Simply Red star Mick Hucknall puts his womanising past down to "seeking approval with the opposite sex".
The 46-year-old, who is expecting his first child with partner GABRIELLA WESBERRY in June (07), has dated beauties including Helena Christensen and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
He says, "I think that most amateurish psychologists would say that, given my upbringing, I would probably be seeking some kind of approval from the opposite sex.
"So I think that became a way of seeking endless reapproval for myself.
"Plus, of course, a little bit of ego, a little bit of power and vast amount of alcohol... before you know it, you are in bed with a different woman every night."
