Kirk Norcross quit 'The Only Way is Essex' following advice from 'Football Factory' star Danny Dyer, and the pair went for a "p**s up" to celebrate the news
Danny Dyer advised Kirk Norcross to quit 'The Only Way is Essex'.
The club promoter took the 'Run For Your Wife' actor's "advice" and handed in his notice on the ITV2 reality show, and the pair went out for a "celebratory p**s up" after the 24-year-old announced the news to producers.
Kirk tweeted Danny: "I took your advise winkle! Yeah ring me later! Get a bit of grub if u finish early x (sic)"
The 'Football Factory' star replied: "About f**king time brother. The worlds your oyster. I'll call ya later (sic)"
He then added: "F**k the grub. I feel a celebratory p**s up in the cards. (sic)"
Earlier this morning (21.03.13), Kirk tweeted: "Jst 2 let every 1 no I have walked away from #TOWIE and will not be returning, the show had changed 2 mch! I will let u no the details soon (sic)"
Kirk looks set to simply disappear from the programme without an explanation as he has reportedly "failed to communicate" with show bosses this week.
A 'TOWIE' spokesperson told Mirror.co.uk: "Kirk has failed to communicate with the production team since he filmed for St Patrick's Day and there are no further plans to film with him this series."
What's more, sources believe it is no coincidence Kirk has quit the show in the same week new hunks James and Daniel made their debuts in the series.
An insider added: "They were filming in the gym, which was Kirk's 'territory' on the show."
Kirk's shock departure comes after he quit 'TOWIE' following the third series in 2011 and went on to appear in Channel 5 reality show 'Celebrity Big Brother' in January 2012, on which he finished ninth.
He then returned to 'TOWIE' in September 2012 for series seven and has appeared in the current eighth series, which started in February this year.
A number of stars have quit the programme in recent weeks including Kirk's father Mick Norcross, who was furious with show bosses for using his Sugar Hut nightclub as a battleground for stars of the programme to argue with each other.
