TOWIE’s Yazmin Oukhellou in huge career change after killer crash and show exit

Former TOWIE star Yazmin Oukhellou has unveiled her shock new career after quitting the ITV show following the death of her boyfriend.

Now, Yazmin, who has been open about her struggles since the crash, has revealed she’s ditched her reality TV career for a brand new job.

Taking to her Instagram Story earlier this week she spilled the beans about her career U-turn, sharing that she is now an estate agent.

“First day at my new job,” Yazmin captioned the snap which showed off her glamorous look for her first day.

Posing for a mirror selfie, the stunner donned a maroon dress and wore her signature chocolate tresses in statement long locks.

In a second photo, Yazmin snapped a pic of her designer handbag and her laptop which read “The Global Real Estate Marketplace" on the screen.

It comes after Yazmin reportedly quit TOWIE and walked away from the hit show, almost six years after she first joined.

It’s been claimed she has not decided to return because she wants to go through and process the “trauma” of the past year.

A source told The Sun: "Yaz has decided to step away from the next series of TOWIE and focus on recovering from the trauma of what she has been through over the last year."

They further claimed: "She needed a break after everything to process what's happened, so she has decided to leave the show and will not be in the next series."

Yazmin first appeared on TOWIE back in 2017 and her relationship with co-star James Lock was widely documented throughout the series.

It has been reported that Yazmin was in an off again-on again relationship with Jake McLean since 2021.

His ex-girlfriend, fellow TOWIE star Lauren Goodger, paid her respects following his death in July last year.

She dated Jake for a few years from 2012 and wrote on Instagram: "RIP Jake. I have no words right now. My thoughts are with your family and friends.

MailOnline has revealed that moments after the crash took place Yazmin screamed: "Help me, help me! My friend is dead," as she tried to move to safety.

She then flagged down a passing car for help and the driver reportedly called emergency service.
