Dale began his career in the entertainment industry when he DJ’ed on the London club circuit in the 1970s, before making the switch over to television in the late 1980s.

He is best-known for presenting hit game show ‘Supermarket Sweep’, which ran from 1993 to 2000, before being revived in 2007.

Dale also hosted 18 series of the lottery programme, ‘In It To Win It’, fronting the show until its run came to an end in 2010.

More recently, he filmed the Channel 5 travel series ‘Dale Winton’s Florida Fly Drive’. The four-part travel documentary was pulled from the schedule following the news of his death but eventually aired the following month.
