Phillip Schofield dropped from We Buy Any Car adverts in wake of queue-jumping accusations against This Morning host and co-presenter Holly Willoughby

ITV host Phillip Schofield has reportedly been dropped as the public face of the We Buy Any Car adverts.

The decision, first reported by The Sun, comes after the This Morning host, along with co-presenter Holly Willoughby, were last month accused of queue jumping to pay respects to the Queen at Westminster Hall.

We Buy Any Car is reportedly filming new adverts this week without Schofield, 60.
