Mick Norcross Dead: TOWIE Star Called On Boris Johnson To Act On Mental Health Crisis Before He Died
The tweet, penned by Love Island's Doctor Alex George and retweeted by Mick on New Year's Day, read: "MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS. I lost my little brother to suicide this year.
While the cause of Mick's death has not yet been confirmed, police added that it is not being treated as suspicious.
Dr Alex has been pushing for the government to review the mental health crisis ever since his brother Llŷr passed away back in July - a cause Mick and many other celebrities supported.
Mick, affectionately known as Micky on the ITV show, had also sent out a poignant tweet on the day he passed away.
"At the end remind yourself that you did the best you could. And that is good enough," he wrote.
Mick first appeared on The Only Way Is Essex during the show's second series in 2011 alongside Kirk.
He was best known for being the owner of The Sugar Hut nightclub in Brentwood, where The Only Way Is Essex cast members regularly filmed in its early days.
Mick left the show in 2013, claiming his business's involvement in the programme had damaged its reputation.
Following the news of his death, tonnes of TOWIE stars have flocked to pay tributes to him on social media.
