A WEATHER FASCINATION

Beresford became fascinated by the weather because his grandma was "weather obsessed." He found work as a weather presenter for the West Country before joining the national team in 2005.

Among Beresford's credits is the host of several weather-related documentaries. For ITV, he has hosted shows on floods, tornadoes, and the "world's weirdest weather."

A MAN OF ATHLETIC SPIRIT

Beresford is an athletic man who loves to highlight his physique via social media. His ITV bio states that working out at the gym has also been a big passion since he was 17 years old.

The goal of Beresford is to follow this passion and become a certified personal trainer. He started a new Instagram account in March 2020, which is dedicated to his training: @thegymforecast.

HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE SEPARATED

Beresford and Natalia Natkaniec share a son named Cruz. In 2019, the couple broke up but continued to live in the same house until Natkaniec moved out shortly before the Lockdown in London.

The breakup led to Beresford opening up to the podcast "Britain Get Talking" in June 2020. He recalled how lonely and abandoned he felt after Natkaniec left their house.

NOT THE FIRST TIME

The recent clash between Beresford and Morgan is not the first. After acclaimed actor Daniel Craig was spotted with a newborn in a baby carrier, Morgan bashed the use of baby carriers by men.

When Beresford, who runs a Diversity School Tour Project, responded that he had carried his son Cruz in one, Morgan said if this is where humankind goes, it is doomed.
