Kirk Norcross on his special bond with Sarah Harding, Rita Ora, Sheridan Smith and Amy Childs

We always knew he was a bit of a ladies’ man.

But we had no idea just how much of a lothario Kirk Norcross actually was – until now.

The TOWIE star confesses all about the special ladies in his life in his new autobiography Essex Boy.

And in an exclusive interview, Kirk, who turns 25 this week, talks about his special relationship with Girls Aloud‘s Sarah Harding and Sheridan Smith (the Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps actress), sexy chats with Rita Ora, plus how he secretly reunited with ex co-star Amy Childs last year…

Kirk says he has slept with more than 1,000 women, making TOWIE co-star Mario Falcone‘s boast of bedding 500 seem like nothing.

‘It was one girl a week, then one a day, then sometimes two a day, and I couldn’t keep counting,’ Kirk admits.

Kirk counts many celebs among his conquests, including – almost – Rita Ora

‘She followed me on Twitter, I private messaged her, we swapped numbers… We were texting all the time and she’d call me and we’d chat for hours,’ Kirk reveals.

‘I couldn’t believe it – Rita f*****g Ora wanting to speak to me! It got flirty. She’d say I was fit and liked my muscly arms.

‘Then it got a bit ruder.

‘But after that she suddenly cut things off just as we were due to meet at her house. I’m gutted.’

He also got close toSarah Harding but admits to acting ‘like a bit of an idiot’ and ending the friendship.

‘Listen, we were friends, but I’d be lying if I said the lines didn’t get a bit blurred.

‘The exact details are for me and her to know,’ Kirk says.

Other famous flings included Sheridan Smith, Jodie Marsh and TOWIE‘s Amy Childs.

Essex Boy My Story by Kirk Norcross is out on 25 April (£12.99, Sidgwick & Jackson).
