The 57-year-old TV presenter was in Westminster on Thursday’s show as she was once again given press access to see the Queen lying in state after being taken at the back of the queue to speak with mourners.

Show: This Morning’s Alice Beer was branded as ‘outrageous’ by spectators after donuts were handed out to mourners queuing to see the Queen’s coffin at Westminster Hall
Introducing her, This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby said: ‘In just a moment we’ll talk to Isla Traquerie, who is keeping people’s souls in line.
‘Hear first from Alice who is on the exit at Westminster Hall. Alice, you were actually able to go inside this morning and see the coffin. How was that moment for you?’
Alice said: ‘Unbelievable. Just before dawn I was allowed into a designated place at Westminster Hall.
‘Let’s be very clear, I didn’t take anyone’s place in the queue. I was not jumping in the queue. It was a slot for a reporter or member of the press so I could tell you about it. Check it out and share it with you. And it was an absolute honour.’
