I've only ever grown them outdoors, but (after doing a google search just now) I reckon it's not getting enough light, and the environment is too warm.

I was wondering about the heat Rosie the Mrs has the central heating on quite a lot, but wouldn't they all be yellowing and not just two of them? the room looks dark in the picture but it is quite light that was the only picture I had of it in situ.

With my limited knowledge of Yuccas, I'd say they've been overwatered. They don't like a lot.

Yes, a multipurpose potting compost isn't drained well enough. I would use something a lot grittier. In the States, we call it cactus mix, but I don't know what it would be called in the UK.
