“But it feel great to be here and see you guys, see the crew as well and of course Dr Hilary in the corner, who has been amazing.”

Alex the joked he’d been struggling a little with his first day back: “I can’t get to grips with it all.

“I came in this morning and the first thing I was worried about was makeup – there’s no makeup department.”

He quipped: “It’s the first time I’ve done my hair in ages!

“I’ve done a bad job and I’d like to apologies to our makeup department who are fantastic.”

GMB star addresses split from wife

Alex split from wife Natalia, with whom he shares 10-year-old son Cruz, last year.

However, they continued living together until two weeks before lockdown meaning the presenter has been living on his own.

The star opened up about the split for the first time last month on the Britain Get Talking podcast.

He said: “I don’t want to grow old on my own.

“Life is for sharing and it’d be great to meet someone in the future but they have to be right for me, right for Cruz.”

Alex added: “It’s been a massive learning curve, I didn’t think at the age of 20 that when I was approaching 40, I would be in this situation.

“The age of 40, you’ll be married, you’ll be a grown up, you’ll have a kid or two, your life is going to be set.

“I’m not old, I don’t feel old, it’s a bit daunting.”

Good Morning Britain is on ITV, weekdays at 6am.
