Yazmin Oukhellou has uncovered that she had a complete implosion in the wake of taking a two-piece snap for Instagram as she attempts to ‘live in the present’ following the lethal auto collision which killed her beau.
TOWIE star Yazmin, 28, streamed to Marrakech following the burial service of Jake McLean on August 16 for a ‘recuperating occasion’ and has posted a few photographs of her time away.
However, in her most recent post, wearing a matching print two-piece and conceal, she uncovered that in spite of looking completely flawless she actually battles with the shock of the mishap in the background.
‘Just after I took this photo I had a meltdown and that’s okay but I’m learning to pick myself up and trying to live in and appreciate the present as much as possible’
She wrote: ‘Just a little reminder: You can be positive, happy, grateful, and still have awful, or off days. Just keep going. Keep practicing mindfulness and good thoughts. But also acknowledge how you’re truly feeling.
Essex businessman Jake McLean, 33, was killed instantly on July 3 when his blue Mercedes E class saloon plunged down from a windy, mountainous road down a ravine in Bodrum, Turkey.

His on-off lover Yazmin was left with serious injuries after she had to break her own arm to escape the wreckage while Jake was in the driving seat unconscious.
The crash took place at around 4.30am and investigators have established that the car hurtled around 70 feet over a left turn bend and landed in a ravine almost 30 feet below.
Jake was pronounced dead at the scene while Yazmin was rushed to hospital, where she underwent treatment for her injured arm.
After the crash, she clambered through thick, thorny bushes to stop a passing motorist for help.
She has told of how she is still coping with post traumatic stress following her return to the UK.
It has been claimed that the couple had a blazing row at a nightclub shortly before the car crash, something which Jake’s mum Anita Walsh told Turkish authorities she believed could have played a role in her son’s death.
This led to a bitter fallout between Yazmin and Anita who banned the reality star from Jake’s funeral in Essex last month.
Jake’s secret girlfriend Chloe Hennessey, 27, a beauty therapist, was invited to the funeral and posted a series of touching photos on Instagram of the couple, paying tribute to the man she will
Writing on Instagram post sharing a photo of her and Jake, Chloe said: ‘What a beautiful day for a beautiful soul. So happy everyone important that should’ve been there showed up.
On the day of Jake’s funeral, Yazmin broke her social media silence, writing: ‘I have been taking some time away from social media to fully focus on my mental and physical recovery.
‘I needed this time away to work on healing and processing everything as best I can.
‘This has taught me that life is so short and we must cherish our loved ones as much as possible.
‘I am so grateful for our memories and the special time that Jake and I shared. I’ve not stopped thinking about him and I’ll miss him always. He will forever hold a special place in my heart.’
