Alex Beresford and Piers Morgan hit headlines across the country in the days prior to the former Good Morning Britain host’s departure from the show. After locking horns over Piers’ comments regarding Meghan Markle earlier this month, Piers walked off the GMB set and refused to apologise to Alex or Meghan before cutting ties with the show for good. Ever since, ITV has welcomed the likes of Ben Shephard and Adil Ray into the presenter’s chair with a permanent replacement yet to be announced – but on Friday, it was the turn of Alex.
Usually on the show as GMB’s resident weather reporter, Alex swapped the forecasts for headlines as he joined Kate Garraway.
However, seeing as the row with Piers was such a memorable moment from the host’s final day on the show, a number of viewers weren’t happy to see Alex now in the presenter’s chair.
Replying to the show’s official GMB Twitter account, one fan made their thoughts known: “Saw it was him and turned to sky news … GMB you need to sort your programme out.”
A second echoed: “Same, cannot stand the man! He needs to stick to weather. His performance with piers shows he is unable to remain professional and imo should’ve been fired!” (sic)
