This Morning presenter slammed for handing out donuts and cracking jokes as people queue to see the Queen’s coffin | The Sun
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.
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!"
