Dale Winton is probably most famous for his stint as a daytime telly presenter.

"He used to say to me "I've had enough" and I used to say, "Oh, you've got loads of things".

Winton's long-term agent Jan Kennedy asked for the star's grieving family's privacy to be respected.

Scotland Yard have confirmed they are investigating his death.

"Thank you Dale. X" Davina McCall described Dale as "lovely, warm, kind, sensitive, generous soul with a touch of naughty!", while David Walliams admitted he was "heartbroken" by the news.

The British TV star was most well known for presenting Supermarket Sweep and coverage of the National Lottery.

"Good night lovely man xxxxx. But I'll always feel passionate about Supermarket Sweep because if it wasn't for that show I wouldn't have done anything I've done since!"

"Yesterday, when I went to bed, I knew Dale Winton".

No further details about his death have been announced.


Dale's close friend David Walliams also paid tribute, sharing fond memories of his time with the star.

Paddy McGuinness said: "Back in the day Supermarket Sweep was the programme to watch".

Following news of Winton's death, tributes poured in from the world of entertainment.

Former Loose Women stars Sherrie Hewson and Jane McDonald also took to social media following the news.

Adil Ray added: "Very sad to hear of the passing of Presenter, Dale Winton".

More recently, he filmed a four-part travel documentary for Channel 5 entitled "Dale Winton's Florida Fly Drive".

The 62-year-old moved from his £2.9million Regent's Park apartment earlier this month and was always "very friendly" to neighbours.

Dale released an autobiography in 2002, in which he came out as gay.

Our thoughts are with Dale's friends and family at this hard time.
