Viewers cheer as Alex Beresford announces he is leaving ITV News

Weather presenter Alex Beresford is leaving ITV News West Country after 17 years.

Alex became famous after he argued with Piers Morgan about Megan Markle, which resulted in Piers leaving Good Morning Britain.

Viewers cheered after hearing he would no longer appear on ITV West Country. But Mr Beresford will now Join the ITV national news team.

He said: “It’s been over a decade since I’ve been working across the region and it’s been the most amazing time,” he said.

“It’s been a special part of my life and I’m going to miss it. I’m a Bristol boy through and through.

“The West Country is an amazing place to work. I’d never been to Cornwall before I started working at ITV West Country and I got to explore one of the best parts of the world in my opinion.

“It’s been special, especially over the last couple of years. There have been restrictions but we made it to air every night and it’s testament to the hard work here.

“Thank you so much to everyone who has been watching at home over the years, watching me growing up on TV. I’ve only ever had one job and this has been it.”
