More recently, he has starred in a Channel 5 series called Dale Winton's Florida Fly Drive.

In June 2016, he revealed that he had been battling depression after a relationship ended. He said: "I should have taken myself off the TV but I didn't."

He added: "I always thought, 'Get over yourself.' But my mum died of it. It exists and anybody out there who has had it knows it exists. I didn't want to put one foot in front of the other but for a couple of really good friends."

In January, he revealed that he had four surgeries, after problems with his shoulder and knee.
