But this is not the first time they've clashed, with Alex storming off the set in 2019.
As the panel – made of Piers, Susanna Reid, Gemma Collins and Charlotte Hawkins – discussed gambling, Gemma calls the discussion "boring".
Alex then chimes in: "Seriously, I'm really bored now. Can we move on?"
However, Piers slams him down, saying: "You know what mate, you're doing the weather. Why don't you keep your boredom to yourself?
"Your job is the weather. By the way, here's your entire forecast: it's going to be hot the entire week with a little bit of thunderstorms."
When Susanna asked if that's true, Alex stood up and said: "Yeah, I'm going home."
As he walks off Piers says: "Look at him the little drama queen. Go on, off you go. It's going to be hot with thunderstorms. But there's no need for him, is there? What's the point of him? It's going to be hot all week."
Susanna says: "You're never like this with Laura [Tobin]. Why are you so rude to Alex?"
Piers replies: "Because she's not as annoying as he is."
Then after a bit more joking, Alex returns with a Love Island water bottle – and the show continues.
While Alex was joking in this footage, earlier today things were properly heated on Good Morning Britain as they discussed Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's bombshell interview.
Giving his views on the Royals' interview, Alex told Piers: "I understand that you don't like Meghan Markle, you've made it so clear a number of times on this programme.
"I understand you've got a personal relationship with Meghan Markle, or had one and she cut you off… She's entitled to cut you off if she wants to.
"Has she said anything about you since she cut you off? I don't think she has, but yet you continue to trash her."
Interrupting Alex, Piers got up and walked off set, huffing: "I'm not having this".
Piers and Meghan famously went for a drink in June 2016, around the time that she started dating Prince Harry, but he claims he never heard from her again.
Making his way to the studio exit, he continued: "Sorry, see you later, I can't do this."
Exasperated Alex responded: "Absolutely diabolical behaviour, I'm sorry but Piers spouts off on a regular basis and we all have to sit here and listen.
"From 6.30 to 7am yesterday, it was incredibly hard to watch. He has the ability to come in here and talk from a position that he doesn't fully understand."
As he trailed off, shocked Susanna said that everybody needed a "break", as the show cut to advertisements.
When the show returned, Charlotte Hawkins took over – welcoming viewers back as though nothing had happened while Alex, Susanna, and Piers remained off-screen.
Piers returned to the set almost 20 minutes later, where he slammed Alex for "launching a personal derogatory attack" on someone that he works with.
Piers said: "What we need to do is talk about it in a civilised manner, considering we work on the same show on the same team."
After the show had finished, the host admitted to being a "snowflake" and said he "went for a cool-down" after the tense row.
