Reality TV Personality Dale Bowes Loses Cancer Battle



Dale Bowes

Dale Bowes, a star member of the British television show ‘Steph’s Packed Lunch,’ has reportedly tragically passed away at the young age of 28. Bowes had been living with an incurable synovial sarcoma since 2021.

Synovial sarcoma is a rare form of cancer that affects the tissue around your joints. Most of the time it appears in your hips, knee, ankle or shoulder. It’s a slow-growing cancer with symptoms that develop over time.

Steph’s Packed Lunch is described as being a show in which, “Steph McGovern presents a live lunchtime show featuring celebrity guests, fantastic food and the best entertainment, lifestyle and consumer stories making the headlines.” It is considered a successful television program.

Talk TV’s Gavin Wilson put out the following remembrance of Bowes, “RIP Mr Dale Bowes. “A much loved Lunchmate of our @stephlunch @packedlunchc4 family!”

A GoFoundMe page established for Bowes reads as following,

By November 2023, Dale was experiencing a lot of pain again from his cancer growing. There was also a tumour growing around a blood vessel causing more problems for Dale. To prevent further issues or pain, Dale started chemo again in December 2023 where he wore a chemo bag at home for 24 hours once a week for 3 weeks which made him very unwell. Dale returned to hospital on January 30th with difficulty breathing and his whole body had become inflated. He was placed on the High Dependency Unit (HDU) to have stents to remove blockages in his chest and heart. Dale still remained hopeful, sharing his journey online as much a he could. Dale returned home once the blockages had been dealt with and continued to try lead a normal life doing the thing he loved, such as ghost hunting, whilst he had radiotherapy.

In March 2024, we got the news we had been dreading. There were no more treatment options for Dale as he had become too unwell. Dale was transferred to the care of St Gemma’s Hospice and returned home. Within a week, Dale was placed on an oxygen machine at home. Dale continued to get worse until he was admitted into St Gemma’s Hospice on the 25th of March 2024 for end of life care. Dale continues to fight despite all of the odds and is an inspiration to us all.


Rest in peace Dale Bowes!
