A nightclub has decided to weigh in on the queue-jump drama surrounding Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield – by offering punters free 'queue jump' tickets.

Huddersfield's Five Bar has become the latest venue to roast the ITV hosts, who were accused of skipping the Queen's lying-in-state queue at Westminster.

Even the London Dungeon got involved in the row earlier this week, when they offered tourists special 'Holly and Phil' queue-jump tickets.

But it seems the memes haven't stopped just yet, because the Huddersfield club has offered anyone named Holly or Phil a free queue jump this Friday (September 23).

The club revealed the witty deal on their official Facebook page with a poster of Holly and Phil which read: "Free queue jump all weekend if your name is Holly or Phil!"

It would come at a rather good time for any university students that don't fancy waiting around to get into their favourite watering holes.

Of course, they'd have to prove that they have the right names in order to snap up the deal.

Alongside the ad was a caption that read: "Yep! Thats right, if you are lucky enough to be called Holly or Phil there will be no public queueing for you."

This Morning presenters Holly and Phil received a bitter backlash from the generic public during the Queen's lying-in-state, which saw thousands of people queue for hours outside Westminster to pay their respects to the late monarch.

The pair apparently beat the queues in photos that emerged,

This Morning later issued a statement denying that their stars skipped any queues and asserted they had obtained press accreditation to cover the event.

Holly and Phil addressed the issue on This Morning, where they also denied snubbing any queues.

Holly said: "The rules were that we would be quickly escorted around the edges to a platform at the back.

"In contrast, those paying their respects walked along a carpeted area beside the coffin and were given time to pause.

"None of the journalists and broadcasters there took anyone’s place in the queue and no one filed past the Queen.

She continued: "We, of course, respected those rules, however, we realise that it may have looked like something else and therefore totally understand the reaction. Please know that we would never jump a queue."
