Mark Wright may have won the nation’s heart with his appearance in I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, but it appears as though he hasn’t managed to win over former The Only Way Is Essex cast member Kirk Norcross.

Accusing Mark of acting fake in the I’m A Celeb… jungle, Kirk, also claimed that Mark felt threatened by him when they worked on the ITV2 reality show together.

Speaking in an interview with Star magazine, the reality star revealed: “Everyone is saying, ‘Ah, Mark, he’s really nice!’ So he must have acted the whole way through (I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here).

“I’ve never seen eye-to-eye with Mark because he’s so competitive and sees me as a challenge. Mark’s a good-looking guy but he’s got a fat arse! Mark’s an alpha male – he wants to shag everything and p*** up every wall.”

Kirk, who split up with fellow TOWIE star Lauren Pope during the show, added that he can’t understand why Lauren Goodger is still in the show.

He said: “Her whole thing was based around Mark. I think it was her mistake – nothing against her – to focus around just one storyline.”

Explaining his decision to quit the show, Kirk, whose family owns The Sugar Hut, revealed: “I reached my peak. I also felt I was becoming known as the fiery guy who would flare up, which isn’t me.

“It’s just weird how it got, with so many characters fighting for storylines. TOWIE is a great show, but I couldn’t see what storyline I was going to end up with – I think I’ve quit while I was ahead.”
