A source told OK! online: “James and Yaz have broken up but they're still staying in the same hotel, just in different suites now.

“They're being amicable with each other and will both be in Dubai for a little bit longer.

“Yaz has been working out there so has legitimate reasons to stay. James is gonna be there for a while longer before he returns back to the UK.

“He has a few businesses that he can run from there so no need for him to rush back.”

Shortly after announcing she and James had parted ways, brunette Yaz posted a stunning photo of herself soaking up the sunshine in a yellow bikini on her Instagram.

Alongside the sizzling selfie, Yaz shared a thought-provoking message with her 631,000 followers.

She wrote: “Sometimes our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed and rearranged to relocate us to the place we are meant to be.”

The Only Way Is Essex on-off couple jetted off to Dubai just before Christmas and were criticised as they posted snaps from their sun soaked trip.

But Yaz, who recently opened up on her Brazilian Bum Lift, insisted her and James’ trip was for business purposes.

The brunette beauty explained: “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.”

Shortly before their trip to Dubai, James discussed moving in with Yaz and gushed over their relationship.

He exclusively told OK! online: “As you can see on the show we’ve been getting on like a house on fire. We had that year apart I think we needed it. Both realised how much we meant for each other, got back and yeah we’re better than ever to be honest.

“Again, people always are have an opinion and everyone’s entitled to their own opinion but, only certain opinions matter to me and the main opinion is my mine and Yaz’s and we’re really happy.

“We’re not thinking about the past, we’re thinking about the future.”

And when asked if he has any future plans to move in with Yaz, James revealed: “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.”

The couple were later reported to have moved in together in November.

A source told The Sun Online at the time the pair were “loved up now more than ever”.
