Beresford was born in Bristol, England. His mother is White British (English) and his father is Black British (Guyanese). He grew up in the Eastville area of Bristol and went to St Thomas More Catholic School.
Beresford primarily works for ITV West Country based in Bristol, originally as an autocue operative in August 2004, but later retrained as a weather presenter. He has also presented the national ITV Weather since 26 November 2007.
He was set to join the ITV Breakfast programme Daybreak as their weather presenter on a permanent basis, this after he made a guest appearance, presenting on 16 March 2012, however he quit for personal reasons, but still continued to present on a stand-in basis for Laura Tobin. Daybreak was axed on 25 April 2014; it was replaced by a new show, Good Morning Britain where Beresford has continued to provide cover for Tobin. He appears both in the studio and on location at events elsewhere.
Beginning on 30 April 2013, Alex presented a three-part series for Channel 4 called The World's Weirdest Weather. The following year, he hosted four-part Channel 4 series Britain's Most Extreme Weather which began airing on 28 April 2014. In June 2015 and January 2016, he presented two episodes of ITV's Tonight programme.
Beresford runs a Diversity School Tour Project where he visits inner-city schools to talk about media careers. He was also chosen for the national role model programme for young black men by Hazel Blears. He donated a toy truck to the Evening Post Christmas Toy Appeal.
