Simply said: Sorry Mick we meant 3000 women
The Guardian runs a correction today pointing out that it had underestimated Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall's claims of how many women he had slept with.
It says: "Owing to an editing error, we said that Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall slept with more than 1,000 women in a three-year period during the mid-80s. That was meant to be more than 1,000 a year, based on his estimate of an average of three such encounters a day, as stated elsewhere in our stories (A new flame: Hucknall apology to 1,000 women he bedded, page 19, 3 December; 'I feel a bit like the antichrist', page 3, Film & Music)."
