LAUREN Goodger has broken her silence over her ex Jake McLean's tragic death.

His on-off girlfriend Yazmin Oukhellou, 28, was left injured in the smash and suffered "extremely serious” damage to her arm.

Writing on Instagram this afternoon Lauren, 35, said: "R.I.P Jake, I have no words right now."

Posting in red capitals she added: "My thoughts are with your family & friends."

She followed the message with broken-heart and angel emojis.

Jake dated Lauren on-and-off for four years before their relationship ended for good in 2016.

Pictures have now emerged of the car Jake and Yaz were travelling in flipped on its roof after it careered off a cliff.

Emergency workers are shown at the scene of the scene close to the vehicle, which appears to have landed on an incline.

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

The pair had been on holiday in Turkey where Jake is understood to have been involved in a business deal.

Other Towie co-stars have shared their devastation for Yazmin and Jake's family and friends.

Amy Childs, 32, posted a picture of the pair on a beach with three praying emojis and a love heart.

Amber Turner, 28, shared an image on her Instagram story, saying: "Thinking of you. Can everyone keep Yaz in their prayers tonight".

Her best friend on the show, Junaid Ahmed, 27, wrote: "Love you …my beautiful girl".

Yazmin left Essex for Dubai to live with Jake around a year after they got together.

She moved on with him around a month after her split from fellow Towie star James Lock.

The couple confirmed their relationship in December last year with loved-up snaps from a romantic night out in Dubai.

However, in January she revealed they had split in an Instagram post and was recently rumoured to have reconciled with James after they enjoyed a lunch date in Essex.

The reality star was set to make a return to Towie later this year and jetted to the Dominican Republic for filming last month.

A show source explained: “We’re crossing our fingers and praying she makes a full recovery quickly.”

They added: “It’s beyond shocking, just devastating for everyone connected to the show.

“Jake and Yaz are both very well known in our circles, and while he wasn’t a saint this is just unbelievably tragic. Everyone is stunned.”
