The TOWIE couple, who have been together for four months, caused quite a stir amongst viewers at the weekend...
James Lock and girlfriend Yazmin Oukhellou have made quite an impact on The Only Way Is Essex.
The TOWIE lad introduced his new lady at the start of the current series of the ITVBe reality show, and the pair made things official just a few episodes in.
Despite experiencing quite a bit of drama with James’ ex girlfriend Danielle Armstrong, which has played out across social media, it seems as though their relationship has been going from strength to strength.
During the TOWIE Easter special that aired over the weekend, the loved-up couple announced that they are about to take the next step – yup, apparently the couple are planning on moving in together.
It’s fair to say that the rest of the Essex boys – including Lockie’s best friend Pete Wicks and Dan Edgar – were pretty taken back by the news, with each of them showing concern that the relationship might be moving too quickly.
James and Yaz have been dating for around four months now, but both have been fairly vocal about their future together.

In fact, in a recent interview with OK!, Yaz revealed: ‘We have spoken about our future. We know we’re not in it for the short term. I see us being together forever.’
As the recent episode aired, viewers took to social media to comment on their news. And it’s safe to say that many people were a little shocked.
Reactions on Twitter included: ‘What the hell is lockie doing? Him and yaz have only been together for a few months and they’re moving in?! Wtf😳 [sic]’, ‘As if lockie and Yaz are moving in together already 😂 #towie [sic]’ and ‘Looks like @JamesLock__ is trying 2 prove a point by moving in with Yaz so quick. Why rush? Especially when there are cracks already? #towie [sic]’.
Others, however, defended the decision, with one fan writing: ‘What’s everyone’s problem with lockie and yaz moving in together on #Towie. Everyone needs to mind their own business’.
