Many years before he found fame on TOWIE, Kirk Norcross was born in Essex to mum Julie Lloyd and dad Mick Norcross.

He has an older brother called Daniel as well as a younger half-brother, Mason, and half-sister, Hollie.

Kirk’s parents split when he was 5 and he was raised by his mum. The family lived on a council estate and Kirk admits it was tough at times.

After leaving school with no qualifications, Kirk Norcross moved in with his dad and started working as a promoter at Mick’s nightclub Sugar Hut.

The venue became well known when it was used as a location on hit ITV2 show The Only Way Is Essex, which hit screens in October 2010.

Kirk was a member of the TOWIE cast from the very beginning. His relationship with co-star Amy Child featured heavily in the show.

After the romance ended Kirk started dating Lauren Pope and they even had matching nose jobs done in June 2011 but they split a month later.

The Essex boy is known for liking the ladies and claimed in 2013 to have slept with up to 1,000 women over the previous 10 years.

Kirk left TOWIE in the third series and entered the Celebrity Big Brother house in January 2012. He was evicted after 16 days.

In the summer of 2012 he starred in a raunchy photoshoot with Jodie Marsh and they had a brief romance.

Kirk Norcross returned to TOWIE for a short stint in series 7 before hitting the headlines in May 2013 when pictures of him performing a sex act on himself in front of a webcam emerged online.

It didn’t stop him from finding love again. In October 2013 Kirk got engaged to American model Cami Li but they called it off a month later.

He was spotted getting cosy with Geordie Shore’s Vicky Pattison after the break-up. It didn’t last, though Vicky later said that she thinks she could have fallen in love with the TOWIE star.

Kirk loves to sing and recorded a charity single in February 2014. He also impressed fans by performing a cover of Rude by Magic! in a video uploaded that August.
