Good Morning Britain's Alex Beresford is set to take a break from the ITV breakfast show in order to self-isolate.

The weather presenter shared the news on Twitter on Monday (February 1), as he explained that he and his 11-year-old son Cruz will be adhering to government protocols and self-isolating after Cruz's mother and Beresford's ex-wife Natalia recently tested positive for COVID-19.

"Over the weekend my son's mother tested positive for coronavirus," Beresford told his followers.

"As he moves between households I will now be self-isolating with my son who came to stay with me this weekend. Currently we don't have any symptoms. First and foremost we wish Natalia a speedy recovery," he added.

He finished off the announcement with a praying hands emoji.

"Worrying for your whole family. I hope your son mum get better soon and makes a full recovery. Big hugs from me and my family," one fan wrote back, as another said: "You're a good guy Alex. Wishing you and your family all the very best."

"Hope everyone pulls through for you and has a speedy recovery. Keep safe and well! Hope to see you back on @GMB very soon," a third tweeted.

Beresford first spoke out about his split from Natalia in June 2020, explaining that they'd decided to part ways just a few weeks before lockdown began.

"I'm not a quitter, and I hate quitting things," he shared on ITV's mental health podcast 'Britain Get Talking'.

"We tried to work through things, but at some point you realise the best thing to do for everybody is to walk away, but walking away is never easy.

"We were in the same house up until the beginning of this year, knowing that we were parting ways, it takes a while to figure things out. One thing I didn't want to do is rush things."
