Alex Beresford likes tweet about ‘toys thrown out the pram’ amid Piers’ GMB exit

Good Morning Britain weatherman Alex Beresford has been caught liking tweets about 'toys getting thrown out of the pram' amid Piers Morgan's decision to leave the show.

The ITV regular locked horns with Piers earlier this week live on air over the former newspaper editors comments about Meghan Markle.

It resulted in Piers storing off set as Alex branded him 'diabolical'.

Taking to Twitter, on Tuesday, Alex's official page 'liked' a post shared by Loose Women regular Charlene White which appeared to hit out at Susanna Reid's co-star.

Charlene wrote: "When the power starts shifting, toys get thrown out of the pram. Do not allow amateur dramatics to dilute the core – and important – message."

Hours after his live TV clash with Piers, Alex doubled down adding via Twitter: "I wish I had the privilege to sit on the fence. In order for me to do that I would have to strip myself of my identity and that’s not something I can do.

"It’s not any of our places to pick apart claims of racism in order to make us to feel more comfortable."

The row initially kicked off on Monday morning after Meghan Markle accused the monarchy of being racist – alleging that someone in the royal household explicitly expressed concern about the colour Archie's skin would be before he was born.

Both she had Prince Harry refused to say who the person was, but added that it wasn't The Queen, 94, or Prince Phillip, 99.

On Monday morning, Alex tweeted his defence of Meghan after Piers accused her of lying in her Oprah interview on the whole.

Alex wrote: "I do agree @piersmorgan they should have named.

"You can’t tell half a story. That doesn’t mean it didn’t happen!

"Opportunity for the person who said it to step forward, apologise and ‘step back’. The alternative we look at all of them with a squinted eye."

Piers decided to leave Good Morning Britain on Tuesday evening after a meeting with ITV bosses.

It's reported they asked him to apologise for his comments live on air and Piers refused.

An ITV statement simply said: "Following discussions with ITV, Piers Morgan has decided now is the time to leave Good Morning Britain.

"ITV has accepted this decision and has nothing further to add."

Taking to Instagram on Wednesday morning, Piers stood by his decision saying: "On Monday, I said I didn’t believe Meghan Markle in her Oprah interview. I’ve had time to reflect on this opinion, and I still don’t. If you did, that’s OK. Freedom of speech is a hill I’m happy to die on. Thanks for all the love, and hate. I’m off to spend more time with my opinions."
