www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/celebritynews/ 8178285/Mick-Hucknall-apologises-to-1000-women-he- slept-with.html

The way I am reading this is he is that firstly he is sorry for being unfaithful to whoever he was with at the time - ok I get that.

But I am finding this a little creepy on other levels because I think if you apologise to your groupies, it implies you think you were taking advantage of them at the time? Or is it that he misled them all into thinking they were his only partner (at a rate of 3 a day, that'd be hard to do).

(please MN lawyers note I am not saying that Mick Hucknall has done anything wrong...)

DP reckons I am overthinking this which is quite possible grin

I am just gobsmacked that 1000 people would want to sleep with such a tool. I hate his music and he looks like he slept in a bin.

1000 people wanted to sleep with Mick Hucknall!!! shock

Ewwww - maybe they were drunk? hmm

I guess statistically he must have had at least 1 or 2 mumsnetters.

Come on ladies, own up!!! grin

ElspethDiggory you just made me snort my tea - I haven't heard anyone called a tool for ages.

As for the apology. Maybe he is just acknowledging he wasn't very good at it.

Sounds to me like he doesn't regret it in the least and is pretty pleased with himself - no need to mention numbers (a day or total) surely if the point is to attempt to make it up a bit to these women.

Just sounds like boasting to me.

And what sort of crap is this;

"He has blamed his womanising behaviour on being abandoned by his mother at the age of three. "

I hope that is just bad reporting.

Apologises for what - being a crap shag?

Portofino Fri 03-Dec-10 10:41:04

For inflicting his ugliness upon them? grin

slug Fri 03-Dec-10 10:42:21

So, typical man. Hoe many do you think he really slept with. I'm thinking about 25-30 the rest are just exaggeration hmm

tethersjinglebellend Fri 03-Dec-10 10:42:38

They had to see him naked.

They deserve compensation, never mind an apology.

LadyBlaBlah Fri 03-Dec-10 10:50:29

Has he got an album to promote?

hobbgoblin Fri 03-Dec-10 10:50:35

He is an utter slime ball. This just confirms it. His lips are all moist.

GreenButton Fri 03-Dec-10 11:12:27

I heard stories, from diverse sources, about him shagging Manchester students at his club, and that he had S&M tastes - I thought it was an urban myth, not so sure now...

AliceWorld Fri 03-Dec-10 11:13:15

I don't get what he's apologising for either. Does he imagine all the women he slept with were madly in love with him, wanted marry him and have his babies, so he's let the down hmm. So noone slept with him cos he was famous and it would make a good claim to fame then hmm. So his apology seems to be on the basis of some very gendered assumptions to me.

GG - there aint no such thing as overthinking grin

notnowbernard Fri 03-Dec-10 11:14:58

I know someone who shagged him

She said he wasn't all that

Unprune Fri 03-Dec-10 11:20:01

Ew. Just ew.

In need of a bit of publicity. Has he got a Christmas album out, or something?

GoldenGreen Fri 03-Dec-10 11:26:08

grin at "she said he wasn't all that" - so there we have our answer!

GreenButton Fri 03-Dec-10 11:27:24

Willy size anyone?

Janos Fri 03-Dec-10 11:28:25

My initial response to this thread title was ...yes, I can see why.

Imagine, sleeping with Mick Hucknall. Bleee....

Yes, I'm sure all the women you slept with were in love with you and feel awfully let down, Mick hmm

notnowbernard..I know of someone, but it's a friend of a friend type situation.

ledkr Fri 03-Dec-10 11:29:11

i know someone who used to roadie for him.I have textd him to find out if he needs to apologise and am awaiting his response. Cant say the ginger pubes would have done it for me tbh grin

Beachcomber Fri 03-Dec-10 11:31:35

I know this sounds terribly prim, but we are in the feminist section so I'm going to say it.

I think slagging off a man on sexual prowess, penis size, ugliness is really patriarchal.

That we criticise him for his womanising/ego/bizarre 'apology' is one thing, but the rest, well, it just 'ain't very sisterly IYSWIM.

LadyBlaBlah Fri 03-Dec-10 11:34:30

He is quite foul though, Beachcomber, so maybe you could make an exception wink

GreenButton Fri 03-Dec-10 11:34:42

Sorry Beachcomber you have a valid point, my head was in "Sleb Twaddle" mode.

TinselinaBumSquash Fri 03-Dec-10 11:36:40

I can;t belive that 1000 people would sleep with Mick Hucknall!
However this is proably becuase my Dad looks like him to the extent that he went to a Simply Red gig and got mobbed... securit had to usher him out the building. grin
