Holly and Phil are ‘disliked’ by This Morning crew and should be SACKED for ‘lying’, claims Kim Woodburn | The Sun
KIM Woodburn has launched a blistering attack on This Morning hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, claiming she is "appalled by them."
The How Clean Is Your House host, 80,has even called for the ITV duo to be sacked for "lying" in a damning interview on GB News.
Kim's comments came after the This Morning anchors were accused of jumping the queue to view the late Queen lying in state on Friday.
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.
Yet the presenters addressed the backlash and claimed they would "never skip a queue" – before The Sun exclusively revealed mum-of-three Holly will not quit amid the furore.
Yet Kim – who has a frosty relationship with Holly's co-host Phil after he told her to "shut up" on air – is taking the opposite stance.

She told the broadcaster: "Their self-serving publicity stunt came back to bite them on the bum, didn’t it? I’m appalled by them.
"There were many people in that queue, people with wheelchairs and walking sticks. And Holly and Phillip think because they are on TV they can flout the rules.
"They’re telling lies and they’ve been caught. They’re cocky, they’re self-assured and they are disliked intensely.
"They should be fired and the crew would say, 'Yippee. We’ve had enough of these two idiots. They won’t be missed.'”

Her comments come after Holly and Phil returned to This Morning on Tuesday and addressed accusations they jumped the queue to see the Queen lying in state on Friday.
The presenting duo said they "understood" the backlash after they used media passes to access Westminster Hall after fellow celebrities queued for hours with members of the public.
Despite a petition calling for them to be sacked, some fans were supportive of the pair with one tweeting: "Holly and Phillip didn’t jump the queue… there’s worst things in the world that are happening right now."
Another called their explanation that they were there to cover the event for This Morning "perfectly reasonable".
Meanwhile, back in 2017, Kim was forced to defend her "explosive" interview with Phil on This Morning where she claimed he "pushed her buttons."
The Celebrity Big Brother star appeared on the show to discuss her time in the house but unleashed her acid tongue at Phil after he suggested she caused rows on the show and should have been nicer to her fellow housemates.
Taking to Twitter at the time to defend her behaviour, Kim said: "I'm a nice person. Anybody I know will tell you this. If somebody pushes my buttons. I push back just as hard.
"Thank you for your tweets x."
Her interview with Holly and Phil then sparked a slew of hilarious memes as her sensational appearance went viral.
The How Clean Is Your House star had a number of high-profile spats during her time in the house but she was not impressed when Phil grilled her about her fights with Chloe Ferry, Nicola McLean and Jamie O’Hara.
It all kicked off when Phil said that the housemates hadn't been rowing before she entered the house, Kim hit back saying: "You weren't in there Phil.
"You don't see me getting ganghanded by them, you saying something to one of them and they all come back at you!"
When Phil asked how much she got paid, she slammed him saying: "That has nothing to do with you. Don't be cheeky!"
Phil then said she'd have got on better if she'd been nicer.
She replied: "I think I am a nice person, ask any of the crew I've worked with, I'm very polite!"
