The tweets come after a month after frontman Mick Hucknall denied he had slept with 3,000 women.

The singer, 59, told The Sunday Times that the figure had been taken wildly out of context in previous interviews.

He clarified: “In the crazy days, it was screaming girls everywhere and it felt like you were sleeping with three women a day.”

He added that his past confessions were “conflated” and that he had “no idea” what the actual figure was.
