Queue-gate row, with a petition to sack him from This Morning hitting a whopping 75k. 

A WeBuyAnyCar.com source told The Sun last night: “The We Buy Any Car ads are among the most regularly shown on telly – everyone knows them and the little tune that goes with it, and Phillip has been on them since 2018.” 

“It’s a massive deal, worth seven figures, but next week they’re shooting a new campaign and he’s not involved in any of it.” 

The campaign saw Phillip Schofield made out to be “the nicest man in Britain” and seen a statue to him erected as “Britain’s most popular man”. 

QUEUE FACED  

The row erupted on social media last week after the ITV star – who allegedly groomed a young boy who he went on to have an affair with on the set of This Morning – jumped the Queue for the Queen’s lying in state, and denied it, despite damning video evidence shared across social by Politicalite and other social media pages.

FREE HOLLY!

HOLLY Willoughby – who was forced to take the brunt of the backlash by cowardly Schofield – made an on-air statement written by This Morning bosses last Tuesday – but it failed to quell the daytime telly revolt. 

Despite making claims that they were there for “journalistic purposes” and that they did not jump a queue, it then emerged that they weren’t even on the media list to gain entry, proving viewers right. 

The bombshell turn in the queue gate saga came as a whopping 77,000 Brits signed a petition to axe Phillip, who has faced a massive backlash on social media over his alleged grooming and queue-jumping.

A source in Westminster told Politicalite: “They were involved in a hoo-ha” after turning up uninvited with two colleagues 10 days ago. 

“When they got their names weren’t on the list” the source added. 

“So there were some discussions and, after some back and fourth Phil and Holly were given access and they were ushered through. The whole thing caused abit of a hoo-ha”

ITV claimed the duo followed guidelines and attended the media area. via the media centre.” 

DISSED MORNING 

This Morning’s queue jump row has led to some of the 77,000 Brits who signed a petition calling for Phil and Holly to be sacked calling for the National Television Awards to hold a live re-vote on the Best Daytime Show, Politicalite can reveal. 

This Morning – which has won the ‘Best Daytime Show’ category every year since 2011, will see Holly and Phil appear at the later-than-planned National Television Awards in October. 

Last week, The Sun revealed that ITV bosses feared that Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield “may be booed at the annual telly bash. 

A source told the paper: “They could be booed walking down the red carpet or even on stage. It’s a major concern.”
