HE may be about to travel the globe for Celebrity Race Across The World, but Alex Beresford’s time exploring famous locations on home turf has been grounded.
The Good Morning Britain weatherman’s ITV1 series All About Britain, which he co-hosted with Rita Hebden, has been axed after two series.
The programme was launched in 2021 with the pair exploring the Channel Islands, from ancient castles to the walls of Jersey’s capital, St Helier, in the first episode.
They went on to travel up and down the UK but after failing to make a lasting impression with viewers, Alex has revealed it’s been axed.
Breaking the news, Alex said: “We had a brilliant time exploring and celebrating places such as Blackpool, The Eden Project in Cornwall and Edinburgh but we won’t be making any more episodes.”
It’s not all bad news, though, with a new project on the horizon.
Alex added: “However I am working on another project for ITV, details of which will be revealed shortly.”
Meanwhile viewers will see Alex team up with his dad Noel for Celebrity Race Across The World, as they attempt to make the trip from Morocco to Norway, taking in 24 countries en route.
Like the civilian version of the series, the celebs will have to make it to the finish line thousands of miles away without the use of air travel or modern technology.
Instead, they are stripped of their mod-cons and luxuries, and must stick to the budget and earn money by working to make it to the end of the trail.
Weatherman Alex will join famous faces, McFly drummer Harry Judd, All Saints singer Melanie Blatt and racing driver Billy Monger on the journey across the globe, alongside a family member each.
Alex opted to bring dad Noel along for the 6,000 mile journey – also travelled by Melanie’s mum Helene, Billy’s sister Bonny and Harry’s mum Emma.
The six-part series starts on BBC1 on September 13.
