TV presenter Matthew Wright revealed that in the tribute, comedian Culshaw alternated between his own and Winton's voice as he read a poem.He said: "I think he would have b****y loved it if I'm honest. The best bit was Jon Culshaw at the end.

Speaking after the funeral, Turner said the service was "beautiful" and that "Dale was there".
She added, of Winton: "He would have been chuffed to have seen us all there."It was very emotional, but it was beautifully produced and polished. You wouldn't normally say that but in this instance it's worth saying, and the people who put it together did the most magnificent job."I'm truly glad I was there."

Hunniford said she would remember Winton for "that tan, of course".She added: "A lot of people paid their respects. I think, when you get a shock when somebody dies suddenly and they are so young, the first thing you feel is, oh gosh I never got to say goodbye."And that's why today was very special. We all got a chance, in our own ways, to say our own small goodbye to Dale."
