Coronation viewers mock ITV hosts Trying to spot Holly and Phil
King Charles Coronation: Monarch waves to crowd on balcony
King Charles III and Queen Camilla have been crowned at Westminster Abbey in a lavish and archaic ritual not seen in Britain since 1953, to a cry of “God Save The King” on Saturday.
While the ceremony appeared to go down well without a hitch it didn’t take long for viewers to take a pop at two noticeably absent This Morning presenters.
Holly Willoughby, 42, and Phillip Schofield, 61, were brutally mocked online just months after the pair were accused of queue jumping when visiting the Queen lying-in-state.
Twitter users took to the micro-blogging site and joked they were surprised the ITV favourites hadn’t beaten Charles and Camilla to the balcony at Buckingham Palace.
One social media user joked: “Still trying to spot Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby #Coronation2023.”
Another quipped: “#HollyWilloughby and #phillipschofield jumped the queue last night to get into Westminster Abbey #KingCharlesCoronation #Coronation2023.”
A third mocked: “Charles just got in his Royal Gold Carriage and found Phillip Schofield & Holly Willoughby in there… #Coronation.”
“Can’t wait to see Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on the balcony,” a fourth tweeted.
Another quizzed: “Have Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby been given their own thrones during the Coronation?”

A sixth jibed: “Phillip Schofield & Holly Willoughby haven’t arrived yet,” adding a picture of two empty thrones in Westminster Abbey.
Even a Sky News presenter got in on the action, as she told viewers: “I feel really bad I jumped the queue but it was all for journalistic purposes,” while waiting on The Mall ahead of King Charles taking to the balcony.
A seventh commentator wrote: “@SkyNews #HollyWilloughby and Phil not to be seen could they, no skip the queue a 2nd time.”(sic)
Back in September, the two presenters faced growing criticism after being spotted skipping the queue to Queen Elizabeth II’s lying-in-state.
Some mourners queued for up to 20 hours to see the Monarch in a touching public show or mourning for Her Majesty.
But Holly and Phil were bashed online after seen entering through a “VIP entrance” whilst other big names such as David Beckham and fellow TV presenter Susanna Reid waited in line with the general public to pay their respects.
Meanwhile, Holly took to Instagram today and paid her respects to the newly crowned king and queen with a homemade cake.
Sharing a photo of His Majesty the King, she wrote: “Congratulations to our King and Queen…”
