Kirk, 23, will follow in the footsteps of rugby star Gavin Henson by appearing on the show which sees a group of women vying to become the male lead’s girlfriend.

The millionaire playboy will wave goodbye to his TOWIE cast members to date a host of attractive women and potentially find a wife.

He follows in the footsteps of two other prominent members of the show’s cast to up sticks and move on.

Amy Childs left before the start of the last series, opting to appear in her own reality show called All About Amy.

While another of the show’s main characters, Mark Wright, is currently starring in I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here.

‘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.’
