Kirk had dated tattooed model Cami back in 2013 and the pair were set to wed, with the Essex boy popping the question quite quickly into their whirlwind romance.
Despite being engaged, the pair's relationship broke down with Cami and Kirk splitting bitterly five months later. Since their break up, the former flames hadn't seen or spoken to each other until their reunion on Ex On The Beach. And after coming face-to-face with Cami once again, Kirk has now slammed his ex for using him "to stay famous".
It's now been two years since Cami and Kirk initially split and still there is no love lost between the pair. While Cami was quick to brand Kirk a "little sh*t" on entering the Celebrity Big Brother house, he didn't shy away from telling the camera he "f****** hates" Cami while filming Ex On The Beach recently.
Cami surprised him as one of this year's celebrity exes on the new series of the show and Kirk has now said he believes she is using him to gain her own celebrity status.
Speaking to the Mail Online, he said: "I feel like she's using me to stay famous... I'm barely famous enough to keep myself famous, let alone two people! Why hate me that much if she wants to use me to claim who she is?... She's got where she is now, so fair play."
Cami, meanwhile, has insisted she decided to go on Ex On The Beach simply to get revenge on her former beau.
"I left everything in Miami for this douchebag," she revealed. "I knew in the back of my mind [Kirk] was going to be [on the show] and revenge is nothing but sweet. Two years of lies he said about me, he can go f*** himself."
As the pair prepare to make their debut on Ex On The Beach, MTV has teased fans with their explosive encounter. In a sneak peek, viewers watched Cami approach Kirk on her arrival, throwing her drink over his face.
Reports had surfaced a few months back suggesting their reunion saw Kirk axed from the show, after he lashed out and punched a wall. However, Kirk has now revealed he actually decided to walk.
"A task came up that I didn't want to do and it was very close to my heart," he added. "I lost my temper and I punched a wall. I didn't hurt anyone else, though. I broke my hand in three places and thought, 'I've got to go, this is not going to work out well for me!'"
Ex On The Beach returns to screens tonight and viewers will get to see Kirk and Cami reunite as the series progresses.
They aren't the only familiar faces that will be gracing our screens this series as Judge Geordie star Vicky Pattison, EOTB alumni Rogan O'Connor and Ibiza Weekender's Jordan Davies will all be emerging out of the sea this time round too.
