Yazmin Oukhellou has been spotted in public for the first time since a source close to the TOWIE star revealed she feared being banned from her boyfriend Jake McLean's funeral over tensions with his family.
The 28 year old reality star was seen heading to a salon appointment, with her injured arm held in a sling, just three weeks on from a terrifying car crash in Turkey that sadly claimed the life of her boyfriend, Jake.
Pictured in a simple black vest and trousers, the TOWIE star Yazmin was seen heading to a local salon in Essex with her mum, as she continues to try and “piece her life back together” after the devastating experience.
Yazmin was discharged from hospital earlier this month after being left severely injured in a horror crash which saw the vehicle she was travelling in plummet from a cliffside in Bodrum, Turkey.
The star was told she was “lucky to be alive” by doctors after the crash, but has been left with significant damage to her arm, which required the star to undergo surgery while still in Turkey.
As well as recovering from her physical injuries, Yazmin has also spoken candidly about her battle with psychological ones, as she revealed she still has “nightmares every single night since the accident” and has been sharing a bed with her mum in the hopes of curbing the painful dreams.
Yazmin spent around two weeks in hospital in Turkey but as soon as she was well enough to be discharged from hospital, Yaz made it her mission to return to the UK in order to be with her loved ones as she tried to come to terms with the loss of her boyfriend.
Jake, 33, tragically died in the crash when the Mercedes he had been driving overturned over a 30ft drop into a ditch.
In the minutes after the crash, Yazmin was able to pull herself from the wreckage, despite bleeding from her arm. She climbed through “thorny bushes” and up a steep bank in order to flag down another motorist to try and help.
She reportedly cried: "Help me, help me, my friend is dead."
A man then pulled over to help Yazmin and immediately called emergency services, who rushed to the scene.
Sadly, despite their best efforts, they were unable to save Jake’s life.
Yaz meanwhile was rushed to hospital, where she underwent major surgery in order to try and repair her damaged arm.
