How Did Jake McLean die? The Nasty Accident That Killed Him
Jake McLean rose to fame when he began dating The Only Way Is Essex star, Lauren Goodger, in 2012. The two were in an on-and-off relationship until 2016, when they officially called it off.
In 2019, he began dating Yazmin Oukhellou, also a TOWIE cast member, after breaking up with her then-boyfriend, James Lock.
