Kirk Norcross thinks Mark Wright "acted" on 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here!' to win votes.
The 23-year-old hunk hit out at his former 'The Only Way Is Essex' rival - who quit the ITV2 reality show to take part in the jungle-based competition - for faking it to reach the final of the series.
He said: "Everyone is saying, 'Ah, Mark, he's really nice!' So he must have acted the whole way through.
"He sees me as a challenge. I've got a club - Mark tried to get a club. I had a blue convertible BMW - Mark chose the same car. He's a good-looking guy but he's got a fat arse."
Kirk - who has since quit 'TOWIE' and is now rumoured to be taking part in the upcoming series of Channel 5's 'The Bachelor' - also admitted he is "gutted" former best pal Joey Essex, with whom he formed Team Jirk, hasn't stayed in touch with him since he left the show.
He added in an interview with Star magazine: "I'm a bit upset because Joey doesn't ring me anymore. I
thought he was like my brother, but we seem to have drifted apart since I left the show - I'm gutted about it.
"I think Joey will survive. I love him. You could put Joey in a room on his own and it would still be the best thing ever on TV to watch! I hope we stay friends. He's brilliant but he's easily led. You could be like, 'Joey, people don't wear clothes anymore', and he'd believe you and strip off."
