Towie's Norcross plans TV show for Leigh Grand
THE TOWIE star who turned his Brentwood nightclub into a household name is planning to do the same to The Grand in Leigh.
Mick Norcross is in talks with two television production companies to put the landmark hotel on the big screen and put Leigh on the map.
Mick, 48, from Bulphan, has sensationally quit the hit ITV 2 reality show The Only Way is Essex and said his famed Sugar Hut nightclub will no longer be a venue for filming.
Instead he hopes to create his own show on the hotel in Leigh Broadway. He said: “It won’t feature in Towie, but I’ve got two production companies that want to film our own show with the Grand.
“It would be our own show about the development of the Grand or about its operation.
“It can only be good for Leigh. We won’t be doing anything wrong. It’s in our interest to have Leigh looking good.
“It will be putting Leigh on the map.”
