Domino’s hilariously troll Holly and Phil over Queuegate fiasco

The pizza chain jumped in with a bit of playful social media ribbing 

Domino’s delivered a brutal social media burn as Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield’s so-called ‘Queuegate’ shinanigans continued to heat up.

The This Morning hosts have faced backlash after they were spotted walking past queuing mourners and paying their respects in a different line to the public, leading to a petition to have the two presenters axed.

ITV has since been forced to release a statement clarifying they were there in a professional capacity with “press accreditation”, insisting: “They did not file past The Queen’s coffin”, adding: “Any allegations of improper behaviour are categorically untrue.”

Holly and Phillip appeared on Tuesday’s This Morning after the show took a break so ITV could cover the Queen’s funeral on 19 September.

In a VT, they addressed the backlash, saying: “We were given special permission”, adding: “Please know that we would never jump a queue!”

But not everyone was buying their defiant defence.

Posting on Twitter, Rob Jeffries compared it to Boris Johnson’s Partygate cover-up in which he told Parliament that “no Covid rules were broken” and “all guidance was followed in No 10”.

Others likened it to Little Britain’s hapless politician, Sir Norman Fry, who is known for making outrageous excuses to the press after being caught in embarrassing situations.

Jumping in on the action, Domino’s posted an apology to its customers.

In a tweet, the pizza chain said: “Apologies to anyone waiting on their pizza, we’ve just received an order from Holly and Phil.”

Fair to say, the post has got a lot of love on social media:
