Yazmin Oukhellou has certainly been sticking her fingers in a lot of pies after taking a brief break from TOWIE last year.

The Brentford native quit Essex last year to move to Dubai and become a luxury real estate agent, but now she's revealed she's been training for something entirely different once more.

The reality star took to Instagram to share a photo of herself looking glam as she pouts into a mirror and holds up a syringe, and captioned the post, "I’ve been studying with @glow_up_london & @glow_up_london_academy for the last 6 months to become a fully qualified skin specialist and aesthetics practitioner for my new business @showoffskin 💉.

"I’ve been working very closely with Roxanne and the Glow Up London team to make my dreams of becoming a teaching assistant a reality! I am now qualified in Luxury Facials, Skin Boosters, Foundation Anti Wrinkle, Chemical Peels, Vitamin B12 Injections, Sonic Wand extractions, Dermaplaning, Microneedling, LED Light Therapy, Ice Globe Massage, Oxygen Infusion and I have plenty more courses on the way!🧖🏽‍♀️."

She continued, "The professionalism and quality of training at this academy is honestly unmatched and I’ve walked away feeling so confident in all of my new skills! The girls at glow up London are so welcoming and always on hand to help you create a training day that will really help you develop as a skin specialist!✨.

"I will be taking bookings in the near future and can’t wait to see you all and help you on your journeys of becoming skincare specialists to. 🧖🏼‍♀️"

You can't deny the girl's got ambition, but we can't keep up.

It was just twelve short months ago that Yaz teased her new career as an estate agent after giving up reality TV.

"I wanted to see if you lot can guess what you think it is that I'm doing out here. I'm wondering if anyone can guess...," she said on Instagram.

She went on to add, "It's been a bit nerve wrecking for me to be honest.

"It's a big jump but so far I'm loving it and I'm loving office wear."

And after lots of her fans guessed her new job, the reality star revealed she was training to be a real estate broker in Dubai.

"I've got to get my license so I'll be studying for that for the next few weeks but I've seen some amazing properties.

"I was mind blown by some of the properties I'm going to be selling," she admitted.

Yaz's new career move comes shortly after she split from Dubai boyfriend and Lauren Goodger's ex Jake McLean. The couple were first reported to be dating in May of last year, with a source telling The Sun, "Yazmin and Jake rekindled their relationship when they were both single again. They got on really well a few years back but obviously things didn’t work out and they both moved on.

"When Yazmin split with James, Jake got back in touch and they started talking again. From the outside it’s clear Yazmin and Jake are both smitten but they are taking it slowly."

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.

However, by January 2022 Yaz had deleted all traces of Jake off her Instagram after it was rumoured he'd spent the night with Love Island star Ellie Jones.

Later that month Yaz confirmed she was single, writing on Instagram, "I just wanted to speak on here because there’s so many stories coming out about me and my personal life, and I’ve kind of just not been addressing it thinking it would just die down.

"But I’ve been getting loads of messages so I just want to say don’t necessarily believe everything you read.

"I am on my own at the moment," she continued. "I’m just trying to deal with things the best I can, but in regards to the situation with the things that have happened, I don’t really know the full extent or whatever has gone on."
