TOWIE’s Yaz confirms ex James Lock is ‘seeing’ Megan Barton Hanson and insists ‘I’m happy for him’

TOWIE star James 'Lockie' Lock and Love Island's Megan Barton-Hanson set tongues wagging last week when they were spotted kissing during a night out in London.

And when we caught-up with former TOWIE star and Lockie's ex-girlfriend Yazmin Oukhellou, she was very diplomatic and courteous when talking about his ex's new romance, even telling us Megan and Lockie are "seeing each other."

"I’m happy for him," Yaz insisted to new!.

"I want him to have his happiness and meet someone. I want it for myself as well."

Yaz also addressed rumours Megan, who is most famous for appearing on series four of Love Island and her romances with Eyal Booker and Wes Nelson, could be joining the TOWIE cast – and she doesn't seem to adverse to the idea.

"If he’s seeing her and she’s part of his life, you’ve got to be real on the show," she said.

"It will be awkward, but we’ve been broken up for so long now. I’ll always love him – it would be nice if we could be mates."

Yaz and Lockie split this January after an on and off relationship spanning years.

In turn, the brunette beauty departed the Essex reality show where she found her fame and documented the highs and lows of her turbulent relationship as she pursued a real estate career in Dubai.

When asked if it was a difficult decision to quit the series, she told us: "Yes, we were in a pandemic and it was my main source of income. I asked my mum, 'Am I going to be up S**t Street if I do this?'

"She just said 'Mental health is more important'. I needed a break from Essex and to not be around James. Any break-up is hard, but with the nature of the job we do, if you’re around your ex 24/7, it’s really easy to end up going back."

Yaz made a brief cameo on the current series of TOWIE after James' fling with her pal Chloe Brockett was revealed.

But it seems Yaz is well and truly over her ex as she tells us "I couldn’t give a s**t," when talking about their romance.

"I had no intention of having beef with her or him," she said.

"I just wanted to come back and show everyone that I’m over it and in such a good place now that I’m not in that situation. I don’t want to get into toxic scenes. If it makes James happy, if it makes Chloe happy, good for all of them!"

Good on you, Yaz!
