DALE WINTON HAS DIED
TV presenter Dale Winton, who hosted Supermarket Sweep, has died at the age of 62, his agent says. Dale passed away at his home on Wednesday 18 April 2018.
He was most famous for Dale's Supermarket Sweep which ran on TV from 1993 to 2000.
In a statement, his agent said: 'It is with great sadness that we can confirm the passing of Dale Winton who died at home earlier today.
'While we know many will share this terrible loss, we ask that you respect the family's privacy at this time of grief.'
Dale last appeared on Loose Women in 2016 where he talked to Andrea, Nadia, Kaye and Josie about having a difficult year with health issues and a bad break-up.
Our thoughts are with his friends and family at this sad time.
SHE GOT A TEXT!
Our Ruth Langsford got all teary reading a 'love letter' text she wrote to husband Eamonn Holmes - but waited the whole show without a reply.
But just seconds after coming off air, her mobile phone pinged and Eamonn had been in touch. Janet Street-Porter quickly took the phone to share what Eamonn had replied to Ruth's love note - and it was equally as soppy.
Unfortunately, Stacey Solomon still hadn't had a reply from her boyfriend Joe Swash!

Baroness Doreen Lawrence gave her last ever TV interview to talk about the murder of her son Stephen 25 years ago.
And Doreen explained she doesn’t focus on her son Stephen’s killers and that it’s time to move on to the next chapter of her life.
Asked what’s kept her going over the past 25 years, she said: 'I think my other two children and also to know that Stephen had a life and I needed to fight for him. That’s what I’ve been doing – his name, his legacy, what we’ve achieved over the years, the Trust, how it’s working to help other people – those are all the positive things, that’s what’s kept me going.'
'I look at my children – your children are so important to you. Always, we tend to take our children for granted. You think they’re going to be there all the time. For me, seeing them, I need to make sure that they have a life. At times you put your own feelings to one side and put one foot in front of the other.'
'I always try to be really focussed. My focus has always been to make sure that my children are fine, to protect them. Stephen didn’t have a voice, I was his voice – but I didn’t allow it to sort of swallow me up. If you did that you’d never move forward.'
BOY GEORGE TALKS ABOUT EXPERIENCING PANIC ATTACKS
We talked fashion, body image and cups of tea withBoy George as he joined us on our new set - and he also revealed he once had such bad panic attacks he thought he was dying.
'When you’re in the public eye, you’re going along and then suddenly… you realise you’re not so in control of your life as you think you are,' he explained. 'I had a period in the 90s, had these really bad panic attacks, I used to go to the Royal Free Hospital and freak out. There was nothing wrong with me. I thought, ‘I’m dying"'
'Eventually somebody just said to me, "You need to learn how to breathe, change your diet, maybe try yoga…" just calming down,' Boy George added.
'It wasn’t chest pains... just panic. It’s not logical. Sometimes there’s no symptoms, you’re just like, "What’s wrong with me?" You just lose it. I think it’s really hard to diagnose. It can be food, it can be too much coffee, it can be stress.'
