The 'Supermarket Sweep' host was found dead at his London home last month at the age of 62, but authorities have yet to determine whether an inquest needs to be staged to establish the cause of his passing.

A spokesman for Senior Coroner Andrew Walker told MailOnline: "The investigation into the death of Dale Winton is being undertaken by the North London Coroner's Service and is awaiting the outcome of further enquiries.

"An inquest has not been opened at this time.

"The Coroner's Service is awaiting the outcome of further enquiries after which the Coroner will make a decision whether to open an inquest."

Police have already confirmed Dale's death was "non-suspicious" and they will submit a file to the coroner in due course.

Dale had only moved in his new home three weeks ago but his neighbours have said he "did not look great" in the lead up to his death.

The well-loved presenter took a four-year break from TV due to health issues and his battle with depression, but he appeared to be in good spirits when he returned to screens in February for his travelogue series 'Dale Winton's Florida Fly Drive'.

There was even speculation that Dale would reprise his hosting duties on 'Supermarket Sweep' next year as FremantleMedia had acquired the global format rights to the iconic shopping series and were planning to bring it back in 2019.

Dale presented the show, which sees three teams go head-to-head using their skills and knowledge of merchandise to win cash prizes, from 1993 until 2001.

He then returned for a one-off series in 2007.

Dale's sad passing was confirmed by his agent Jan Kennedy.

Jan said in a statement: "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."
