Rylan drops another huge hint he's hosting Supermarket Sweep

Dale Winton hosted the 1990s classic game show

Rylan Clark-Neal has dropped his biggest hint yet he will front a reboot of Supermarket Sweep.

The 29-year-old joked that he was reading from the wrong programme's autocue while presenting Celebrity Big Brother's Bit on the Side.

Teasing the classic game show's catchphrase made famous by original host Dale Winton, he told Channel 5 viewers: "As a popular supermarket once said, once you're at the checkout and you... oh sorry, wrong script!"

The studio audience and viewers at home immediately got the reference and seized on it as proof the series was on its way back with Rylan at the helm.

Supermarket Sweep was originally hosted by Dale Winton, who died in April aged 62.

And the consensus on social media was that Rylan would make an ideal replacement for a revamp.

One fan tweeted: "Next time I'm in the Supermarket and I hear that beep, I'll be thinking of the fun @Rylan is having on Supermarket Sweep! Yes. I'm excited."

Another wrote: "Okay Rylan just basically confirmed he's doing Supermarket Sweep."

A third posted: "Oh @Rylan... constantly fuelling those Supermarket Sweep rumours. For what it's worth, I'd love to see him host a revival!"

Rylan sparked rumours last week when he tweeted a picture that appeared to accidentally show documents of a Supermarket Sweep reboot, featuring his photo, on the table in front of him.

The material teased: "'It's time to go wild in the aisles once more as the classic Supermarket Sweep returns bigger, funnier, and wilder than ever before!"

It became more suspicious when Rylan, apparently realising his error, replaced the original photograph with a cropped version omitting the documents.

* Goodbye Big Brother: The Live Final is on Channel 5 at 10pm on Monday, followed by CBB's Last Bit on the Side, with Rylan, at 11.20pm.
