Yaz reportedly quit her gig on Ex On The Beach just days into filming because she thrown off guard by the arrival of her ex-boyfriend James. 

A source told The Sun: ‘Yaz knew filming Celeb Ex On The Beach would be challenging as the whole purpose of the show is to create drama.

‘But within days of James arriving, she realised she couldn’t cope with being in the villa with him and decided to leave.

‘She was prepared to give up her time on the show for her own mental health. Having been through everything she has been through in the last year, Yaz has realised life is too short to be in situations where she is unhappy or feels uncomfortable.’
