NIGHTCLUBS and tourists attractions have revealed a very cheeky offer after the Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby queue row.
The This Morning co-hosts have been battling claims they were “too posh to queue” to see The Queen lying in state.

Phil, 60, and Holly, 41, didn’t queue up for hours like everyone else, including David Beckham, and filed past the crowds on Friday.
Following the backlash, the pair have since insisted they were given official permission to access Westminster Hall for broadcasting purposes and “would never jump a queue”.
But the public were fuming by their actions and an online petition for them to be axed from the daytime show, topped 50,000 signatures last night.
And now, tourist attraction The London Dungeon has added a new ticket option for those wanting to visit.
The much-loved attraction has dubbed it the pass for people who are “too good to queue” and said it costs the same price as a normal ticket – but it gives you immediate access without having to wait with “peasants”.
A spokesperson said: “The Holly and Phil pass is here for a limited time only.
“If you’re too good to queue with the rest of the rabble and demand swift and immediate passage into London’s horrible history, then this is right up your alley.
“Don’t be making small talk with the measly patiently waiting plebs when you could be on a one-way path to the front of the queue!”

A nightclub in Huddersfield are also hoping to cash in on the scandal just as university students return – Five Bar are giving away a free queue jump all weekend to anyone named Phil and Holly, reports YorkshireLive.
Tuesday’s This Morning opened with a montage of emotional TV moments since Queen Elizabeth II‘s death.
The footage included a clip from inside the hall, without showing Holly and Phil as they walked past the monarch’s coffin.
In a bid to put of the fire, Holly said: “Like hundreds of accredited broadcasters and journalists we were given official permission to access the hall.
“It was strictly for the purpose of reporting on the event for millions of people in the UK who haven’t been able to visit Westminster in person.
“The rules were that we would be quickly escorted around the edges to a platform at the back. In contrast those paying respects walked along a carpeted area beside the coffin and were given time to pause.
“None of the broadcasters and journalists took anyone’s places in the queue and no one filed past the Queen.
“We of course respected those rules however we realised that it may have looked like something else and therefore we totally understand the reaction.
“Please know that we would never jump a queue.”
However, the hope of things blowing over hasn’t happened as soon as the friends would have liked, as The Sun revealed Holly had to call in lawyers in a bid to save her job.
