Dale Winton is one of the most popular stars on television today. For over 25 years his warm and winning ways have made him one of Britain's most popular and powerful personalities on television, radio, and with live audiences everywhere. But his cheerful television persona hides the fact that his personal life has been marred by tragedy. Refreshingly open and honest, My Story not only covers his difficult rise to fame and the poverty he experienced before becoming a household name, 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, but 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: My Story also covers his plastic surgery, his lifelong battle with the scales, and reveals for the first time the complicated truth about his sexuality. (2002-10-18)

The problems, pain and the personalities are all uncovered, as Dale Winton - one of today's most popular entertainers - deals in depth with the highs and lows of a life in the spotlight, from his beginnings as a DJ on the London club circuit to media success with his prime-time television shows.Review:
Dale Winton, his story, sun-tanned warts and all. There is more to his career than seven series of Supermarket Sweep, groundbreaking though that programme was in its time (weekdays 10.00 am). He started out as a DJ in 1974, breaking into television in 1989. The supermarket show was one of the great popular hits of the Nineties. Since then he has gone on to present, among many other shows, The National Lottery and Pets Win Prizes. But there's another story, a personal, private story not untouched by tragedy. Perhaps his fans don't want the truth but would rather stick with the myth and legend that is the Dale Winton phenomenon. Anyway, his publishers estimate this 'will make compelling reading for millions'. We'll see.
