Bachelor pop-star Mick Hucknall has slammed his Lothario reputation - insisting he's rubbish at chatting women up.

The Simply Red frontman - who has previously dated singer MARTINE McCUTCHEON, tennis ace Steffi Graf and actress BRIGITTE NIELSEN - jokes that his chat-up line is "Hello, my name is Mick, can I shag you?"

He adds, "I don't have a clue what's going on most of the time. Women are very talented at that, they disarm you and then disrobe you."

But there's one more conquest on redhead Mick's list that he hasn't yet managed to snare.

He says, "I'd like to sleep with Aretha Franklin, because you'd want to sleep with anyone with a voice like that."
