“It’s official. I’m dead. Wow its lovely down here…nice and warm, gr8 parties…lots of rock n roll,” he wrote.

Mick wrote that after reports surfaced that he had died in a jet-ski crash on Parot Cay in the Turks and Calcos Islands.

The unconfirmed news of Hucknall’s death quickly spread through Twitter making Mick a hot topic at the time.

“relieved that my Daughter is young enough to NOT be traumatized by these delightful rumours … take a good fucking look at yourselves,” he wrote the following day.

Mick will be performing three shows in Rotterdam later this week where he will perform four songs with a full size symphony orchestra. James Blunt, Angie Stone and John Miles are also on the bill. The shows are at Ahoy on November 17, 18 and 19.

Also later this month he will release a new Christmas song called ‘Happy This Christmas’. The song will be available from simplyred.com and his Facebook page.
