Simply Red star Mick Hucknall has issued a public apology for his philandering with women.

In an interview with The Guardian, the singer claimed to have slept with “about three women a day” between 1985 and 1987.

“I never said no. This was what I wanted from being a pop star. I was living the dream and my only regret is that I hurt some really good girls," the singer said.

He added: “In fact, can I issue a public apology through the Guardian? They know who they are and I'm truly sorry."

Hucknall’s decision to discuss his private life comes ahead of Simply Red’s last ever concert, due to take place in London this month. For more details, check out Gigwise Gig Tickets.

Rock Stars And Their Wives And Girlfriends

And their inevitable divorces too...

  • Albert Hammond Jr / Agyness Deyn - In June 2008, the English supermodel and Strokes guitarist were spotted in public looking very mushy for the first time. They've remained tight lipped about their relationship status, with Deyn refusing to talk about it in public. They split up last year.

  • Gene Simmons / Shannon Tweed – Simmons claims that he has shagged a phenomenal 5,000 women plus – the majority of them while he was with his partner of 23 years, the 1982 Playboy Playmate of the year Shannon Tweed. If they ever married, she could well and truly take him to the cleaners.

  • Benji Madden / Paris Hilton - Okay, she's actually a spoilt little rich girl who's done a bit of modelling on the side, but that's just enough to make our list. In March 2008, Good Charlotte guitarist Benji started dating Paris (who's a good few inches taller than him). Benji even wrote a song called 'Shine Your Light' especially for her. How disgusting.

  • Kid Rock / Pamela Anderson – Next up on the conveyor belt for the former Playboy model was Kid Rock. He met Anderson in 2001, soon after they were married, then surprise, surprise in 2006 they divorced. Since then he's been involved in public slanging matches and even a physical scrum with Tommy Lee.

  • Ric Ocasek / Paulina Porizkova - Former Cars frontman Ocasek must have a cracking personality, because we're not quite sure how he managed to marry Czech born supermodel Porizkova. The pair met in 1984 when she was just 19 and he was a married 35-year-old.

  • Travis Barker / Shanna Moakler - Former Blink 182 drummer, and now plus44 man, Travis Barker married the former Miss USA Shanna Moakler in October 2004. Unlike other fickle relationships on this list, theirs actually had longevity having been married a massive three years when they split in 2007.

  • Josh Hubbard / Agyness Deyn – Before Albert Hammond, Agyness was in a four year relationship with Josh Hubbard from underachieving indie outfit The Paddingtons. They split earlier this spring.

  • Mick Jagger / Jerry Hall – The Rolling Stones man is the serial model shagger of our list, with alleged conquests including Sophie Dahl, Uschi Obermaier, Carla Bruni, Janice Dickinson and Luciana Gimenez under his belt. He married Jerry Hall in 1990 having already fathered two children to her, before they split in 1999.

  • Mick Jagger / L'Wren Scott – The 64-year-old's current beau is former American model L'Wren Scott who at 6 feet 4 inches (193cm) tall dwarfs Jagger. She's also 23 years his junior.

  • Ice T / Coco Marie Austin – She's got air bags for breasts, looks completely fake and flashes body parts in public, yet Ice T still looks like one proud guy. They married in 2005, the 26-year-old bride 21 years younger than her husband.

  • David Bowie / Iman – When you're one of the most influential figures in music and have dashing good looks, you're always going to secure a stunning wife. In 1992 Bowie duly married Somali born supermodel Iman Abdulmajid, the mother of his daughter Alexandria Zahra Jones.

  • Pete Doherty / Kate Moss – The relationship that propelled Pete Doherty from being a genius lyricist and music with a heroin habit, to a full-blown dirty junkie scumbag shagging a supermodel who may, or may not, play in some mildly successful indie band - well, the tabloid press' eyes anyway.

  • Jamie Hince / Kate Moss – One half of The Kills, Jamie Hince, didn't let the fact that he was having Pete Doherty's sloppy seconds put him off. Nope, once the Babyshambles man was out of the way in summer 2007, this paved the way for Hince to move in.

  • Seal / Heidi Klum - Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adeola Samuel (yep, that's really his full name), started seeing Klum while she was still pregnant with her former partner's baby in 2004. He now has two children to the German supermodel.

  • Marilyn Manson / Dita Von Teese – Manson was already a massive fan of the Burlesque model before he met her; in fact he was even a member of her website. They got together in 2001 after Manson asked her to appear in a video – a shoot she couldn't make. Marriage followed in December 2005, then almost exactly a year later they divorced.

  • Rod Stewart / Rachel Hunter - Just like Jagger, Rod Stewart has a taste for models. By the time he married supermodel Hunter in 1990, he'd already had relationships with Dee Harrington and Kelly Emberg. Stewart and Hunter divorce after 16 years together in 2006.

  • Rod Stewart / Penny Lancaster – Aged 62, Rod married 36-year-old model Penny Lancaster aboard the yacht Lady Ann Magee moored in the Italian port of Portofino. Some men have all the luck...

  • Dave Navarro / Carmen Electra – A complete sucker for rock stars, Electra's previous conquests include Tommy Lee, Prince and even B-Real from Cypress Hill. Eventually in 2003, the glamour model married Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction and Red Hot Chili Peppers fame. Guess what happened next? They inevitably divorced in July 2006.

  • Nikki Sixx / Donna D'Errico – The Motley Crue man was married to Playboy Playmate Brandi Brandt for seven years, before moving on to another Playboy Playmate and Baywatch star Donna D'Errico who he was married to for ten years until 2007. He's now dating tattoo artist Kat Von D.

  • Paul Banks / Helena Christensen – The Danish supermodel once lived with the late INXS frontman Michael Hutchence and also dated Grand Avenue frontman Rasmus Walter Hansen. Earlier this year she got together with Interpol frontman Paul Banks who at aged 30 is nine years her junior.
