Yazmin Oukhellou's TOWIE co-stars rally after she's seriously injured in fatal car crash

Stars from The Only Way is Essex have rallied in support of Yazmin Oukhellou after the reality TV star was seriously injured in a car crash that killed her ex Jake McClean.

Reports broke on Sunday afternoon that Jake, former boyfriend of another TOWIE star, Lauren Goodger, was dead after the crash, with sources claiming he'd been driving a car in the Bodrum area of Turkey when the vehicle went off a cliff. Emergency services were quickly on the scene but were unable to save the 33-year-old, with Yazmin rushed to hospital.

A source told The Sun Online: "Apparently Jake was driving when he lost control of the car and it went off a cliff."

Yazmin and Jake confirmed they were an item towards the end of last year, after her on/off relationship with TOWIE co-star James Lock came to an end. They are said to have dated for a number of four months before Yazmin, who moved over to Dubai to be with Jake, ended things earlier this year.

After the news of Yazmin and Jake's accident made headlines, several TOWIE cast members took to social media, wishing her a swift recovery. Amber Turner shared a picture of her with Yazmin on her Instagram. Below it she wrote: "Thinking of you. Can everyone keep Yaz in their prayers tonight. Another ITV star Courtney Green also spoke out on Yazmin's accident, posting a picture of them both with co-star Chloe Meadows and adding: "Wishing our Yaz a speedy recovery."

Chloe herself posted a group shot of her and Yazmin with Courtney and Amber, as well as fellow cast member Chloe Brockett and wrote: "Can't stop thinking of you my Angel. We love you."

Yazmin had been dropping some serious hints she's back on TOWIE for its new series, posting photos of herself in the Dominican Republic, where cast headed to film recently and posting a shot on her grid last week, which she captioned: "TOWIE Tuesdays."
