This Morning fans all say same thing as Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary take over from Holly and Phillip | The Sun

THIS Morning fans were over the moon to see Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary back on their screens.

The pair took over from Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield as they always do on a Friday, but it was a welcome break for many after a stressful week during ‘queue-gate’.


Holly and Phil became embroiled in a huge row amid claims they skipped the queue to “file past the Queen lying in state,” while others waited for hours.

Members of the public were left furious as the TV hosts appeared to skip the long line, after some of them waited for up to 14 hours.

Last night an online petition for This Morning to axe them topped 50,000 signatures.

And today as Alison and Dermot took over , viewers couldn’t resist commenting on how happy they were.

One person wrote: “Keep Alison and Dermot on #ThisMorning or the lovely Josie Gibson. Totally different vibe. The other pair have had their day.”

A second added: “Why do Alison and Dermot not present full time? Do people actually like Holly and Phillip? Ew. #ThisMorning.”

While a third said: “Love to see Alison and Dermot on the sofa, such a refreshing change 😊   #ThisMorning.”

Mum-of-three Holly is said to have been beside herself over the backlash she has received since visiting the Queen lying in state on Friday.

Holly called in lawyers and a source said: “She’s utterly devastated. It’s been an incredibly tough few days.”

On Tuesday’s show the two hosts addressed claims they were “too posh to queue” but stopped short of an apology.

Holly said: “It was strictly for reporting on the event for millions not able to visit in person.”
