TOWIE star Kirk is out of the house

After being shown weeping over a letter from his dad, Kirk Norcross was evicted from the Celebrity Big Brother house tonight.

It was a shock for host Brian Dowling – and for Kirk, 23 – who was a very popular contestant and only received one vote from his fellow housemates.

‘I’m here because I’m me and that’s fair enough,’ the Essex boy declared.

Kirk, who had a crush on fellow housemate Georgia Salpa, was once loved-up with The Only Way Is Essex‘s Lauren Pope. The pair even spent £4,200 on his’n’hers nose jobs – but they broke up for good last summer.

Now he says he’s in love with girlfriend Gemma who he split up with before entering the house.
