A police update has been issued on TV presenter Dale Winton’s death.

The Supermarket Sweep presenter passed away yesterday in his London home.

He was 62-year-old.

Police have issued an update on Winton’s passing, saying that they are investigating the “unexplained” death but that they are not treating it as suspicious.

A spokesperson for metropolitan police said:

“Police were called by London Ambulance Service at approximately 16:10hrs on Wednesday, 18 April following the death of a man, aged in his 60s, at a residential address in Whetstone.

“The death remains unexplained although at this early stage the police are not treating it as suspicious.”

Winton had been living in his north London apartment since earlier this month.

One of the presenter’s neighbours from his previous home, Iain Grant, told the Mirror that he could tell that Winton’s health was suffering.

“He moved earlier this month and when I saw him go I realised that his health wasn’t quite right, he did not look that great,” he said.

Winton’s friends have also been expressing their upset at the presenter’s passing.

Big Brother presenter Davina McCall said: “I am so, so, so sad to hear about Dale Winton – a lovely, warm, kind, sensitive, generous soul with a touch of naughty. RIP.”

“I’m so very shocked and sad… He was a joy to be with at all times,” said Carol Vorderman.

A post-mortem examination is expected to take place soon.
