UK's largest indoor ice rink opens in Weston while ITV West Country presenter stars in Dancing on Ice

It's an icy day at the ITV West Country studios, as it has been announced that Weather Presenter, Alex Beresford, will be one of the contestants on ITV's Dancing on Ice show.

While in the studio, he received some advice from former winner Ray Quinn, who was at the Tropicana ice skating rink in Weston-super-Mare, which is the largest indoor ice rink in the country.

  • Watch Alex Beresford receive advice from Ray Quinn below:

The ice rink is open from today, 3 November until Sunday, 7 January. Dancing on Ice will air on ITV next year 2018.

Turns out Alex Beresford is a bit of a daredevil...

Our weather presenter Alex was flying high this morning as he took to the skies on Good Morning Britain.

Alex was sent out to ride the world's fastest city zipwire, based in the heart of London.

Zip World London is 35 metres/100 feet off the ground, that's more than 9 double decker buses.

The wire gives you unique views of the capital and it certainly seemed as if Alex enjoyed his early morning flight.


Alex Beresford appears on The Chase (sort of)

We think we have proof our weatherman Alex Beresford has made the big time.

He appeared on ITV's the Chase - not as a contestant but as one of the questions asked by Bradley Walsh.
