“There have been periods when people couldn’t build or it was reduced numbers on site,” explained the source in reference to Mick’s work as a property developer during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Mick was wanting to invest in the area and bring in new people,” they continued to The Mirror.

“There’s council land in front of the new housing development which he also paid to be looked after himself.”

The source also described Mick as “so genuine” despite finding fame on reality television.

They said: “A lot of people will come out in support when the funeral does take place. 

“I’m sure it will be a local event where lots of people will want to pay their respects.”

Mick posted a haunting final tweet just hours before his body was discovered.

It read: “At the end remind yourself that you did the best you could. And that is good enough.”
