Kirk Norcross admits while it's a ''relief'' to have quit 'The Only Way Is Essex', he will always be grateful to the ITV2 reality show for helping him achieve fame
Kirk Norcross admits it's a "relief" to have quit 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The nightclub owner - who has quit the ITV2 reality show after being a central character throughout the first three series - explained while he is grateful to 'TOWIE' for helping him achieve fame, he is pleased to no longer be a part of the programme as he doesn't want to be typecast.
He said: "I want 2012 to be 'TOWIE'-free. I was successful before the show so I'm not worried. If anything, it will be a relief. I got fed up with it. I peaked. I'm thankful for the show because it put me out there but I don't want to be known for it.
"I made a lot of friends on the show and had a great time doing it."
The 23-year-old hunk is rumoured to have quit 'TOWIE' to take part in Channel 5 dating show 'The Bachelor' - which was previously fronted by rugby ace Gavin Henson - and he thinks it would be the perfect way to find a girl to settle down with.
Kirk added in an interview with the Daily Star newspaper: "I would love to be considered for it because it's what I'm doing in real life - looking for the right girl to settle down with.
"I want to settle down young. I'm ready now. I want a family. The lifestyle we lead, if you don't settle down young you never will."
