Kirk added the caption: ‘To be honest I’m proud of what I’m doing with my life!

‘I think @Tesco @tesconews should teach their staff some manners!

‘I suffer from depression and anxiety this definitely hit me hard! So thanks to the lady that said this to me!’

Fans were quick to show their support for Kirk, who is a father of two. One replied: ‘After watching TOWIE recently I would say you have gone up in the world. You are hard working and are earning an honest living for your family, good luck to you.’

Another added: ‘Don’t let it get you down Kirk lad.’

A third commented: ‘You’re doing something much better in my eyes. You should be proud of your past but excited about your future. Construction is a tough industry but the rewards can be much larger than bits and bobs on TV! Keep your head held high.’
