What a lovely man he was #FloridaFlyDrive," while another added: "It was sad to watch Dale last night but despite this he still made a very good and interesting programme.

Others pointed out that Dale looked in discomfort during the episode, with one tweeting: "Just switched on #floridaflydrive, Dale Winton looks so ill he couldn’t have had long left after he filmed this show." Another person wrote: "Watching #DaleWinton on his #FloridaFlyDrive and it's so sad to watch. He really doesn't seem right in himself, he walks and moves really uncomfortably."

Dale spoke about his health problems in one of his last ever interviews before his death, telling What's On TV: "I've kept a low profile because I had about four surgeries. I had a shoulder problem and a knee problem, so I took a break to get myself sorted. It meant I couldn't exercise, so I've been dieting like crazy, but then when I was asked to do this show I thought it would be fun. I'm one of those people who work to live rather than live to work, so it's been very hard work – I'm used to being in a studio but this is something wholly different! People are going to see me in a way they've never seen me before!"
