The cast and crew of The Only Way Is Essex are reportedly offered bereavement counselling by ITV following the sudden death of former star Mick Norcross last week.

ITV has reportedly offered the cast and crew of The Only Way Is Essex access to counsellors following the tragic death of former cast member Mick Norcross last week.

The 57-year-old was found dead at his home on Thursday afternoon, hours after posting a final tweet that read: "At the end remind yourself that you did the best you could. And that is good enough."

The businessman appeared on the early series of the ITVBe reality show with his son Kirk Norcross, while his venue Sugar Hut, which was regularly used as a filming venue, became synonymous with TOWIE.

"Mick was so popular with everyone on set, not just in front of the cameras, but with the staff working behind the scenes too," a source told The Sun.

"Straight away Lime Pictures let everyone know that they have a counselling team on hand to help to offer them free bereavement counselling at this time. This is something they always do brilliantly.

"Everyone has been devastated by the news of his death. He was so charming and welcoming especially when it came to inviting everyone to his nightclub The Sugar Hut. He will be greatly missed."

Mick's exact cause of death has not been disclosed although Essex Police have confirmed that there appeared to be no suspicious circumstances at play.
