Yazmin Oukhellou has reportedly quit TOWIE as she makes the permanent move to Dubai to focus on her new career as an estate agent.

Yazmin revealed earlier this month that she was training to be a real estate broker after spending Christmas and New Year in the glittering real estate of Dubai.

And according to reports she's now seriously making a go of it, with sources claiming she’s saying goodbye to Essex for good.

Speaking to followers on Instagram from her Dubai home, Yazmin teased her new career as she dressed in smart office-wear, saying, “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.”

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.

She went on to say, “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.”

And now a TOWIE spokesperson confirmed the news, telling The Sun, “Yaz has decided to stay in Dubai to pursue a career in real estate so she won’t be starting this series of The Only Way is Essex.

“We support this decision and wish her well in this new venture. As with other cast, the door remains open should she return to Essex.”

Can we get a TOWIE/Selling Sunset spin off for Yaz, please?

TOWIE's Yazmin Oukhellou and James Lock open up about their reunion following bitter split

Despite making a new life for herself in the Middle East, earlier this month it was reported that Yazmin was ‘desperate’ to leave the UAE after a ‘huge row’ with on-off boyfriend James ‘Lockie’ Lock, who she’s subsequently no longer dating.

And while Yaz has decided stay, Lockie has since returned home and apologised for his ‘insensitive’ trip, saying, “I should have been more considerate to the people back home who are struggling.

“I know people are finding it hard, including my own family and people that I love. But I honestly haven’t meant to upset anyone and I’m not a bad person. I’ve tried to be as respectful as I can.”
