While i’m sad to see him go, I don’t blame him. Sugar Hut was a hugely popular nightclub long before TOWIE came along. Since then the place has got a reputation for filmed arguements to show on TOWIE. You can’t really blame him for thinking the name of his club is starting to be dragged into the gutter. I actually think the show will suffer from no longer being able to show this pivotal cast drinking establishment.
He seems like a really decent bloke so good on him for sticking up for his staff. If any of us had a business and one of our workers was called a slag we wouldn’t like it either. Despite his vast wealth he’s never come across on screen as up himself or as someone who’s better than everyone else. Plenty of cast members in TOWIE episodes have talked down about him which is clearly out of jealousy for what he’s achieved in his life.
Mick doesn’t need the show. He’s not skint or fame hungry. He’s a down to earth family man. I just hope that quiting during a series isn’t going to ruin things for his son Kirk. I’d not put it past producers to take it out on his son by giving him less airtime. Kirk wasn’t exactly seen much last night was he? As one of my favourite cast members of any series I hope he gets himself his own television show so he’s not off screen long.
I could definately see him in a Dragons Den or Apprentice style show helping young people get an idea they have off the ground or by looking for someone to take under his wing to help with expanding his empire.
