Stars pay tribute to Dale Winton

Dale Winton dead

Dale is best known for presenting iconic gameshow Dale's Supermarket Sweep. The show has not returned to the schedules since.

His long term agent confirmed that he died at his home earlier today.

Kennedy said, "While we know many will share this bad loss, we ask that you respect the family's privacy at this time of grief".

No further details were announced.

"RIP." While former boxing champion Frank Bruno said: "Very sad to hear that Dale Winton has passed away, to to young, my thoughts are with his family".

Presenter Jonathan Ross said: "Dale Winton was a real sweetheart".

Winton's career in showbusiness began when he worked as a DJ on the London club scene before he moved into work in radio and television.

Davina McCall has been leading tributes after the death of TV presenter Dale Winton.


But it was in the 1990s that Winton became a household name, hosting daytime quiz show Dale's Supermarket Sweep.

In recent years the once prolific star disappeared from TV screens and in an interview earlier this year he claimed he was keeping a low profile after undergoing several rounds of surgery.

He told the show: "I should have taken myself off the TV but I didn't".

A year later, he appeared on TV's Loose Women and revealed he had been secretly fighting depression after going through a hard break up.

"It meant I couldn't exercise, so I've been dieting like insane, but then when I was asked to do this show I thought it would be fun".

Appearing on ITV chat show Loose Women, Winton said: "I did not want to put one foot in front of the other outside the house".

"I loved doing that show so if they wanted to do it again I would".
