CRISIS-hit Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield suffered a brutal dig at the BAFTA TV Awards.
Hosts Rob Beckett and Romesh Ranganathan didn’t hold back on taking a swipe at the feuding pair – despite the on-going drama.
Bringing up a past scandal the This Morning presenters were embroiled in, Rob said he was looking forward to the next series of The Crown.
“Holly and Phil probably got early access to the episodes,” the comic added.
The gag got a mumble of awkward laughter from the crowd.
It came months after Holly and Phil faced calls to quit when they skipped the queue to see the Queen lying in state.

The Sun reported yesterday how Holly has "cut ties" with her This Morning co-star of 14 years – and could be "too upset" to star on Monday's This Morning.
It's understood Holly is "devastated" over the move but was left blindsided when Phil, 61, released a statement on their feud without consulting her.
The friendship breakdown – which has seen Holly looking glum off-screen – comes after The Sun first reported how the TV stars' relationship was under strain.
A spokesperson for This Morning previously refused to confirm whether Phillip would be on the programme on Monday.
