Here’s everything you need to know…

Yazmin attempted a music career

Yaz wrote as a weekly blog columnist for OK magazine in 2018.

She revealed that she was planning on breaking into the music scene but as with many TOWIE-turned-music stars, that often doesn’t go to plan.

In August 2018 Yaz wrote:

So as I said in my last blog, I’ve always been interested in music and have headed to the studio to record some songs. Well I can now confirm that I have returned and recorded, and I’ve almost finished my new song.

She’s said her favourite music genres are R’n’B and hip-hop.

Joey Essex and Jess Wright were two former TOWIE stars who released tracks that didn’t go down so well…

Yazmin Oukhellou is a CEO

The TOWIE star is CEO of The Wellness Retreat Marrakech.

In 2019 Yaz moved onto this joint venture with her boyfriend, James Lock, and the pair now run the wellness retreats together.

Prices start at £1500 per single person and £2500 for two.

Yaz is also CEO of So Events Global.

So Events say that they “host exclusive, invite-only events across the globe”.

Yazmin’s clothing line

Yaz’s Instagram is jam-packed full of her modelling tons of different looks.

And many of the outfits are from her JYY London x Yazmin Oukhellou clothing line.

She and other reality TV stars such as Chloe Ferry and Stephanie Davis have collections with JYY London. TOWIE’s Amber Turner and Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson also have cosmetic ranges with the brand.

How old is TOWIE’s Yaz?

Yaz was born on 3rd May 1994.

This makes her 25 years old and a Taurus in the astrology world.

Those born under this Zodiac Sign apparently have an eye for beauty but tend to be stubborn and self-indulgent.

Yazmin Oukhellou: Surgery

It’s no secret that Yazmin has popped to the doctors for a tweak or two.

This summer (2018) she posted on social media that she loves her recent breast augmentation surgery as her previous surgery had left scars.

She also had a nose job in August 2017.

Yazmin Oukhellou’s degree

Yaz went to Newcastle University and finished with a degree in business.

In 2016 she launched her own luxury swimwear brand, Seven Swimwear.

So, she’s not just a pretty face after all!

She’s a qualified makeup artist

A degree in business isn’t all that Yaz has got under her belt.

She’s also been to makeup school.

Her mug does look pretty flawless on TOWIE, to be fair.
