Although he is gay, he’s not open about his relationship status. It is known that a break up of a relationship did cause him to suffer from long-term depression.

Is Dale Winton Married?
As far as we know, Dale is not married. However, Dale has spoken about his depression after breaking up with a partner. In 2016 he revealed that some of it was related to the breakup of that relationship.
In May 2016, in a surprising move for some, Dale admitted that he had fallen for Donald Trump during his presidential campaign – and felt compassion for the now president. He revealed himself to be something of a fan for Us politics. Drawing a comparison to his and Donald’s tan he said, “As one who has spent his entire professional life being ridiculed for my ‘fluorescent tanned complexion’, I felt compassion for the man before he even uttered a single word.”
Dale also said that he thought that Mr Trump was “truly authentic” and “fearless” and praised his battle against political correctness.
