Former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Kirk Norcross has returned to The Only Way is Essex.
The 24-year-old left the ITV2 show after its third series in November last year, but made a surprise return in last night’s show.
Kirk had previously said he wanted 2012 to be ‘TOWIE’ free but is thought to have returned after his solo TV career failed to take off.
In his first scenes back on the show Kirk was reunited with his father, nightclub owner Mick Norcross, and they seemed to be making up.
Mick said: “This is the longest we’ve never spoke for, do you realise that?”
Kirk replied: “Yeah, I know, and I hated every minute of it. The only reason I didn’t speak was because I didn’t want it to turn into an argument.”
Since Kirk left the show, Mick has continued to appear, with many scenes taking place at his Sugar Hut club.
