A source told MailOnline: ‘It’s a complete tragedy and a total loss of life.

‘Everyone is in shock and hoping Yazmin makes a full recovery.’

Pals close to Lauren told MailOnline the pregnant mother-of-one has been left ‘devastated’ by Jake’s untimely passing. 

Speaking to The Sun another source added: ‘Apparently Jake was driving when he lost control of the car and it went off a cliff.’

Yazmin and Jake have been dating on and off since May 2021, after the TOWIE star called quits on her long-term relationship with James Lock, 35. 

MailOnline has contacted TOWIE and Yazmin’s representatives for comment.

Yazmin ended her romance with Jake in January after discovering he had been unfaithful with former Love Island contestant Ellie Jones. 

It is unknown when the pair reconciled and the reason for them being in Turkey, with Yazmin last sharing a photo of herself in London on Tuesday. 

This year, Yazmin was set to make her return to TOWIE after filming with the cast in the Dominican Republic. 

She had shared photos alongside co-star Harry Derbidge, 28, from the Caribbean in June. 

According to her Instagram, Yazmin finished filming for TOWIE in the Dominican Republic, and headed on holiday to Ibiza, where she posed in her bikini at O Beach.

MailOnline revealed in 2021 that Yazmin and James had split for good following a five-year on-off romance.

James and Yazmin had relocated to Dubai together during the Covid-19 pandemic but their relationship hit the rocks following a series of explosive arguments.

The Essex couple had experienced a tempestuous relationship, splitting up and reconciling on a number of occasions after they first started dating in 2017.

In April this year, Yazmin was photographed leaving James’s home after sources told MailOnline the couple had ‘grown close’ again.

James posed in Yazmin’s kitchen wearing nothing but a pair of boxers – weeks after his split from Love Island’s Megan Barton-Hanson.

Jake was jailed for three-and-a-half years in 2008 after conning his way into a mother’s house, overpowering her before a masked gang ran in and raided the family home.

He reportedly tricked his way into the property pretending to be an estate agent.

Jake, who was 18 at the time, was part of a gang of six. The other five members ran into the home carrying imitation pistols and threatened to kill their victims if they screamed for help.

It is believed he only served half of his sentence and he’s been in prison since, sharing Instagram posts from 2018 wearing a leg tag.

Jake previously joked about getting buff in ‘The Ville’, understood to be a potential reference to Pentonville prison in London.

In 2013, Lauren, who met her former lover via Twitter, admitted she was aware of Jake’s criminal convictions but was willing to oversee his wrongdoings.

She said: ‘Jake told me about his past. I could see how much he regretted his actions. I try to take people as I find them.’
