Viewers have slammed weatherman Alex Beresford for his bad attitude on Celebrity Race Across the World.
The Good Morning Britain forecaster is taking part in the gruelling series, which will see celebs and their loved ones dash across the continents from Africa to the Arctic.
Whilst travelling with family can leave most of us a little cranky, the 42-year-old has been dubbed a ‘manchild’ by those watching back at home.
If you’ve not watched the BBC series, be prepared for some serious wanderlust as famous faces make the journey from Marrakech to Tromsø in Norway.
As TV meteorologist Alex makes tracks, he’s joined by his dad Noel – which may explain why he’s been behaving like a moody teenager throughout the show.
In the latest episode, the father-and-son travel over 2000km, from Pinhão in Portugal to the second checkpoint in Bonifacio, Corsica.
Despite the stunning scenery, ITV weatherman struggled to get onboard with the water transport and constantly moaned.
It seems the presenter had had a bit of culture shock as he revealed to Entertainment Daily that he’d never backpacked before.
He told the outlet: “I thought it was a fantastic opportunity to do something that we’ve never done before. Neither of us have ever backpacked, so it’s a new experience.
"Backpacking hasn’t previously really appealed to me, to be honest with you.”
Unsurprisingly his moaning has caused a bit of a storm with viewers at home who took to Twitter to vent their frustration.
In one pointed tweet, a viewer asked: “Anybody else think that Alex Beresford is so annoying on Celebrity Race Across the World?”
Others seemed to agree, with another calling the weather a ‘baby’ after watching the latest episode.
They wrote: “As Roy Keane would say about @alexberesfordTV ‘what a baby, what. Big baby….baby’ #celebrityraceacrosstheworld.”
A third then added a gif of the TV presenter looking worried and joked: “Alex is sensing coming 4th lol #celebrityraceacrosstheworld.”
However, not everyone was annoyed by his antics with some fans saying that the travel series made for perfect armchair viewing.
Eager to plan their next adventure, one fan said: “CelebrityRaceAcrossTheWorld is actually making me want to travel.”
Another even cheered on the ITV forecaster as he dashed across 24 countries with his dad, saying: “#CelebrityRaceAcrossTheWorld Loving the editing on this show and Alex!”
If you are looking to catch the travelbug, Celebrity Race Across the World airs on BBC One every Wednesday at 9pm.
