Speaking exclusively to OK! from Dubai, James said: “We’ve broken up. We tried to make it work and we really thought it was going to be different this time but things don’t always work out as you’d expect.
“I have a lot of love for Yaz and a huge amount of respect for her but we’re just better apart.”
Yaz, also speaking exclusively to us from Dubai, said: “James and I have split up amicably. I love James but we’re not good together.
“It couldn’t go on the way it was so I told James we should end things and he agreed.”
James and Yazmin confirmed they were back together last summer after splitting in 2019 after two years together.
Ahead of their trip to Dubai, James told OK! about their plans to move in together as their romance was blossoming.
Speaking on their plans, James said: “Yeah that’s the next step. At the minute I’ve been bouncing between the two places… between a few places. But I think I’m gonna move back in with her very soon, just see how things go."
Back in September, the loved-up pair sat down with New Magazine to talk about their plans for the future together.
In the interview, which was the first since reconciling, Yaz tells New; "I feel like the things that went wrong in the relationship before, we now know to put right this time. I look at that as a test run – and now this is the real run."
Lockie, 34, added, “I went and did my thing and she went and did hers. Whatever happened, happened. It's all in the past now."

The reality pair arrived in Dubai before Christmas and have been showing a united front to their hundreds of thousands of followers on Instagram ever since.
Defending their decision to fly out to the Emirate state during the pandemic, they said the trip was for "business."
Yaz told her fans, “Just so those of you know, me and James have come to Dubai because I am launching something very exciting here in the New Year, so I've had to come now to get everything set up and we will be keeping you posted."
The TOWIE stars, who have not posted a picture together on Instagram since January, have both separately showed off their time away to their loyal following.
Both Yaz and Lockie have shared pictures of themselves enjoying cocktails in their swimsuits.
