Kirk Nocross has quit 'The Only Way Is Essex' to become 'The Bachelor'.
The 23-year-old hunk - who has dated co-stars Amy Childs and Lauren Pope in the past - is "jumping at the chance" to leave the ITV2 reality show, and is keen to follow in the footsteps of rugby ace Gavin Henson and find "the one" on the Channel 5 show.
An insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Kirk has been approached to join 'The Bachelor' on Channel 5. He's jumping at the chance to leave 'TOWIE' and do something more dynamic. He has an eye for the ladies and has been saying for a while it's time to find a nice girl and settle down.
"Kirk's been really successful with regard to money and business ventures, but has yet to find the perfect lady. After seeing how much fun Gavin had on the last series of 'The Bachelor', Kirk's well up for it."
The nightclub owner isn't the only 'TOWIE' star set to ditch the show for a Channel 5 programme, as Lauren Goodger and Sam Faiers have also been offered lucrative deals to appear in the upcoming series of 'Celebrity Big Brother'.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "Lauren Goodger and Sam Faiers are both being offered big sums to appear in 'Celebrity Big Brother'. Kirk's the only one to make a decision."
However, Kirk's appointment on 'The Bachelor' won't sit well with former 'Geordie Shore' hunk Greg Lake, as he recently admitted he was hoping to find "Miss Right" on the dating show.
He exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I'd absolutely love to do 'The Bachelor'. I think it came across on the show that I like to wine and dine women, and rather than going out and banging loads of different birds.
"I think I'd make a good Bachelor. I'm definitely looking for Miss Right and this could be the ideal way to find her. There are lots of offers on the table, so I'm just figuring out what's right for me."
