Cami, a US fetish model, dated Kirk - who has also appeared on CBB - and the couple even became engaged in 2013 before their bitter split just six months later.
But the brunette star insists: "The public has me attached to my ex and I don't want that. I am my own person and I want them to know that this is who I am and not this person's ex.
"I don't want to be Cami who used to be with Kirk."
Although Kirk found fame on The Only Way Is Essex, Cami - real name Camila Figueras - can't help but make a dig at a rather saucy naked picture of her ex which was leaked online during the year she dated him.
"A leaked a picture online, that's how he became more famous, let's be honest!" she quipped. The model added: "I would be worried [if I was Kirk]! Once they get some drinks in me, I'll be like let me tell you this story!"
Given her career, Cami - who lives in Miami, Florida - is more than happy to strip off during her CBB stint. Despite the freezing January temperatures here in the UK, she has packed lots of bikinis...
She says: "I've brought a lot of teeny-weeny bikinis that I plan to be in about 99 per cent of the time. Those and my shoes - you've got to walk around in heels!
"I'll be like, 'I've arrived, look at me, look at these titties and this ass!' Yes, that's me. People are so conservative and, when they look at me, I'm like, "B*tch I work out to look good naked!'
"I don't care what they say. You were born naked so why not?"
