Sherif Lanre has revealed the real reason why he’s been chucked off Love Island as he sends a grovelling apology to his villa mates.
The 20-year-old chef has left the villa immediately after crisis talks with producers, in which it was “mutally agreed” he would quit the ITV2 show.
Now Sherif has issued an apology for his behaviour, revealing that “poor judgement” led to him breaking the rules.
Sherif said in a statement to Mirror Online: “In a case of poor judgement, I broke the villa rules and as a result agreed with the producers that it was best for me to leave the villa.
“I regret that I didn’t conduct myself in the right way and, as a 20 year old guy, it’s something I know I will take on board and learn from.
“I really enjoyed my time in the villa and look forward to catching up with everyone on the outside.”
A Love Island spokesman also told Mirror Online: “After breaking the villa rules Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa.”
As yet, Sherif nor the producers have revealed the exact rule that he broke.
It’s the first time this series a contestant has left the show after breaking the rules that govern conduct in the villa.
Last year’s Love Island saw Niall Aslam quit the villa just days into the programme after finding it hard to cope with the pressure.
He later told fans he had Asperger’s syndrome, which made it harder for him to relate to the other Islanders.
A TV source at the time told Mirror Online that the three main reasons for being kicked out of the villa are racism, fighting or aggressive sexual behaviour.
There is no suggestion Sherif has done any of these things.
