Good Morning Britain's Alex Beresford ‘confirms’ Strictly role as he says he 'needs to brush up on his two-step'

GOOD Morning Britain's Alex Beresford appeared to confirm he's set to waltz onto the new Strictly series this year.

The 40-year-old weatherman asked fans if he "needs to brush up on his two-step" after The Sun's exclusive story about BBC bosses being keen to sign him up.

Alex said on Twitter today: "Do I need to brush up on my 2 step and shuffle?"

Producers are interested in Alex and Good Morning Britain's main weather presenter Laura Tobin competing in the show later this year.

The infamous on-air spat with GMB presenter Piers Morgan over Meghan has raised the profile of Alex, 40, who took part in Dancing on Ice in 2018, when he came fifth.

Mum-of-one Laura, 39, who has been with ITV since 2012, is yet to appear on reality shows.

A BBC One source said: “Strictly bosses like having an ITV daytime star as they help with audience figures, being really well-known.

“Viewers wake up to them every day.

“Laura and Alex are well liked and would make good signings.

“It is still early in the process but both their names are in the mix.”

The line-up of pro dancers for the new series, which starts in late September, has already been announced.
