Here’s Why People Are So Mad At Phillip & Holly’s Selfie With Boris Johnson
This selfie has Twitter on a bit of a war path.
Phillip and Holly are two of the most well-known presenting duos (not exactly Ant & Dec level, but we still love them nonetheless). They’ve been presenting the This Morning show for some time, and had us all in stitches, mainly with their reactions to some of the crazy stories that came up.
But now, people are not happy with the duo after their interaction with Boris Johnson. We all know that Boris isn’t the man of the hour right now, to say the least, but he appeared on yesterday’s This Morning for an interview slot with Phillip and Holly. They chatted through Brexit, the NHS, his comments on Muslim women and single mothers, and even if he would partake in I’m A Celeb, just like his dad Stanley did a couple of years ago.
But the majority of the problem came from what happened off air. After the ads rolled, Philip and Holly revealed that Boris had asked the two for a selfie, and they happily obliged. But the viewers were keen to point out that Jeremy Corbyn as put through a much tougher interview when he appeared on This Morning just the day previously. Comments began to fly in at how much kinder both Phillip and Holly were to Boris Johnson, rather than to his Labour counterpart, Jeremy Corbyn.
Please. Where’s the grilling you gave Jeremy Corbyn? #thismorning @Schofe & @hollywills should be ashamed of themselves after that interview All the giggling and coyness from Holly, and then to have a selfie.Really, is that good interview technique? Lost all respect for these two pic.twitter.com/U4u2WilU26

Phillip then decided to defend the now infamous selfie, with a single little Tweet.
Can I point out that if Mr Corbyn had asked for a selfie, we would have happily obliged.

All in all, people are generally unhappy with how obviously different the two interviews were conducted. And the selfie is the icing on top of a not so well-loved cake.
Have your say
