Unhappy UK TV Host Dale Winton Dies at 62

UK TV Host Dale Winton, Face Of ITV’s "Supermarket Sweep", Dies Aged 62
by Andreas Wiseman
April 19, 2018



UK TV and radio host Dale Winton, known for fronting popular shows including ITV’s "Supermarket Sweep" and BBC’s lottery program "In It To Win It", has died aged 62.

The host died at his home on Wednesday according to his agent Jan Kennedy.




Winton spent nearly a decade hosting the ITV daytime game show "Supermarket Sweep" between 1993 to 2001 and again when it was rebooted in 2007. Contestants on the show were tasked with running round a supermarket collecting items to win cash prizes.

He began his career as a DJ which led to work in radio. Most recently he made a show for Viacom-owned Channel 5 called "Dale Winton’s Florida Fly Drive", the final episodes of which were due to air in June.




Kate Phillips, Controller of Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC, told the broadcaster that Winton was “an immensely well-loved individual” and praised his “wonderfully unique and special energy” that he brought to TV programmes.

He was extremely kind, brilliantly funny and was a true gentleman,” she said.

Dale Winton from the UK version of Supermarket Sweep has passed away? What a surprise because I thought he was really cool and funny and I didn't know that Supermarket Sweep had a UK version too because I only knew that Supermarket Sweep was an American game show. I wonder if the UK Supermarket Sweep will get a replacement host to replace Dale Winton as well? This is a truly sad day for all us Supermarket Sweep fans and I hope David Ruprecht is handling it well
