I almost feel sorry for this pair now, there is obviously a lot of dislike for Phil in the industry seeing this is rumbling on ...the lies are not a good look for a pair who dole out advice each morning and have a ‘whiter than white’ image

This is really angering me. They did sod all wrong and people should be ashamed of themselves. They were media and took no one's place. They were in a media box to the side

First of all they went on their day off, secondly we now know they were not on the list, thirdly what on earth did they report on, it was live streamed and no cameras were allowed inside apart from the official live streaming cameras, the majority of the reporting was done in the queue!

Yes their Report was brief
as the Papers went against them.

Sadly, on their now longer newspaper review
they ignored any press story
about them.

Big error

All strong and good points there.
This is why I have little sympathy for either of them.
Although it does seem unfair she is getting more negativity than Schofield.

I rarely have them on TV, they both irritate me intensely.
They have a kind of 'shutting others out and just look at us' presenting style as a duo.

For me they are neither suited to or bring anything to Dancing on Ice.
They annoy me on that too.
So okay I don't like them much at all.

However with all you've said above plus the fact they've set out to clearly deceive the public and viewers..
Just for the sake of saying, yes we got it wrong and we're sorry.
Rather than invent fantasy working nonsense.

Worse still is the programmes producers and ITV kind of covering up for them.
All wrong and in my view right to call it out and expose it.

Hundreds of thousands queued for many hours over half a day many did.
There's nothing about these 2 that warrants them having a privileged placing and in accepting it, they've brought this on all by themselves.

That's my take on it anyhow.

no matter the final outcome, it's never going to be forgotten so they are going to have to get used to it

Royalists are the weirdest cult members I swear, a Prince is credibly accused of sexual assault and being apart of sex trafficking, no issues, let him keep his job he’s suffered enough, media personalities use a fast pass afforded to members of the media? Off with their ****ing heads, it’s madness, these are more than likely the same people that attack ‘cancel culture’ whenever someone they like is racist.

It’s just way too rich for me that people are attacking these two for ‘asserting their privilege’ when we’ve just gone through this whole bloody circus parade for a woman who just so happened to be born into a very specific family, the archetypal definition of overprivileged.

I fully believe this reaction is purely because people already seem to dislike Schofield, so anything he does gets jumped on, you can pretty much guarantee that is someone like, say, David Attenborough did the exact same thing, nobody would give a ****

What I don't get is why their jobs are on the line?

Do I condone their behaviour? Not at all, but is the punishment excessive compared to what they did? 100% yes it is.

Actual criminals don't come under this much scrutiny.

The Ads are just the start.

If people aren't careful we as a society could potentially ruin their livelihood.

they are both already mega wealthy, it's difficult to feel any sympathy for them, particularly when they always gave the butter wouldnt melt in their mouths persona. What goes around comes around

Regardless of wealth people shouldn't be ostracized because they were a bit twatty over something, imo there's nothing wrong with people expressing disappointment in their behaviour, but the witch hunt from some people over Social Media has been ridiculous, and once again gives that medium a bad reputation.

And I say this as someone that has never liked Philip Schofield, but this recent trend over recent years of mob like behaviour over petty things needs to stop imo.

I still feel the backlash was too much, at the start, but the blatant lies they've told since have been a joke tbh - "we attended for those who couldn't" wtaf??

yeah, most of the comments early on were based on humour, it was when they started wriggling and lying that people got annoyed

I bet both of them have a picture of David Beckham on their dartboards. He really hurt him with his queuing

The David comparison is a joke as well

When you are a multi millionaire with no work commitments no family commitments no health issues you can go and stand in a line for hours.

If you think squeaky clean on the surface David did it purely out of love you are wrong.

I don't give a toss about any of them. Just saying, Beckham queuing hurt their non queuing.

But the pathetic lies they've told since have hurt them more.
