THIS Morning’s Alice Beer shocked viewers when she handed out donuts and cracked jokes as people queued to see Queen Elizabeth II’s coffin.
The TV presenter, who joined This Morning in 2014, spoke to mourners waiting to see the Queen lying in state at Westminster Hall in London.
Alice told one young lad the queue was like ‘Reading festival’
The 57-year-old walked up and down Albert Embankment with a microphone and boxes of Krispy Kreme donuts.
She said: “We can pay our respects and eat donuts at the same time … I’ve become the most popular person in the queue.”
Alice stopped to speak to a young man waiting with his mother in the queue, and added: “You would think it would be just staunch royalists here but no we’ve got some teenagers.”
Commenting on the drizzle, she told him: “Mind you it’s a bit like Reading festival, you’ll be doing that next year!”
Viewers were left stunned by her comments and shared their annoyance on Twitter.
One said: “Does Alice realise it’s the actual queen these people are queuing for and not queen the band?”
A second achoed: “That woman interviewing people in the queue to see the queens coffin needs sacking!!! How disrepectful!! Its not a festival queue!!!”
A third shared: “Jesus wept you are treating this queue like it’s the opening for the new ride at Alton Towers . Not a good look, have some respect.”
