The millionaire playboy is wav- ing goodbye to his Essex pals so he can date a host of fit girls and potentially find a wife. Kirk, 23, left, has spoken many times about wanting to settle down with “the one”.
And following in the footsteps of rugby hunk Gavin Henson, 29 – who finally chose Carianne Barrow, 24 as his girlfriend – is Kirk’s golden opportunity.
Our TV source revealed: “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.”
We bet he is. Gav, right, was filmed snogging girls all over the shop and having late night skinny- dipping dates.
Kirk is famous for owning notorious Essex night club Sugar Hut and dat-ing co-stars Lauren Pope, 28, and Amy Childs, 21, on the ITV2 show. Kirk, talking about his ex Amy, recently admitted: “I fancy her loads.
“I’d get back together as quick as that, if I could. I’d settle down with Amy no problem. Kids, marriage the lot. I’d be the happiest person ever.”
We’re not sure Amy feels the same though as she told us: “He’s lovely and we are good friends. We’ve got chemistry, but we argue a lot when we’re together. We’re better as friends.”
However, she thinks he’d be great as The Bachelor saying: “I think Kirk would be the perfect person to do it. Definitely.”
Could he also be set for 'Celebrity Big Brother'? “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.”
The TOWIE star, 23, announced he had quit once before.
Let’s hope this time he means it.
