Lauren Goodger has paid tribute to her ex-boyfriend Jake McLean after he died in a horror car crash in Turkey that has left Towie star Yazmin Oukhellou seriously injured in hospital.
According to reports, McLean, 33, was driving in Bodrum, Turkey, when he lost control of the car. Emergency crews rushed to the scene, but sadly he couldn’t be saved.
It’s understood that reality star Yazmin, 28, is being treated for her injuries.
After the news of his death was announced, Goodger shared a message via Instagram Stories adding the caption: ‘R.I.P Jake, I have no words right now.’
‘My thoughts are with your family and friends,’ she added.
McLean and Lauren began dating in 2012 and they were in a relationship until 2016.
A source told The Sun Online: ‘Apparently Jake was driving when he lost control of the car and it went off a cliff.’
‘It’s a complete tragedy and a total loss of life,’ an insider added to Mail Online.
‘Everyone is in shock and is hoping Yazmin makes a full recovery.’
Yazmin’s mother has also flown out to be by her bedside, MailOnline reports.
