TOWIE’s James Lock has confirmed he’s officially split from his girlfriend Yazmin Oukhellou while the two are on holiday together in Dubai.

The couple first split in 2019 after Yazmin accused Lockie of cheating on her in Turkey but grew close again last summer when they holidayed together in Majorca.

It wasn’t long before they made things official again but have now called time once more after it was reported they were having “huge arguments” on their current holiday in the UAE and Yazmin was reportedly “desperate to leave Dubai.”

“We’ve broken up. We tried to make it work and we really thought it was going to be different this time but things don’t always work out as you’d expect,” Lockie told OK! magazine.

Mark and Sam's on/off relationship goes all the way back to when she was 16 and they met on MySpace (aw, those were the days). They briefly dated during their time on TOWIE but were never able to give things a proper go before he quit the show in 2011.

“I have a lot of love for Yaz and a huge amount of respect for her but we’re just better apart.”

Yazmin told the same publication, “James and I have split up amicably. I love James but we’re not good together.

“It couldn’t go on the way it was so I told James we should end things and he agreed.”

Speaking back in September about learning to trust Lockie again, Yaz said, “It's still early days and I know it sounds weird and obviously we broke up over something I didn't trust him on, but I trust him more now than I did before.

“I think that's because I've done a lot of self-healing. But I feel like I will never trust anyone fully 100 per cent and I don't think you ever should.”
