Sad breaking news that deeky pointed to.

TV presenter Dale Winton, who hosted Supermarket Sweep, has died at the age of 62, his agent has said.

He died at his home earlier on Wednesday, his long-term agent Jan Kennedy said in a statement.

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

He presented a wide range of shows, including Supermarket Sweep and Family Fortunes.

He started his career as a DJ in London and in 1986 joined BBC Bristol to present Pet Watch.

Rest In Peace Dale.

Many a sick day off school watching Supermarket Sweep, cheers Dale.
Not his biggest fan but he struck me as being a nice bloke.

Always see Dale in my head when I see Miles post for some reason
An average entertainer who has kicked the bucket... Goodness knows how many comments/likes would have been expressed on here if misc was around in the heyday of decent entertainers.

Ok. let me tell you what I think you might mean.

I think you might mean that me saying that when I see miles (who is a VERY open and proud GAY man) post, it puts an image of another gay man in my head, that that is offensive in some way?

Don't you ever form a mental image of someone who you have never seen?

I read "Miles post" as "Miles' post"... thought he'd been sending you pictures

You've got a nerve really, insinuating that you don't understand what I'm saying. You are up there with the most cryptic posters on HUKD, especially after the 8pm watershed. If you really don't understand what I'm saying then perhaps if you stopped talking in riddles, and made your point clear, then people might be able to make appropriate comments.

Goodnight wongy.

People die for reasons-politics
we tend to remember what they did in life-poltics

at the end of the day you can't say anything without being political and breaking the coc

it makes nonsense of the whole discussions bit in the address bar

When the heart stops pumping, you die, it isn't down to politics.
I never watched Supermarket Sweep so didn't know much about him, only found out he was gay from reading this thread. Saw him recently doing the Lottery I think, seemed like a personable sort of bloke.

RIP
