TOWIE star and former Sugar Hut owner Mick Norcross found dead


Former TOWIE star Mick Norcross has died aged 57. The businessman, who rose to fame as the owner of Sugar Hut nightclub on the hit ITV2 series, was pronounced dead by emergency services on Thursday evening.

Mick’s haunting last tweet, posted on Thursday morning at 7.17am, read: ‘At the end remind yourself that you did the best you could. And that is good enough.’

An Essex Police spokesman told MailOnline: ‘We were called to an address in Bulphan shortly before 3.15pm on Thursday 21 January.

‘Sadly, a man inside was pronounced dead.

‘His death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner.’

Mick described his time on TOWIE as ‘very demanding’ and ‘what it did to me as a person was quite a strange thing’ as he struggled from being ‘somebody nobody really knows’ to ‘a household name so to speak’.

He said during an interview with Echo News about why he joined TOWIE in 2018 that ‘it was a decision I took just to try to manoeuvre the business – the Sugar Hut – in the right way, I needed it to be portrayed in the right light and being part of the show that was the only way I could do that.’
