Yes.... Puerto del Carmen is a much darker place without Mike. He has been in hospital for a few weeks with an ongoing health problem, but this was still a terrible shock to us all. I miss him terribly.

RIP my friend.

Wow! What a shock. Always had great banter with Mike although hadn't been in recently.

Sad loss to the Island and poor Emma :(

RIP Mike.

Very shocked by this, didn't know he was ill and it doesn't seem like that long since I spoke to him.

So very sorry to hear this.
Go out, do stuff

He had kidney stones which got infected... and that's what sadly took him away from us. They haven't changed the voicemail at the restaurant yet - gave me a hell of a shock when I phoned a week or so ago.

Still the same people at the moment Jules... just obviously not Mike. Daniella is there, as well as Emma. Emma's daughter has popped in to help a bit too.... although she normally lives off-island xx
