The cause of Dale Winton ‘s death remains a mystery.
The Supermarket Sweep host and TV favourite was found dead at his home on April 18, aged 62.
And while police say his shock death wasn’t being treated as suspicious, a coroner has now said that he needs the result of further investigations before a cause of death can be ruled on.
Officers looking into the presenter’s death had prepared a file for the North London Coroner.
But Senior Coroner Andrew Whitaker says he’s waiting for the results of "further enquiries" into Dale’s final moments, reports the Daily Star .
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said at the time of Dale’s death: "Police were called by London Ambulance Service at approximately 16:10hrs on Wednesday, 18 April following the death of a man, aged in his 60s, at a residential address in Whetstone.
"The death remains unexplained although at this early stage the police are not treating it as suspicious.
"A post-mortem examination will be scheduled in due course. Enquiries into the circumstances by officers from Barnet continue."
Dale had been very open about his battles with depression throughout his life, and comments made by one of his friends after his death appeared to suggest that he’d talked about suicide.
However, close friend Steve Allen, who had known Dale since their teenage years, later set the record straight.
Speaking on his LBC radio show, Steve said: "He never talked about that [suicide] at all, he just said he’d had enough. His idea of having enough was he wanted to leave the country.
"He was thinking very much about leaving the country and moving somewhere else. And then he sells Regent’s Park, the place he lived in and which I knew backwards. In fact I remember seeing that house when he first bought it and it was lovely, it was where he’d always wanted to live."
