Good Morning Britain’s Alex Beresford hopes to make it big in America after winning over numerous A-listers, including Oprah Winfrey, following his tense confrontation with Piers Morgan. 

On Tuesday, Piers, 55, announced he had quit the morning show after the 40-year-old challenged his polarising comments about Meghan Markle and her interview with Oprah, 67. 

And now, Alex is in discussion with top American news networks, The Sun revealed on Monday.

An insider disclosed that he has already been offered several big-money jobs from US TV companies, in addition to possible radio work and a book deal. 

They said: ‘He sees this as his chance to be a global star – he was featured on the Wendy Williams show and has featured extensively in the New York Times and LA Times.

‘Alex has been so overwhelmed by the support he had to have a few days off work and he’s currently exploring all of his options’.

Alex – who is the father to Cruz, ten, with ex-wife Natalia Natkaniec – reportedly caught the attention of Oprah who conducted an explosive discussion with Meghan, 36, and Prince Harry, 36, which aired earlier this month.

The source added: ‘Alex has been inundated with messages of support from A-list stars close to Meghan including Beyoncé’s mum Tina who has been messaging him and even Oprah has reached out by following him on Twitter.’

According to the insider, he subsequently told his agent Jonathan Shalit that he wants to ‘crack’ America as he doesn’t want to be resigned to the position of a weatherman or breakfast TV presenter for the rest of his life.  

A move across the pond would see Alex following in the footsteps of Piers, who secured his own TV show, Piers Morgan Live, in 2011. 

On Saturday, Good Morning Britain lost 500,000 viewers since Piers quit the show on Tuesday.

The 55-year-old left the daytime series after he dismissed Meghan’s account of suffering suicidal thoughts and experiencing racism at the hands of the royal family as he insisted he ‘didn’t believe a word’. 

The outspoken GMB host then walked off set after a fierce debate with Alex.

Piers, who refused to apologise, 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 TV rival.

He wrote: ‘I had one goal when I joined GMB – beat BBC Breakfast in the ratings.

‘On my last day, we did it.’

Good Morning Britain had managed to beat BBC Breakfast ratings for the first time in history with 1.89 million people tuning in to watch Piers and co-host Susanna Reid present the news on Monday.

But since the controversial host announced his permanent departure the show’s ratings plummeted to 1.7 million before falling again to 1.4 million. 

Shares in ITV also plunged in the wake of his resignation with almost £200million wiped off the company’s value overnight and share prices dropping by 3.8 per cent.

Meanwhile, signatures on three petitions calling for Piers to be reinstated on Good Morning Britain have now reached more than 237,000.
