Mick Norcross Dead: TOWIE Star Passes Away Aged 57

Former TOWIE star Mick Norcross dies aged 57- tributes pour in 	        	       The reality TV star passed away on Thursday

The Sugar Hut nightspot owner and father of Kirk Norcross was found dead at his home in Bulphan, Essex at 3.15pm yesterday afternoon (January 21 2021); with Essex Police confirming his death is not being treated as suspicious.

Norcross first appeared in the reality show in 2011 in his position as owner of Sugar Hut, a Brentwood nightclub which was often attended by the cast.

'Thank you for the many memories in the sugar hut, the wild parties, the advice and dropping me off to get my R8.

"Sadly, a man inside was pronounced dead", police said in a statement.

Words of tribute poured in after the news of his death spread, with former TOWIE colleagues describing him as a "gentleman" and a "legend of Essex". RIP Mick Many fantastic memories, So Sad!

At 6.50pm on Thursday evening, Mick's friend and TOWIE co-star Mario Falcone replied with a broken heart emoji. Always such a gentleman and so kind.

Mick, who rose to fame as the businessman behind the Essex hotspot on the ITV2 series, also posted a haunting final tweet just hours before his body was discovered.

The police spokesman said the death was "not being treated as suspicious and a file will be prepared for the coroner".

Gemma was one of many TOWIE stars to pay tribute to Mick, saying in an Instagram post: "ALWAYS A GENTLEMAN". My thoughts are with his family'.


The cast: Mick made his TOWIE debut in 2011 during the show's second season.

The pair dated them briefly during their time on the show.

Mario previously spoke out about his battle with depression in an interview with OK!

He said at the time: 'I had no idea that Gemma was so upset. I would never allow that to happen in my venue.

Mick went on to have a brief romance with Maria Fowler, who also starred on the show and was 13 years his junior.

Tributes were soon paid to the star. Let this be ANOTHER reason to check in on people and ask if they are ok.

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'.

"There have been periods when people couldn't build or it was reduced numbers on site", explained the source in reference to Mick's work as a property developer during the coronavirus pandemic.
