Alex Beresford fuels Good Morning Britain feud as he says Chris Eubank 'stood up to Piers Morgan' on Life Stories
ALEX Beresford took another shot at Piers Morgan today saying Chris Eubank 'stood up to him' on Life Stories last night.
The men have fired shots on the ITV breakfast show in recent weeks with the forecaster saying yesterday he had never watched Piers' hit show afterPiers, 55, suggested Alex, 40, was a "bad" weatherman.
Alex told co-host Charlotte Hawkins shortly after 6:30am that he stayed up late to watch Piers in action on his solo show – for the first time – as he interviewed legendary boxer Chris Eubank.
He said: "I had a bit of a late night, with all the excitement. I was watching quite a few things last night …
"Piers Morgan's Life Stories, I committed to watching it and it was a very good watch.
"But it was a a bit of a boxing match of words, and I have to say Piers did get taken down by Chris Eubank quite a few times.
"He did put up a good fight, lets have a watch."
However, the clip that aired didn't reveal Piers and Chris sparring on air, but showed Chris becoming emotional as Michael Watson, who was sat in the audience, saying he didn't hold a grudge after the pair's fight that almost killed him.
However, there was quite a bit of tussling between Piers and Chris on the episode after the presenter quizzed the boxer over his colourful life.
Piers risked upsetting Chris when he asked him about his past shoplifting, bankruptcy, and cheating on his first wife.
In one very awkward moment, Piers spoke about Chris' childhood and claimed that his father was "violent".
However, Chris didn’t like the word "violent" being used and challenged the presenter saying that his father "taking his belt off" might be considered violence today but he saw it as “steering".
Ahead of last night's Life Stories episode, Piers hit back at Good Morning Britain's resident weather expert Alex, as he reignited their feud.
He took to Twitter to slam his fellow ITV presenter after the forecaster said he didn't watch Piers' hit show Life Stories.
Piers hit back after Alex shocked newsreader Charlotte Hawkins that he'd never watched Piers' passion project show.
After Good Morning Britain shared Alex's confession on Twitter, Piers took it upon himself to respond.
Piers clapped back: "To be fair, I've never watched his weather reports."
Alex's bombshell comes just weeks after Piers and Alex clashed on air as the journalist host suggested he was a "bad" weatherman.
Piers introduced Alex's weather segment by jibing: "He is far from being the greatest weatherman of all time."
Alex hit back at the time: "Well the great news is that Piers is not here tomorrow, but the bad news is that the weather is pretty testing out there."
The two men also had a run-in when Piers asked Alex how the weather will be for the Cricket World Cup last summer, to which Alex sniped: "I don't work for you."
Prior to that, the Good Morning Britain stars clashed over using a papoose – with Piers branding Alex a "dimwit" after he said he'd wear the baby-carrier.
Alex admitted he'd used one to help out around the house when his son Cruz was young.
Piers also remarked: "If this is the future of mankind then we are dead."
Producers then launched a Twitter poll urging followers to choose between the pair as Piers ranted: "Thick women would prefer Beresford, dimwit Beresford with his papoose and his tattoos.
"Any woman with a brain would pick me."
However, Piers was left red-faced after Alex won the poll with 68.4% of the final vote.
