It’s only been a matter of days since Yazmin Oukhellou made a shock return to TOWIE and came face-to-face with her ex-boyfriend James Lock for the first time since their bitter split following his fling with Chloe Brockett, but she’s sparked rumours she’s already quit the show once again.

The reality star originally quit the ITVBe show earlier this year to pursue a new career as a real estate broker after moving to Dubai but, after returning to the UK earlier this month, she left her co-stars gobsmacked while making a dramatic comeback during the most recent episode.

However, Yaz has sparked speculation she’s left TOWIE for the second time after jetting back out to Dubai.

The 27 year old travelled to the UAE hotspot yesterday and documented her arrival at the swanky Palazzo Versace hotel on her Instagram Story and she wrote, “I’m back @PalazzoVersaceDubai.”

But although she’s thousands of miles away from Essex, the Lockie and Brockett drama is seemingly still on her mind as she shared a cryptic post hinting at the situation.

The post on her Instagram Story read, “They don’t apologise about what they did to you. They only blame you for how you reacted.”

When Lockie insisted he didn’t want a “slanging match”, Yaz continued, “I haven’t said anything about you and your finest hours, have I? No, it’s none of my business. I’m not talking about it. People are asking me about it. I’m speaking to you about it.”

She told Closer, “I haven’t spoken to Yaz for a year. She’s blocked me so I don’t really know what she’d say or if she’d be angry.
