It looks as though former TOWIE star Yazmin Oukhellou could have a new man in her life just three months after she split from co-star James ‘Lockie’ Lock and packed up her life in Brentwood to retrain as an estate agent in Dubai.

Celebrating her 27th birthday earlier this week, Yaz took to her Instagram to show off an impressive haul of designer gifts and wrote, “I woke up like this 🥳.

“Feeling so grateful and blessed today best birthday feel truly spoilt. 🎉💗🎉.”

And fans weren’t about to let the hint slide with one writing, "It’s all about the designer. I like you have found happiness with your new boyfriend moved on quick but it is what it is."

"Anyone else wondering who the fella is?" asked another.

Jake's time on TOWIE was mainly characterised by his on / off relationship with Chloe Lewis and his alleged cheating on her. He finally (sort of) confessed that he'd done the dirty with Megan McKenna in a very emosh scene on a park bench. Ah, precious memories.

Yazmin’s friends and TOWIE co-stars also rushed to wish her many happy returns, with Nicole Bass saying, “Happy birthday beautiful, have an amazing day love you,” and Georgia Kousoulou writing, “Beautiful, happy birthday bub x”.

After reuniting last summer, Yaz and Lockie ran into trouble once again when they jetted off on a luxury holiday to Dubai (along with half the UK’s influencers) in the middle of the pandemic.

And after eye-witnesses reported huge screaming matches by the pool, Yaz was reportedly desperate to leave the UAE early and cut their trip short.

However, things didn’t quite turn out that way, and while Lockie returned to Essex to reunite with his best friend and “soul mate” Pete Wicks, Yazmin stayed on in the Middle East and back in February announced she was starting a new job as an estate agent for the city’s luxury homes.
