Standing up to terrorism, they vowed not to be scared and carry on with their jobs.

Holly, 36, and Phil, 55, were even joined by chef Mark Hix who cooked up a storm.

Talking to the camera, Phil said: “We’re a mile away from our studios. It was a horrific night that affected people drinking and the traders, so we though we’d come and show our support.”

They spoke to Patrick Williams from Soul Food first, and he gave them a box of chicken, rice and mutton.

They tried some tasty grub at what has been hailed the ‘Disneyland of food’ and discovered how the community is pulling together.

First the pair spoke to Patrick Williams of Soul Food, who offered them a box of rice, chicken and mutton.

He said: “I think when things like this happen you find out how tight the community is. When something happens the upsurge of good wishes is incredible.”

Bakery stall owner Matt also joined them, and said: “We had eight guys working at that time. Two were very directly involved.

“They weren’t injured but were quite heroic. It was an absolute mess. They’re OK, they’ve both actually gone home as they wanted some time out.”

“Thank for having us @boroughmarket … we’re with you… #loveborough 💚”, she wrote.
