Loose Women presenter Kaye Adams, 59, took to Twitter this morning to insist that David Beckham, 47, was not “in a queue” when he waited over 13 hours to see the late Queen Elizabeth II lying-in-state yesterday. The 2022 Strictly Come Dancing contestant instead suggested that the line of people stretching out for miles to see the Queen’s coffin was more of a “coming together”.

Kaye explained why she felt the term “queue” was wrong to use in view of her 86,400 Twitter followers earlier today.

She wrote: “Just watched a little video clip of David Beckham in ‘the queue’.

“It’s not a queue, is it? It’s a ‘coming together’,” she continued.

“That’s what people do when they grieve.”

The ITV presenter’s followers took to the comments section to share their thoughts on the matter.

David Jacobi wrote: “Thanks for explaining it, @kayeadams. I can feel David Beckham’s deep sorrow and sense of loss from here.”

“Good morning Kaye, very true,” Gary Hatt added.

While Shelby argued: “It’s a queue of people coming together to pay their respects. Definitely a queue.”

Anon On The Net commented: “Waiting in a line in order to do something at the end of said line is very much a ‘queue’.”

While Dontbuythesun penned: “No it’s a queue. People queuing is a queue. Never has anyone come together at the tills of Tesco and it’s exactly the same here.” (sic)

Former England footballer David Beckham, 47, came to mourn the late Queen Elizabeth II with his fellow Brits in Westminster yesterday.

It has since been revealed that the star patiently queued for more than 13 hours.

According to reports, David joined the queue at 2am yesterday and stopped to take pictures with fans once his cover was blown.

Once the star finally reached the front of the line, he could be seen shedding a tear as he viewed the Queen’s coffin and paid his respects.

Speaking to BBC News about his reasons for joining the queue, David said: “We all want to be here together.

“We all want to experience something where we celebrate the amazing life of our Queen and I think something like this today is meant to be shared together.”

Several people took to social media to share their excitement at seeing the high-profile celeb lining up alongside them yesterday.

Jules Birkby, who had been tweeting her queuing experience, shared: “Oooh and DAVID BECKHAM is just a few lines behind us in the snake. It’s causing quite the stir!”

“The Queue is now full of people trying to photograph David Beckham and forgetting to actually move onwards. It’s madness!” she wrote.

She then attached a picture of the star, adding: “I feel a bit sorry for him, but he’s taking it very well.”

Yesterday, the government stated that the queue to see the Queen lying-in-state had reached capacity, pausing entry to Westminster Hall for six hours after a line that was five-miles-long had formed.

Meanwhile, Loose Women presenter Kaye is set to appear on this year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing, which airs next Friday on BBC One.
