Supermarket Sweep was originally hosted by Dale Winton from 1993 to 2001, with a brief revival in 2007. 

The iconic host passed away from natural causes in April 2018 aged just 62. 

During Wednesday’s episode of the ITV2 show, competitor Will mistakenly referred to the much-loved late host, telling the former X Factor star: ‘Thank you, Dale.’

The blunder left Rylan visibly shocked, while the audience and other competitors fell about with laughter.

He also revealed his disappointment that he never got to seek Dale’s approval before taking up the mantle. 

He told The Sun: ‘The most gutting thing when Dale died was I never had the opportunity to ask him about it.

‘Every job I’ve inherited, like Strictly’s It Takes Two and the radio show with Zoe Ball or Big Brother with Emma Willis, I’ll always ring them first and say, ‘Are you OK with me doing it? And genuinely, if they said no, I wouldn’t have taken the show…

Great show: Supermarket Sweep, which saw contestants run around a mocked-up shop collecting shopping items, was a hit in the 1990s and was later revived

‘If Dale was still around, he’d be doing it, as it’s his show but sadly he’s not, hopefully if a millionth of the people say, “Oh, he’s done a good job,” I’ll be happy, as Dale is probably the toughest act I’ve ever had to follow.’

The new version is 30 minutes longer and will be slightly naughtier than the original having moved the show from its traditional morning slot to weekday evenings.

Across the series an array of celebs will be popping in for a trip round the aisles, including national treasures Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes, The Only Way is Essex’s Pete Wicks and Bobby Norris, Love Island’s Maura Higgins and Tommy Fury, Celebs Go Dating’s Tom Read Wilson and Made in Chelsea’s Georgia ‘Toff’ Toffolo.
