Smooth soul singer Mick Hucknall has set aside $3 million (GBP2 million) from his fortunes - to build a vast forest in his memory.

The SIMPLY RED star wants the FOREST OF HUCKNALL so he can be remembered if he doesn't have a family.

Mick says, "I've had this idea to build a huge forest and donate it to the nation. I like the idea of having families running around these forests and stuff."
