The television presenter Dale Winton died from natural causes, his agent has said.

The Supermarket Sweep star, who was 62, was found dead in his north London home in April, just weeks after he had moved in.

The office of Dale Winton’s long-time agent, Jan Kennedy, has said “the coroner investigating the death of Dale Winton has found death by natural causes”.

Winton was probably most famous for presenting the daytime TV gameshow Supermarket Sweep from 1993 to 2000.

He also hosted Touch The Truck, Hole In The Wall and the National Lottery game show In It To Win It.

David Walliams, Martine McCutcheon and Christopher Biggins were among the stars who attended a funeral service in central London in May, on what would have been Winton’s 63rd birthday.

The send-off included a performance of One Love by boyband Blue and an impersonation of Winton courtesy of the comedian Jon Culshaw.

Ms Kennedy said in a statement after his death: “It is with great sadness that we can confirm the passing of Dale Winton who died at home earlier today.

“While we know many will share this terrible loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this time of grief.”


TV stars including Paul O’Grady, Davina McCall and Graham Norton paid tribute to the man David Walliams described as “always outrageous and hilarious”.

Winton had opened up about his battle with depression, triggered by a break-up, in 2016.

He told ITV’s Loose Women: “Listen, there are worse things in the world – but I had depression and I didn’t realise.”

Scotland Yard previously said the star’s death was being treated as unexplained, but not suspicious.
