Martine McCutcheon says Dale Winton's death has hit her "quite hard", but admitted his funeral was the "perfect way to say goodbye" to the TV legend.

The 42-year-old singer-and-actress performed a "really poignant" reading at the late "Supermarket Sweep" host's central London memorial on what would've been his 63rd birthday on Tuesday (22.05.18), and she was glad he was remembered with such an "exquisite" service.

Speaking at the premiere of her new film "The Bromley Boys" at Wembley Stadium on Thursday night (24.05.18), she exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I did a reading for him and it was really poignant and really perfect for him.

"It's hit me quite hard, but I know the service was exquisite and it was perfect for him.

"If you have to say goodbye it was a perfect way to say goodbye."
