Dan Wootton has clashed with Amy Nickell after she questioned the Queen’s role.

Her Majesty has played a key role in the opening day of her Platinum Jubilee celebrations, marking 70 years of her reign.

During a debate over the future of the monarchy on GB News’ Dan Wootton Tonight, commentator Dominique Samuels said: “I think a lot of people do feel as though the Queen has been brilliant, I don’t think anyone is against the Queen.”

Before Ms Nickell hit back, saying: “Brilliant at what? Really when we think about it.”

But a fuming Dan quickly dismissed her comments, replying: “Amy, this is not the day.

“I’m actually not going to have it today, I’m about freedom of speech, I want to discuss the future of the monarchy.

“But do you really on this day, regardless of your feeling about the monarchy, want to come here and slag off the queen who has given 70 years of dedication because personally I don’t want to hear it today.”

Before Ms Nickell added: “Dan, that’s exactly my problem.

“The fact that someone had to give their life, they’re 70 years against there will to a job they may not even like.

“That’s kind of fundamentally wrong that she was born into a role that she had no say in.

“Look I love Britain, I love Oasis, I love the Spice Girls, I love prawn cocktail crisps, but I do have a problem with forcing somebody to do a job for 70 years.

“And look what popularity you get when you leave the Royal Family."
