At the time of its launch, Rylan admitted he felt the pressure to live up to Dale’s legacy.

Speaking to The Guardian he said: “This is his show and it will always be his show but if I can fill even an inch of his shoes then I’ll be very happy.

“When people watch, they’ll feel Dale’s still a part of it because of the terminology we’re using. A contestant said ‘£50 Dale’ the other day.”

What happens to the food on Supermarket Sweep?

Rylan said the crew typically always donate left over food to charities.

He said on This Morning: “Every few days we donate all the food to food banks.

“For TV purposes we want everything looking pristine. But there is still three, four, five weeks left on that produce and it is still great. So we donate all we can.”
