While we like a man who can own up to his misdemaneours, Mick Hucknall's 'apology' in The Guardian today smacks of showing off. The Simply Red crooner has said sorry to all the women he slept with (and presumably, didn't call back) during the height of his fame, blaming his rock n roll rampaging on his absent mother.

'Between 1985 and 1987, I would sleep with about three women a day, every day' he says. 'I never said no. I wanted the love from every single woman on the planet because I didn't have my mother's love.'

Yeah yeah, good one Mick. Anyway, if his calculations are anything to go by, he's done the wild thing more times than we've had hot dinners. His tally literally runs into the thousands. And he's also pretty good with dates. Who can remember what they were up to in the Eighties?

Perhaps his memory's playing tricks on him...
