Gogglebox: Pete and Sophie mock Holly and Phil's 'queue jumping'
Kaye Adams insisted David Beckham was not “in a queue” when he waited for 13 hours to pay his respects to Queen Elizabeth following her death last year.
The Loose Women panellist, 60, instead insisted that the line of people stretching up to 10 miles was a “coming together”.
She tweeted in September 2022: “Just watched a little video clip of David Beckham in ‘the queue’.
“It’s not a queue, is it? It’s a ‘coming together’. That’s what people do when they grieve.”
The ITV star’s tweet divided her 90,000 followers and they swiftly filled the comments section with their thoughts.

Steve disagreed, saying: “Come on Kaye – whatever you want to call it, David like many thousands made a fantastic effort and got out there to honour our Queen! Not like some who jumped the queue!”
Anon added: “Waiting in a line in order to do something at the end of said line is very much a ‘queue’
Diana said: “It’s a queue and it didn’t need to be this way. They could have had a system where people booked a time slot and then queued. But they wanted the optics of people queuing for days. At first, I thought it was glorious now I’m thinking it’s negligent.”
On the other hand, one user replied: “I like that way of thinking Kaye.”

Ashley echoed: “Absolutely, and respectful it was, despite him being asked if he’d like to jump the queue.”
And Fiona wrote: “Well said Kaye, unlike Willoughby and [Schofe].”
Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield came under fire when they were accused of jumping the queue at the Queen’s lying in state.
The pair, who still presented This Morning together at the time, addressed the furore saying that they were there purely in a work capacity and would never queue jump.
The criticism was heightened as David Beckham chose to wait to pay his respects to the Queen and refused an offer from an MP to skip the queue.
A source told the Daily Mail: “David could have avoided all of the queuing but he wanted to be like everyone else. He said his grandad wouldn’t have [jumped the queue] so neither would he.”
Speaking outside Westminster Hall, the father-of-four said it had been “special” to be a part of the historic moment.
He told Sky News: ”So this day was always going to be difficult, and it’s difficult for the nation, it’s difficult for everyone around the world, because I think everyone is feeling it, and our thoughts are with the family and obviously with everybody here today.
“Because it’s special to be here, to celebrate, and to hear the different stories that people have to say.”
