Description

Dale Winton is currently one of the most popular stars on television. For over 25 years his winning ways have made him one of Britain's most popular and powerful media personalities, as well as with live audiences everywhere. However, his personal life has been marred by poverty and tragedy, and this memoir not only covers his difficult rise to fame but also his determination not to let a tragic childhood blight his adult life. It is a disarmingly honest account of his relationship with his parents, his bullying father who died on the day of his bar mitzvah, and particularly the very close relationship he had with his beautiful but troubled mother, whose lengthy struggle with depression and carefully planned suicide has haunted him since the afternoon he found her, just days after his 21st birthday. Dale's story also deals with his lifelong problem with his weight, the plastic surgery he has undergone, and reveals the complicated truth about his sexuality.

Author Biography

Born in 1955, Dale grew up in North London. He began his career as a DJ on the London club circuit, and his first professional steps as a young aspiring broadcaster began in 1974 with the United Biscuits Industrial Radio Station. By 1977 he was presenting a five-day-a-week live programme at Radio Trent. In 1989 Dale broke into television, and in 1993 began presenting the hugely popular seven-series show, Supermarket Sweep. Since then he has presented a wide variety of prime-time shows including The National Lottery, The Other Half, Pets Win Prizes and Touch the Truck, as well as numerous one-off specials. Dale also presents Saturday afternoon's Pick of the Pops on BBC Radio 2.
