GOOD Morning Britain’s Alex Beresford cut a casual figure in a stylish tracksuit after leaving work today.
The weatherman, 40, was spotted outside Global radio studios looking toned and chic in the designer get-up.
Alex smiled as he rocked the £60 hoodie with slim leg joggers with zipped pockets and white hightop sneakers.
He finished off the look with a black Azat Mard cap and carried healthy snacks in his hands.
Today, Alex took the Good Morning Britain hotseat today as he presented the show for the first time since his Meghan Markle row with Piers Morgan.
The weatherman joined Kate Garraway on the main desk to host, and he received words of encouragement from his co-star.

After Alex praised Kate following the airing of her Finding Derek documentary, she said: “And you’ve had tumultuous times as well Alex, it’s lovely to have you here, it very much is.”
He replied: “It’s good to be back.”
And Alex was soon up on his feet with a smile on his face to demonstrate his impressive hula-hooping prowess.
Last week the 40-year-old returned to the programme after a 10 day break following his row with Piers.

Kate, who hosted the main show that day, told him that it was “lovely” to have him back.
It was business as usual for Alex, with no mention of the dramatic run-in with his former co-star, which saw 55-year-old Piers quit just hours later.
He was praised around the globe for confronting the TV presenter for comments he’d made about Meghan Markle the previous day, becoming an overnight sensation in the US.
Piers sensationally stormed off set as Alex criticised his coverage of Meghan and Prince Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview.

Addressing his co-star’s personal grudge with Meghan, Alex calmly said: “I understand that you don’t like Meghan Markle, you’ve made it so clear a number of times on this programme.
“I understand you’ve got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one and she cut you off… She’s entitled to cut you off if she wants to.
“Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don’t think she has, but yet you continue to trash her.”
And the remark hit a nerve, with Piers dramatically standing up and saying: “Okay, I’m done with this”, as he made his way to the studio exit.

He was off-screen for almost 20 minutes, and tensions quickly grew again when the debate continued later on in the programme – with Alex repeatedly insisting that he wasn’t accusing Piers of being racist.
That evening, ITV confirmed in a statement that Piers would not be returning to Good Morning Britain – with his comments on Monday’s show also receiving criticism from lead mental health charity Mind for dismissing the Duchess’ mental health battle.
