TOWIE star Yazmin Oukhellou has revealed she quit MTV’s Ex On The Beach as she feared she would get back with ex-boyfriend James Lock.
It was previously reported that the pulled out just hours before confronting her former flame and speaking to her former co-star Bobby Norris, Yazmin, 27, has opened up to new! about why she decided against doing the programme.
“I just had real bad anxiety about it. I’ve never really suffered from it until this year. It was a good pay day – I could have done with the cash!” she said.
“But I just didn’t feel like it was healthy for me to be in a house with my ex-boyfriend who did break me as a person.”
Admitting she was worried about what would happen, she continued: “I do this thing where I always go back to my ex.
“I need to start thinking about why these relationships haven’t worked and not go back.
"Being in a house like that, it’s so intense we would have been each other’s comforts and ended up… [doing the deed.] Not for the right reasons but because it was just comfortable.”
Yazmin split from James, 34, in January after having a row on Christmas Day.
On why they called it quits, she explained to new!: “I wasn’t happy for a little while.
"At the point I was in my life, I was really ready to settle, whereas he was being the party boy. He liked to have me there but he also liked to live this single life and I’d had enough.”

James told OK! at the time: “We’ve broken up. We tried to make it work and we really thought it was going to be different this time but things don’t always work out as you’d expect.
“I have a lot of love for Yaz and a huge amount of respect for her but we’re just better apart.”
Yaz said: “James and I have split up amicably. I love James but we’re not good together.
“It couldn’t go on the way it was so I told James we should end things and he agreed.”
