Amanda Holden takes sassy swipe at Holly and Phil Schofield's 'queue-jump' drama

Amanda Holden has weighed in on Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield's 'queue-jump' drama.

The 51-year-old TV and radio star made her feelings clear as she seemingly referenced the This Morning presenter's ongoing woes.

Sharing a section from her show on her Instagram today, Amanda and co-host Ashley Roberts were discussing David Beckham when she slipped in the subtle dig.

"So David Beckham has landed a seven-figure deal with Qatar’s World Cup sponsor, Doritos. I love Doritos. I’d love a seven-figure deal," quipped the former Pussycat Dolls singer.

Amanda quickly replied: "Get in line. Well, I mean he did get in line. Good on him."

She was referencing the fact David stood in the queue for 13 hours to see the late Queen Elizabeth II lie in state in London.

Ashley replied: "Well, yes he did for like 14 hours," all while Amanda jokes "good on him" before pulling a playful face, laughing to herself.

The somewhat subtle jibe comes amid an ongoing feud between herself and This Morning's Phillip.

Only a few years ago, Amanda confirmed her differences with Schofield after she was convinced he had her axed from This Morning.

She was scheduled to stand in for Holly while she was hosting I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2018, but the offer was withdrawn at the last minute.

The job was instead given to former girl band star Rochelle Humes.

It comes after news that Holly feels 'reassured' by her bosses at ITV despite false claims she was "hung out to dry" by producers at This Morning.

A telly insider claimed Holly and Phil were left 'distraught' by the ongoing 'queue-jumping controversy'.

Dismissing claims Holly would quit her job over the matter, a TV source said: "The abuse has been nothing short of disgusting."

"There is huge, real and serious concerns over their wellbeing and ITV are fully supporting them behind the scenes in the face of such relentless trolling," they told The Sun.

They added: "The channel backs them 110 per cent."

Sources say that Holly and Phill have felt reassured by ITV's stance, and dismissed rumours that Holly could even quit the show, or that her job was in peril.

The source added: "She adores her job and would never quit. The whole experience has been totally brutal but one thing has remained constant, and that’s been ITV’s unwavering support."

On Tuesday the pair said on the show they would "never jump a queue" after they appeared inside Westminster Hall on Friday without taking part in the public line.
