After spending just 9 days on the show, 20-year-old Sherif Lanre has been AXED from this year’s Love Island Villa!
The semi-pro rugby player/ Chef ‘mutually agreed’ to leave the hit ITV2 after discussions with the producers over breaking ‘Villa rules’.
In a statement after his departure, Sherif explained, ‘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.’
He added, ‘I regret that I didn’t conduct myself in the right way and, as a 20-year-old guy, it’s something 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.’
During Sherif’s short stint in the Majorcan villa, he struck up a blossoming romance with his coupling, Pharmacist Anna after retaining a rooftop smooch during this weekend’s episode.
It has not yet been released as to what ‘villa rules’ the semi-pro rugby player broke but it will certainly come as a surprise to the Love Islanders of whom he became very close to over the past week.
