Emotional Lauren Goodger and James Argent lead mourners at Jake McLeans funeral

Lauren Goodger and James Argent were spotted among many grieving stars at the funeral of Jake McLean on Tuesday.

Jake tragically died at the age of 33 after he lost control of his Mercedes car which went off of a cliff in Bodrum, Turkey.

TOWIE star Yazmin Oukhellou was in the vehicle with him at the time of his death and was taken to hospital and underwent surgery for her own injuries.

A farewell ceremony was held for Jake and St Thomas of Canterbury church in Essex to mark the entrepreneurs life.

In attendance was ex-girlfriend Lauren who was dressed in an all white outfit as she attempted to hide her sobs as she said goodbye to Jake who she had previously dated for four years.

James 'Arg' Argent also turned up with a fellow ITV co-star Liam Gatsby and hid his emotion behind a pair of dark sunglasses.

Masses of floral tributes were placed around the church as the rain fell on what proved to be a sad day for all.

Mourners surrounded the entrance as Jakes body was carried into the chapel with a huge Lamborghini badge situated on top of the casket.

It is unknown if Jake's on/off girlfriend Yazmin Oukhellou attended his funeral despite her alleged fall-out with his family.

Jakes loved ones claimed that the couple had been arguing at the time of the crash – which is an allegation that Yazmin strongly denies.

In a desperate bid to free herself from the wreckage, Yazmin confessed to snapping her own arm out of "pure adrenaline and panic" which had become jammed in the car.

Recalling the moment to The Sun, she said: "It was lay there and bleed to death, or snap my own arm to try to save us

"I didn't want to admit it to myself that he could be dead.

"So I thought, 'Right, I can either lay still and bleed to death, or snap my own arm to try to save us — I had no choice.'"

Meanwhile, it's been a tragic time for Jake's ex Lauren who arrived to pay her respects with swollen black eye.

It was alleged that Lauren was attacked on the day of her baby Lorena's funeral who was tragically born still.
