Lauren Goodger’s ex-boyfriend Jake McLean has reportedly been killed in a car crash in Turkey.

The incident is also said to have left TOWIE’s Yazmin Oukhellou, 28, with serious injuries in hospital.

McLean, 33, dated Goodger, 35, from 2012 to 2016, and was said to have been at the wheel in Bodrum, a port city in southwest Turkey, when he is understood to have lost control of the vehicle also carrying Oukhellou.

The car is said to have careered off a cliff or hill, according to sources.

One told MailOnline on Sunday (03.07.22): “It’s a complete tragedy and a total loss of life.

“Everyone is in shock and hoping Yazmin makes a full recovery.”

Another insider told The Sun: “Apparently Jake was driving when he lost control of the car and it went off a cliff.”

McLean and Oukhellou have been in an on-off relationship since May last year, after she broke off on her long-term relationship with fellow TOWIE cast member, 35-year-old James Lock.

Any more details of the crash are unclear at this stage, but Oukhellou’s followers have been filling her social media with messages saying they are thinking of and praying for her.

One said: “Praying for you at this sad time,” while a second fan added: “Hope you’re okay you can pull through this.”

Oukhellou ended her romance with McLean in January after she found out he had grown close to former ‘Love Island’ contestant Ellie Jones on a night out.

It is unknown when the pair got back together or the reason they were In Turkey.

Oukhellou had been set to make her TOWIE comeback after filming with the cast in the Dominican Republic.

She and Lock, who started dating in 2017, had relocated to Dubai together during the Covid pandemic but their relationship ended following a series of rows.

In April this year, she was photographed leaving Lock’s home after sources told MailOnline the couple had again “grown close”.
