Ha! GMB weather presenter Alex Beresford, 40, winked at rumors about his future appearance on Strictly Come Dancing on Monday
Alex’s fans wrote under the post, ‘You’d be a great Strictly match … are you going to do Strictly ??’
It is claimed that BBC producers would like to get Alex and Laura, 39, on the show in 2021 to help with ratings, according to The sun
Alex has been in the spotlight more than ever for the past month after spitting on the air with ex-GMB presenter Piers Morgan when they disagreed over Meghan and Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview.
Meanwhile, mum-of-one Laura – who has been working on the ITV show since 2014 – has never appeared on reality or TV competition shows before.
Ooh eh! Reports have surfaced stating that Strictly bosses Alex and fellow weather presenter Laura Tobin are eager to sign up for this year’s series and it appears he was happy to tease his 255.6k followers about the claims.
Cheeky! Hot on the heels of the note, he took to Twitter to write, ‘Should I brush up on my 2 steps and shuffle?’ Which sparked excited fan response
A BBC source told the publication: ‘Strictly bosses like to have an ITV star during the day because they help with ratings, because they are really well known. Viewers wake up every day.
Laura and Alex are much loved and would make good purchases. It’s early days in the process, but both of their names are in the mix. ‘
Laura, Alex and Strictly have been contacted by MailOnline for a comment.
It was revealed on Saturday that the BBC is reportedly planning to have the 2021 series resume its full 13-show run this fall after the 2020 show was reduced to just nine weeks due to Covid restrictions.

It has also been reported that the highly anticipated Blackpool special will be back this year, after travel restrictions meant a trip to the seaside town was impossible last year.
A source confirmed to The Sun: ‘They are going to release a full series this year. That means 13 episodes and all theme weeks. The highlight will be the trip to Blackpool and it always has been on Strictly.
As things stand now, the entire show will head northwest in November. Everyone is very excited. ‘
Tricky: Alex has been in the spotlight more than ever for the past month after spitting in the air with ex-GMB presenter Piers Morgan when they disagreed over Meghan and Harry’s bombshell Oprah interview
Tough Day: Piers walked away after a fierce debate with Alex, in which the weather presenter accused Piers of unfairly ‘vandalizing’ Meghan and calling him ‘devilish’
Striktly’s eighteenth series faced major setbacks and was forced to continue with strict social distancing protocols.
Last month, the BBC confirmed the 16 dancers who will be hitting the dance floor this fall, with fan favorites like Anton Du Beke, Johannes Radebe and Dianne Buswell all returning.
Anton, 54, will continue his reign as Strictly Come Dancing’s longest-serving professional dancer by marking his 19th season on the show.
Exciting: Meanwhile, mother-of-one Laura – who has worked on the ITV show since 2014 – has never appeared on reality or TV competition shows before

The female pros are Oti, Janette Manrara, Amy Dowden, Dianne Buswell, Karen Hauer, Katya Jones, Luba Mushtuk, Nadiya Bychkova and Nancy Xu.
While Aljaž Škorjanec, Anton Du Beke, Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, Johannes Radebe and Neil Jones are the male pros.
Last month, Piers announced that he had quit GMB after Alex disputed his comments about the Duchess of Sussex, 37, and her interview with Oprah, 67.
The outspoken GMB presenter left the daytime series after he left insisted that he “didn’t believe a word” of Meghan’s story of suffering from suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the royal family.
Good news: It was revealed on Saturday that the BBC is reportedly planning to resume the 2021 series this fall with its full 13 show run.
Piers then walked away after a heated debate with Alex, in which the weather presenter accused Piers of unfairly ‘vandalizing’ Meghan, calling him ‘devilish’.
When Piers left the screen, Alex continued, “I’m sorry, but Piers sprays regularly and we have to sit there and listen.”
Piers, who declined to apologize, later announced his resignation and tweeted his thanks to the GMB team, praising them for their “ hard work and dedication ” that led to them beating their main breakfast television rival.

And Piers shared his own reflections on the events of that fateful week last weekend in a piece for the Mail On Sunday.
Piers called Alex “ an occasional replacement weather forecaster for GMB ” and “ tense ” in the telling report, adding that the presenter has not messaged him since his departure, unlike others on the show.
Thinking about their now infamous meeting at GMB, which ended in Piers leaving the studio, Piers said he wouldn’t sit there and get ‘beaten’ by one of his own team.
