One of the original cast members of the award-winning reality series The Only Way is Essex, Kirk is often portrayed as the good-looking rich kid, splashing out thousands on bottles of champagne and dating glamorous women like Amy Childs and Lauren Pope. But there's a lot more to Kirk, and the reality is that the first eighteen years of his life tell a very different story - one he is only now ready to reveal. A childhood marred by poverty, as Kirk moved between a hostel and a council house on a tough estate, left him suffering from panic attacks and crippling self-doubt. Reconciling with his dad, by now a millionaire, thrust him into a very different world - one with its own set of challenges.

Opening up for the first time about the two sides of his Essex life, Kirk also tells us about his rise to fame on TOWIE, his much-followed romances, and who his real friends are.
