Winton's agent, Jan Kennedy, said in a statement to the Press Association on Wednesday: "It is with great sadness that we can confirm the passing of Dale Winton who died at home earlier today".

Winton spent almost a decade hosting the ITV daytime game show Supermarket Sweep between 1993 to 2001 and again when it was rebooted in 2007.

Dale presented the show, which sees three teams go head-to-head using their skills and knowledge of merchandise to win cash prizes, from 1993 until 2001.

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

This Morning viewers has slammed hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield for failing to mention Dale Winton's passing at start of show and giving him a "rushed" tribute.

The death of TV star Dale Winton at a house he moved into weeks earlier is unexplained but not being treated as suspicious, Scotland Yard said.

Police said they are continuing to investigate the circumstances of his death after being called on Wednesday afternoon to Winton's new home. Lovely man. Sad to hear the news.




Hours after first simply posting he was "heartbroken", Walliams tweeted: "Dale was the best company, always outrageous & hilarious. Kind, sweet, truthful man". He began his career as a DJ which led to work in radio.

Arguably his most famous series was Supermarket Sweep, which Dale fronted for a decade between the 90s and early 00s.

Winton, who came out as gay in his 2002 autobiography, spoke about his battle with depression in 2016 after a spell out of the limelight.

His cause of death is yet to be confirmed, but the star previously addessed his battle with depression on Loose Women, and spoke about numerous surgeries.

The registered owner of the house refused to comment when contacted, saying: "I don't want to talk about it". I feel happy for him that he's in a place now where he's probably going to be eternally young'.

The remaining episodes of Dale Winton's Florida Fly Drive were due to air on Channel 5 in June after they were postponed in the wake of the Florida school shooting.
