The insider added that Yazmin’s friends believe she will not get back with James again and that their relationship is now over for good.
Speaking to The Sun Online, James described his now former flame as his ‘achilles heel’ and said that they still love each other.
The reality star added that he hopes they can make things work one day and, while he said he didn’t cheat on Yazmin, James admitted he went to an afterparty he ‘shouldn’t have’.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Yazmin and James for further comment.

Insiders previously revealed to MailOnline: ‘James and Yazmin have signed new contracts to appear on TOWIE, and are due to start filming again next month.
‘Their split certainly isn’t amicable and looks set to make for some pretty explosive showdown scenes.’
James and Yazmin first sparked split speculation in July when they were spotted locked in an explosive row during a trip to Turkey.
It was claimed at the time that their romance was hanging in the balance after their furious row sprung from him disappearing while she slept during the trip.

A source revealed to MailOnline at the time: ‘James had a few drinks and disappeared for hours while they were supposed to be enjoying a holiday together…
‘Yazmin had no idea where he was… They had a huge argument the next day and still aren’t speaking. Things are very strained.’
In February, Yazmin and James became victims of producers’ biggest ever cast cull after insiders confirmed to MailOnline they were stepping back from the ITVBe show after a year of personal dramas.

James and Yazmin being downgraded to minor characters meant a total of 10 cast members from The Only Way Is Essex did not feature in the 24th season.
A source told MailOnline: ‘Lockie and Yaz’s turbulent relationship has been well documented and since taking a break at the end of last series they have been working hard on themselves and their relationship…
‘They mutually agree with producers that taking an extended break and a back seat is best for them and the show at this time but as two of the show’s most popular characters we’re sure they’ll be back onscreen soon.’
