TOWIE stars Yazmin (age 26) and James (age 33) arrived in the Emirates just before Christmas and have since been posting updates to fans on Instagram.

The two stayed at the luxurious JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai and enjoyed dinner at the hotel’s izakaya sushi restaurant.
The two later hit The Cheesecake Factory Mall of the Emirates, known for serving the best desserts in Dubai.
Earlier this day, Yasmin showed off her body in a gym wearing a Bahi Mi yellow leopard print bikini while preparing for the day by the pool, posing in the hotel bathroom.
They boarded the plane for the Christmas holidays flying British Airways First Class, and posted selfies of luxury seats, each of which could lean against a flat bed.
Like Ferne McCann, the reality star was criticized by some fans for the’rules of bending’ offshore jets while Britain was in a partially closed state.
Yasmin and James commented on the criticism, explaining that the trip was “for business.
The reality star told the fans: “Me and James should have come now to set everything up because I came to Dubai because I start doing very exciting things here in the new year. Keep telling me “
Ahead of the trip, James wrote on Instagram that fans can look forward to the big news coming out next year: “So we left Dubai and have an amazing opportunity! Try this space 2021! “
He added: “We are here for business, for business. Obviously we will make the most of it while here. But we are here for business purposes.”
Shortly after posting the clip, Yasmin shared a photo of himself taking a break on a sun lounger and later taking a tequila shot.
According to UK guidelines, Tier 4 allows travel abroad only for business purposes, but pleasure travel is currently prohibited.
The duo reunited this summer in Mallorca just a year after they originally broke up. It’s now more loved than ever, and recently moved together in Sex.
