We were fed up of the rumours and the cryptic flirting - there was only one way to find out what was going on with Amy Childs and Kirk Norcross. Ask them.
So it was lucky we were at The Caudwell Children Diamond Butterfly Ball in London last night, which the former couple were both attending – separately of course.
As he walked into the posh charity event with his dad we asked Kirk, 24, to finally set the record straight about whether he and Amy were seeing each other.
Kirk seemed furious when Amy was spotted leaving a hotel room with Take Me Out contestant David Peters earlier this month, tweeting: ““Them pap picks have put me in a real good mood :-( thanks love !!!! Ur just like the rest of them!!! #OnWardsAndUpWardsFromNowOn.”
Wearing a Rolex worth £17,000 Kirk got to the event first and told us: “I just use twitter for how I think anyway. I tweet about all my exes.
“We’re just friends. That is all we are. I get on with her family and I always watch her brother sing, so we’re always at the same places watching her brother sing, but just mates.”
We weren’t satisfied. Is nothing ever going to happen?
“I wouldn’t mind to be honest, but there’s no point rushing things, especially in this industry,” he said. “If you rush anything it just doesn’t work out.”
Ok, more promising, so there could be more to come in the future? “Hopefully, fingers crossed,” he replied.
So was he planning on charming her when he got inside?
Charmingly, he told us: “Not yet, I need a beer first.
Next up for a grilling was Amy, 21, who definitely sounded keen if you ask us.
“Kirk is lovely and we get on really well,” she said. “We are really good friends, we’ve always been good friends, I’m not going to lie to you, he’s really good looking and we’ve got a lot of chemistry together, but at the minute I want to be single.”
Keen to play cupid, we told her what he’d said. Looking a bit shocked (or loved up, we couldn’t really tell) she replied: “You never know, is that what he said? Thanks for letting me know. You never know, Kirk’s lovely and we get on really well.
So, there you have it – from the horses’ mouths. No need to thank us.
