FORMER TOWIE star Kirk Norcross has completed a trek to Machu Picchu raising £15,000 for charity in the process.

The 25-year-old was part of a team of 19 who walked to the wonder of the world in Peru in aid of Sport Relief and ADHD Foundation.

After reaching the ancient Inca site based 7.970ft above sea level, Norcross said: "Completing the trek was one of the most gruelling and rewarding challenges I have ever undertaken in my life.

"So many of us suffered from terrible altitude sickness before even setting off on the climb and seven of our group had to come down from the mountain for medical treatment throughout the four days of the trek."
