Good Morning UK weather presenter Alex Beresford showed off his adorable lockdown companion at Friday’s show.
He talked to hosts Ben Shepherd and Ranvir Sigh via a video call from home.
It was recently revealed that he secretly split from his wife Natlia Natkaniec.
But Alex didn’t spend the lockdown alone, and he showed off his wonderful puppy Peaches, a cockapoo.
Alex beamed over his pooch in the middle of the news as Ranvir plans to get a dog himself.
“This is Peaches, she’s a couple of years old now, she’s a mix between a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Miniature Toy Poodle.
“So she’s quite small, she’s actually had a haircut the other day, obviously done at home.
They are so exciting, they are curious, they are really loving. “
He added: “She’s just wonderful, they give you a lot of comfort, definitely.”
Alex and Natalia, who had been together for years and share their 10-year-old son, Cruz, decided to go their separate ways just before the lockdown was introduced and no longer live together.
An emotional Alex opened up about the split on the Britain Get Talking podcast.
He told newsreader Kylie Pentelow: “It’s been a massive learning curve, I didn’t think at the age of 20 that when I approached 40 I would be in this situation.
“40 years of age, you will get married, you will be an adult, you will have a child or two, your life will be canceled. I am not old, I do not feel old, it is a little scary.
“But we’ve been in lockdown, so even though I wanted to go on a date, I couldn’t go on a date.
“I don’t want to grow old on my own, life is for sharing and it would be good to meet someone in the future, but they have to be right for me, right for Cruz.”
