Dale Winton

The BBC just announced that Dale Winton has died.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-43818226

The last 18 months must hold some kind of record for famous people dying.

Re: Dale Winton

Well with that tan of his he cannot be accused of just fading away Smiley

But what a surprise, looking so well yet dying so young. A man of moderate success and one who always came over as really polite and sincere. The mums and granny's certainly took a shine to him.  

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

I found the original Supermarket Sweep an entertaining fun program.

Mainly because Dale joined in and seemed to be having fun too. He never put on any airs and graces and laughed with the contestants, not at them.

Seemed sudden as he didn't appear ill before. Unless it was that usual long term illness.

Re: Dale Winton

Well men of his lifestyle - MSM to use a modern term, certainly carry a higher risk of that 'usual long term illness' by which I think you mean Aids, but why do we avoid using the terms and why must it matter in this day and age. He was certainly honest about his sexuality in later life and never one to say I'm not gay.... but my boyfriend is.

That's show business I guess, and at least like Dale there is more people being honest about it now.

What was it James Dreyfus said in the sitcom Gimme Gimme, "He's so far back in the closet he's almost in (expletive) Narnia".

A variation of "He's so far into the closet that he's got Narnian citizenship." Smiley
