Fears for Towie stars after Mick Norcrosss death as cast offered mental health aid – Mirror Online

Towie stars are being offered mental health help after the death of Mick Norcross.

ITV bosses are on high alert following the tragic loss of show favourite Mick, 57.

The welfare push comes after a string of problems linked to other hit shows, such as Love Island and The Jeremy Kyle Show.

Mick – who ran Essex nightclub Sugar Hut – was found dead on Thursday after sending a final tweet that read: “At the end remind yourself that you did the best you could. And that is good enough.”

Last night, a show source said: “Mick’s death has come as a shock to everyone and Lime Pictures, who make TOWIE, have called round all cast members, past and present, to tell them they have multiple psychologists on hand. They don’t want anyone to feel alone.”

Mick’s former co-star Amy Childs confirmed that worried TOWIE bosses had been in touch since his death. She said: “We got calls and messages on Friday to make sure we were all coping OK.”

Amy described Mick as the “loveliest of guys” and said she was in “total shock”. She also said his death was likely to be covered in the ITVBe show.

TOWIE’s mental health push comes amid growing scrutiny of how reality TV affects the people who take part.

In May 2019, The Jeremy Kyle Show was axed after 14 years following the death of a guest. Love Island also faced a backlash after it was rocked by three suicides, then last February, former host Caroline Flack took her own life.

Yesterday, reports emerged that Mick – who starred in TOWIE from 2011 – had been facing debts of £8.5million.
