Mick Norcross, who starred in the long-running ITV reality series The Only Way Is Essex, has died at the age of 57.
Norcross was reportedly pronounced dead by police, who were called to his house on Thursday. His death is not being treated as suspicious.
Norcross featured in the second season of The Only Way Is Essex, affectionately known as TOWIE, in 2011 and went on to appear in 53 episodes in total. He was an important figure on the Essex scene, having owned nightclub The Sugar Hut. His son, Kirk Norcross, was part of the original TOWIE cast.
The star posted a tweet to his 505,000 followers on Thursday morning saying: “At the end remind yourself that you did the best you could. And that’s good enough.”
So sad to hear the news today of the passing of Mr Sugarhut @micky_norcross
A very talented, friendly and fun guy, who made a huge mark on Brentwood.
A true Essex legend who will be sorely missed, our condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.
RIP Mick ❤️💔
