Mick joined the cast of TOWIE in the early series and joined his son Kirk, Mark Wright and Lucy Mecklenburgh.

The much-loved TV celebrity caught the eye of Gemma Collins and the pair went out on dates during the early episodes.

He also dated fellow stars Chloe Sims and Maria Fowler. 

But in 2013 he revealed he was leaving the show over fears it was damaging the image of his nightclub.

He told The Sun at the time: "My club is an upmarket venue where people come to drink champagne and feel spoiled.

"All these rows they keep filming don’t show the club in a good light and I’m worried it’s putting people off coming, which is the last thing I want.

"I've had enough. I'm out."

Mick became a grandad following the birth of his son Kirk's child.

He became a propety developer after quitting the show and was given the green light to build a dream rural manor house in leafy Essex in 2018.

An Essex Police spokesman said: "We were called to an address in Brentwood Road, 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."
