After Rylan continuously fuelled speculation of a Supermarket Sweep reboot, ITV confirmed plans for the programme in July.

When the news broke, Rylan wrote on Twitter: "Been waiting a while to say this but it's finally time to GO WILD IN THE AISLES ONCE AGAIN! Supermarket Sweep is back, and I can’t wait for you to CHECK IT OUT."

The former X Factor singer was reportedly picked for the reboot of the classic game show - which was presented by the late Dale Winton from 1993 until 2007 - because producers think his lively personality will bring a touch of the old version.

A source told The Sun newspaper's TV Bizarre Column: "It was felt that nobody else was better suited to take over the role which was synonymous with Dale for so long. Rylan has a personality that will allow him to conjure up all the campery of old while still making the role his own."

Since then, Rylan has revealed that the new series will contain a tribute to the late Dale Winton, who hosted the show from 1993 to 2001.

Rylan told RadioTimes.com: "We're definitely going to have a nod to Dale. That was one of the big things when I agreed to do the job was that I wanted to have a nod to Dale, somewhere in the supermarket which we've managed.

"That's all I'm going to say about it, but it was the one thing I really wanted."

Dale died from natural causes, aged just 62, in April last year.
