Jake McLean, 33, who dated Ms Goodger from 2012 to 2016, was driving a car when it veered off a cliff in Turkey.
Ms Oukhellou, 28, who rose to fame on the ITVBe show, was a passenger and was seriously injured in the accident, according to The Sun.
Locals said emergency crews rushed to the scene but were unable to save Mr McLean.
Ms Oukhellou, who had been dating Mr McLean sporadically since 2021, is in hospital in a serious condition.
TOWIE sources have shared their shock at the news.
One source told the MailOnline: "It's a complete tragedy and a total loss of life.
"Everyone is in shock and hoping Yazmin makes a full recovery."
Ms Goodger, who is due to give birth to her second child any day now, is said to be "devastated" by the accident.
Mr McLean and Ms Oukhellou had ended their relationship in January.
A source told The Sun "nobody is quite sure what they were doing out" in Turkey together.
"But whatever's gone on this is just heart-breaking," the source said.
"It sounds very, very serious — perhaps life-changing."
