TV host Dale Winton has revealed that he is "mad" for rap music and likes to wear clothes designed by rap star Jay-Z.

The 53-year-old star of Supermarket Sweep and currently presenting Hole In The Wall caught the rap bug while in the USA and can't get enough of the music as well as the fashion.

"It's all I listen to. In my car, on my iPod," he told Heat magazine. "I was listening to satellite radio in America in my car once, and this amazing record came on by this artist called Nas. It was all so exciting and clever and fresh. I went mad for it. Now, it's all about Jay-Z and The Game and Lil' Wayne for me.

He added: "I love the gear too... I wear clothes by Sean John and Jay-Z. Being a fat old man in a suit isn't really what I'm about, and I decided to be myself."
