Supermarket Sweep is heading back to our TV screens, it has been reported.

The ITV game show, hosted by the late Dale Winton, was HUGE in the 90s but finished on TV for the first time in 2001.

A one-year revival then aired in 2007 and now, a decade on from that, the show is said to be on its way back again.

The first plans were revealed last year, before original host Dale's untimely death this week.

The Daily Mirror reports that TV makers FremantleMedia are going ahead with the show's comeback.

And rumour has it that Rylan Clark-Neal could be in line to takeover as host.

A spokesperson for the company told the tabloid: "We are very sad to hear the news about Dale Winton, he was a huge star who always put his fans first.

"He was very close friend of many at FremantleMedia and our thoughts are with his loved ones at this time."

The company added that "discussions are ongoing" with regards to a new series of the hit gameshow.

Last year, FremantleMedia announced they had acquired the rights to the show and plan to beginning airing it again in 2018.

Vasha Wallace, EVP, Global Acquisitions and Development, said: "The time is ripe to bring back this all-time favourite gameshow which has travelled with such success over the years. Now, modern technology allows us the opportunity to update the show, making it relevant for a 21st century audience.

"It is a great addition to this year's MIPCOM slate and given the interest we've had already we're confident that everyone will be as excited for its return as we are."

Production company Freemantle is behind a number of huge TV shows including the likes of All Star Family Fortunes, Take Me Out, Celebrity Juice and QI.

They also make reality series including The Apprentice, The X Factor and Britain's Got Talent.
