TOWIE fans were heartbroken to see Yazmin Oukhellou and her mum break down in tears tonight before she sensationally quit the show.
The pair sobbed during an emotional heart to heart, and the 24-year-old revealed that she is leaving Essex to focus on her mental health.

Viewers were in bits over the emotive scenes, as one fan said: “Never thought I’d get emotionally attached to #towie but I’ve just balled my eyes out watching yaz breakdown WHY ARE NONE OF THE GIRLS BEING THERE FOR HER so shit to watch.”
Another person admitted: “that was really hard to watch with Yaz”
And a third person added: “feel awful for yaz, hope she moves on and feels better #towie”
Earlier in the episode, Yaz was in floods of tears with her boyfriend James ‘Lockie’ Lock, and later she told her mum Lisa: “I feel like I’m losing my friends now, I’m shutting myself off in this flat. I don’t feel my normal happy self.

“I hate feeling like this. I feel like everyone hates me.”
Her emotional mum replied: “I think we need to go away. There are a few therapists there, I think you have got a few issues you need to deal with, it is worrying me, the outbursts that you’re doing.
“We’ve got to think about what’s triggering them, you’re not a bad person. We’re going to go away and get this all fixed, and get this back to how I know you.”
Later, the Towie star called her mum and said she was ready to “go away” and take a break from the show.
Last week Yaz shared a picture at The Holistic Boot Camp and said she was focusing on her mental health.
Dressed in sportswear and staring into the distance, she wrote: “Thank you all so much for the lovely messages and support.
“Taking time out has really given me the chance to reflect on myself & life.”
She then tagged the Marbella-based retreat.

Last week, a source revealed that Yazmin has been severely affected by vicious arguments that she has had with various Towie cast members.
They told the MailOnline: “She’s been treated for anxiety there but it’s not been revealed that she’s also being treated for severe depression that has been debilitating to the point where she hasn’t wanted to get out of bed.”
The star’s boyfriend and co-star, James ‘Lockie’ Lock, is said to be supporting her behind the scenes.
