The Only Way Is Essex star was named as the first victim of tonight's double eviction after finishing bottom of an eight-way public vote.
He was put up alongside Denise Welch, Frankie Cocozza, the Shannon twins, Michael Madsen, Natalie Cassidy, Nicola McLean and Romeo Dunn in a surprise round of face-to-face nominations on Wednesday (January 18).
Upon hearing the news, Norcross enthusiastically leapt to his feet and hugged his close friend Cocozza.
Saying that he was looking forward to reuniting with his girlfriend, the nightclub promoter told the group: "Don't worry, don't worry... everyone just keep it going."
Norcross left the house to a largely positive reception and waved at audience members as he met host Brian Dowling.
Speaking to Dowling afterwards, Norcross said that he wasn't too sad to be leaving the competition.
"I was ready to go because it was an emotional rollercoaster and it was at the best height today - everyone was getting on with everyone - but there are far better people in [the house] that deserve [to win]," he noted.
Norcross denied that he ever wanted a long-term relationship with fellow housemate Georgia Salpa, even revealing that he has chosen to make up with his former girlfriend.
Discussing his behaviour around Salpa, he said: "That's what I do, I flirt. If you really want a girlfriend you play it a bit cooler, you're not just like, 'Kiss me!' I wanted to have a laugh."
He tipped either Gareth Thomas or Cocozza for victory, saying of the controversial X Factor singer: "He was there every step for me.
"I like people with individuality - he ain't going to change for no-one. He is Frankie Cocozza. So vote for Frankie, everyone!"
Cassidy became the fifth evictee later in the evening.
