Yazmin ended her romance with Jake in January after discovering he had been unfaithful to former Love Island contestant Ellie Jones.

It’s unknown when the couple reconciled and why they were in Turkey, with Yazmin last sharing a photo of himself in London on Tuesday.

This year, Yazmin was set to return to TOWIE after filming with the cast in the Dominican Republic.

She had shared photos in June with co-star Harry Derbidge, 28, from the Caribbean.

According to her Instagram, Yazmin had finished filming for TOWIE in the Dominican Republic and went on vacation to Ibiza, where she posed in her bikini on O Beach.

MailOnline revealed in 2021 that Yazmin and James had split for good after a five-year on-off romance.

James and Yazmin had moved to Dubai together during the Covid-19 pandemic, but their relationship came to an end after a series of explosive fights.

The Essex couple had had a tumultuous relationship, breaking up and reconciling a number of times after dating for the first time in 2017.

In April of this year, Yazmin was photographed leaving James’s house after sources told MailOnline that the pair had grown “closer.”

James posed in Yazmin’s kitchen wearing nothing but a pair of boxers – weeks after his split from Love Island’s Megan Barton-Hanson.

Jake was sentenced to three and a half years in prison in 2008 after breaking into a mother’s home and overpowering her before a masked mob stormed into the family home.

He reportedly entered the property by posing as a real estate agent. Jake was 18 at the time.

In 2013, Lauren, who met her former lover via Twitter, admitted that she was aware of Jake’s criminal convictions but was willing to monitor his misdeeds.

She said, “Jake told me about his past. I could see how much he regretted his actions. I try to take people as I find them.’
