Gavin Wilson, of TalkTV, shared a picture of himself smiling with the star on Instagram.

He wrote: “RIP Mr Dale Bowes. A much loved Lunchmate of our @stephlunch @packedlunchc4 family!”

A GoFundMe page raising money for Dale’s funeral says he died on March 25.

The page said: “Dale continued to fight despite all of the odds and is an inspiration to us all.”

Dale had opened up to Steph about his cancer battle last March, saying: “I’ve been told that current treatments will not cure my cancer.

“One of the treatments could help me but at the moment if I deteriorate into a situation where I’m suffering I think it should be the decision of the person who is going through that.”
