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

The Dale’s Supermarket Sweep star died at his home earlier on Wednesday.

His long-term agent Jan Kennedy said in a statement to the Press Association: “It is with great sadness that we can confirm the passing of Dale Winton who died at home earlier today.

He famously portrayed a version of himself in the Leith-set film Trainspotting,
