TOWIE’S Kirk Norcross says pregnant ex girlfriend Lauren Pope is the ‘love of his life’ nine years after split

Former The Only Way Is Essex star Kirk Norcross has admitted his ex Lauren Pope is “the love of his life”, nine years after their breakup.

The 31 year old former reality star, who now unblocks drains for a living, has two children daughter Violett and son Harry, who he shares with Danielle Louise Carr.

Meanwhile, Kirk’s ex Lauren, 37, recently announced she is pregnant with her first child with millionaire boyfriend Tony Keterman.

Speaking to Closer magazine, Kirk has opened up about his former flame Lauren. He said: “Even thinking about Lauren now is hard. The girl was the love of my life. The bond we had was very hard to describe.

“I believe it wasn’t for TV and social media, I would have spent the rest of my life with her! We may well have been married today. My feelings remain the same now as they used to be for her.”

The original cast of TOWIE are set to reunite later this year, which Kirk and Lauren’s cast-mates Mark Wright and Lauren Goodger have revealed plans to appear on.

But, Kirk has previously revealed he doesn’t intend to return to the show that made him famous.

He said: “I realise working up a ladder clearing drains and jet-washing driveways isn’t as glamorous as being on the telly.

“But I wouldn’t swap things for the world. I am so glad. I am away from that life now. When I was on TOWIE I was known everywhere I went.

“I used to buy Ferarris, expensive watches and designer jeans — now I’m happy with a £20 pair from Topman.

“There is so much bulls**t going on when you live your life in the public eye. It can be toxic and you get surrounded by people who are fake and just hangers-on.

“And it can be a very brutal environment. Now I get up, go to work, keep my head down and earn a living with a bigger smile on my face.”

Two TOWIE stars who are still very much in the limelight are Gemma Collins and Jame Argent, who have been dating on and off for eight years.

And, Kirk predicts the pair will be engaged soon as he said: “From what I’ve heard, her and Arg are still going strong. Maybe by the time we meet she’ll be engaged to him. It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest.”
