The Dale Winton Story: One Of A Kind | Preview (Channel 5)

Dale Winton burst onto our screens with Supermarket Sweep in 1993 and stayed there for more than 25 years, becoming one the most successful prime time presenters of his generation.

Hugely ambitious and hardworking, Dale was driven to win the nation's love after of the tragic suicide of his mother. This documentary tells that story for the first time.

Never-seen-before home footage offers an intimate glimpse into Dale's life away from the cameras and interviews with close friends and family, including actress Claire Sweeney, impressionist Jon Culshaw, TV presenter Gloria Hunniford and his loyal godsons who reveal what an extraordinary person Dale was off-screen.

With powerful personal testimony, the programme will uncover Dale’s tragic childhood: his father died on the day of his bar mitzvah and his mother, a 1950s starlet, killed herself when he was just 21.

The programme also reveals the romantic and financial struggles on his way to realising his dream of making it as a TV star. It was a meteoric rise against the odds that saw Dale present everything from Pets Win Prizes and National Lottery: In it to Win It to Hole in the Wall, and what happened next, having turned down the job of presenting Dancing on Ice.

This programme is a celebratory tribute to the life and career of TV legend Dale Winton, who captured the hearts of the British public and became one of the nation's most beloved TV stars.

The Dale Winton Story: One of a Kind airs Saturday 16th March on Channel 5.
