Not too long ago, fans of MTV's devious dating show watched as Kirk decided to leave Ex On The Beach and bid his time in the villa an emotional farewell.
He and Vicky had been reunited on the show, and after spending time with the Judge Geordie star again, Kirk confessed to Vicky he was in love with her. He was then left heartbroken when he saw Vicky kissing someone else, telling his co-star Jordan Davies he couldn't cope and had to leave.
Now, looking back on his exit, Vicky has exclusively told Reveal she thinks Kirk wasn't in love with her, he just mistook his feelings to be that strong.
Former TOWIE star Kirk had a bit of a rough ride during his time in the villa, thanks to the arrival of his ex-fiancée Cami Li. On Cami's arrival, the pair clashed majorly, before coming together to talk about their failed relationship.
While doing so, Kirk broke down in tears, telling his former flame he had never meant to hurt her. The Essex boy was then reminded of his failed engagement, yet again, when the Tablet of Terror devised a task for the villa. They had to plan the hen and stag parties Kirk and Cami never had.
Upset, Kirk stormed off and was later consoled by Vicky. Caught in the moment, he told her he was so happy she had joined him on the show, dropping the L-bomb before kissing her.
He was later left devastated, however, when he spotted Vicky kissing Stephen Bear (her now boyfriend) in the pool. Finding it all a little too much, Kirk decided to pack up and head back to Essex.
We caught up with Vicky as she launched her latest clothing collection for Honeyz.com and she told us, she doesn't think Kirk really did love her.
"Kirk is a lovely lad and we spent a nice couple months together," she said. "I do not have a bad word to say about him. But by the time I got out to Mexico he'd been through a lot!
"I think my arrival was just too much for him, but I don't think he loved me. He just needed a friend out there that he could count on. I think he mistook strong affection for love. It's easy to do in that pressurised environment."
Now the 27-year-old is happily loved up with Holly Willis and, not only are the pair now engaged, they are expecting their first baby together too.
Kirk revealed his baby joy on Twitter at the end of August, sharing a photo of his baby's scan and telling fans: "Everyone meet mine and Holli's little girl!!! Proudest moment of my life so far!"
Commenting on the reality star's exciting news, Vicky said she "couldn't be happier" for Kirk.
She added: "Kirk is a good lad and a very sensitive person. I think he'll make a brilliant and very hands on dad! And I wish him and his fiancée the best."
