GMB’s Alex Beresford splits shirt after dare from fellow presenter

Alex Beresford has gone to unbelievable lengths to prove a point in the West Country newsroom.

After Kylie Pentelow dared him to try and touch his toes, Alex decided to have a go despite insisting his shirt couldn't take the strain...

Kylie says she had no idea her challenge would cost Alex a shirt.

We were talking about yoga and I suggested Alex try touching his toes. He said it was his shirt holding him back! I started filming but couldn't believe it when i heard it rip!

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.
