On Sunday the 21st of April 2013 Amy Childs and boyfriend David Peters ran the Virgin London Marathon after months and months of training. I have added 40 photos from the event to the gallery go over and check them out.
Kirk Norcross is busy promoting his autobiography, which means reveal lots of personal details while sitting on chat show sofas.
Personal details like the fact that he’s still in love with his ex Amy Childs.
“I will still love Amy until the day I die – she is literally like the girl version of me. And when it didn’t work out, it broke my heart really… and it wasn’t her fault, it was both of our fault,” Kirk has said on This Morning today.
“Do you ever think it is something that you can rekindle,” asked host Holly Willlougby.
“I’d like to. Fingers crossed. I don’t speak to her about it, but I speak to her now and then so we’re still in contact,” Kirk replied.
We can’t wait to see how Amy is going to rect to this!

Amy Childs has revealed that she will be bringing lip gloss and jelly babies along with her as she runs the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday (April 21).
The former The Only Way Is Essex star is packing the vital supplies so that she will be “looking glamorous” for the paparazzi at the finish line – though she joked she might not make it there if she gets lost along the way.
Speaking to Digital Spy and others at a marathon press conference yesterday (April 17), Childs said: “I’m going to tell you a big secret. I’ve got a little pouch and I’m gonna have my jelly babies in, I’m gonna have my lip gloss and I’m going to have my mobile phone in case I get lost.
“The [last] mile I’m going to do my lip gloss and then on the finish line I’ll be looking glamorous, smile for the paps and then, done.”
Childs, who admitted that she “couldn’t even run properly” when she started training in December, insisted that she has put in the effort and is determined to complete the course for her charity, The British Heart Foundation.
“I’ve been up at 5.30 in the morning, I’ve done half a marathon,” she explained. “Yeah, I dunno what I’ve got myself in for, but I’m doing it for a great charity.
“I want to raise as much money as I can and enjoy the day. If it took me 10 hours to do it and I’ve raised loads of money, I’ll be happy.”
Childs and other celebrity runners including Holby City actress Amanda Mealing and former Olympic sprinter Iwan Thomas revealed yesterday how they intend to honour the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings at this weekend’s race.
She has been pounding the streets and training for months, completed the Richmond Half Marathon in a highly respectable 2 hours 20 minutes two weeks ago and now, Amy’s biggest challenge to date, running her first London Marathon is just 10 days away!
Making up part of the British Heart Foundation’s Heart Runners team, Amy has a very special reason for running for this charity as she explains;
‘The British Heart Foundation is really close to my heart as my cousin had to have open heart surgery when she was born, so I have seen first-hand the fantastic work they help to fund. My cousin is 9 now and is really healthy. The marathon this year will also be the first anniversary of my Nan’s dress. I am absolutely honoured to be raising money for them.’

Reality TV star Amy Childs met fans who had queued for hours when she signed autographs at Drake Circus in Plymouth today – and was also faced with tough questions.
Among those at the event was city man Matt Warne, who quizzed The Only Way Is Essex star for her thoughts on North Korea’s threats to the west.
The 22-year-old former star of TOWIE – making a personal appearance at Drake Circus’ Bank store – said she had no idea what Matt was talking about.
Matt, 20, queued with pals to meet the glamorous star.
He said: “I’m basically here to ask her what her tips are for the Grand National.
“I’m also going to ask her if she feels threatened by Kim Jong Un and the nuclear threat.
“I’m not expecting a very interesting answer to be honest. But if she blows my mind I’ll propose to her there and then.”
Plymstock lad Matt, wearing a t-shirt emblazoned with a scantily clad picture of Amy, added: “We’re all TOWIE fans and watched the first few series’ but it’s gone downhill since Amy left.”
After putting his questions to the Essex girl, Matt said: “She didn’t have a clue, literally not a clue.
“When I asked for her tips, she said ‘I dunno, what’s your tip?’
“Then when I asked ‘do you feel threatened by Kim Jong Un?’ she didn’t have a clue. She looked at her bouncer like ‘what’s he talking about?’”
Scores of reality TV fans queued since 5am to catch a glimpse of the TV personality turned designer and businesswoman.
Flanked by around a dozen security guards, gorgeous Amy signed autographs and posed for photos with hundreds of adoring fans.
She was in the city to launch her new range of dresses – but didn’t wait long to soak up the sites.
She arrived in Plymouth on Friday night then dashed back to Essex from Drake Circus on Saturday afternoon.
Superfans Caitlin Melville, 16, and her mum Tam, 44, from Paignton, met Amy for the fifth time.
Tam explained: “It was worth queuing for. We’ve got a house in Essex as well so we go to her shop all time.
“She knows us by now and she recognised us straight away.
“We’re big fans of The Only Way is Essex.
“She told us her boutique is missing us and asked when we were heading back so that she can make sure she’s there.”
Caitlin added: “We’re like BFFs (Best Friends Forever), she follows me on Twitter too.”
Super glamorous Charlene Rose, Theresa Penfold and Jodie Cooper got up at 7am to start getting ready to meet Amy.
Theresa said: “It was really nice to see her. I heard about her appearance when I read it in The Herald while I was at my mother-in-laws for a cuppa.
“I like watching TOWIE to see what they all wearing. They are all so glamorous, it inspires you to get up and make a bit of an effort.”
Charlene added: “She’s so nice isn’t she? We just asked her how long she’s in Plymouth for and when she got here.
“It was definitely worth queuing for.”
Greg Lumley, central director of Drake Circus, said: “We’ve had a great reaction from the public. We’ve had people queuing from 5am and so it’s been exceptional.
“We’re really pleased to see Bank open and Amy come down to support it.
“It’s great to see a celebrity like Amy come to Plymouth. Anything that helps put Plymouth on the map can only be a good thing.
“We hope that she is one of a few more to visit us in the near future.”
Following the personal appearence, Amy told The Herald: “I came down here last night but I’ve got to head back to my business in Essex today.
“I will be coming back to take time to see more of the city though, but at the moment it’s all go.”
Fans had queued from 5am for a chance to meet the celebrity fashion designer.
Amy Childs rose to fame after appearing in the first two series of the ITV2 series The Only Way Is Essex and came in fourth place in Celebrity Big Brother 8 in 2011.
