Love Island Sherif Lanre's axing was over a 'silly mistake'

Sherif Lanre was kicked off Love Island over a ‘silly mistake’ that was ‘not a criminal matter’.

The 20-year-old agreed to leave the villa after breaking the rules, according to a show spokesperson.

In a statement he said he didn’t ‘conduct myself in the right way’.

A Love Island insider has since said Sherif made a ‘silly mistake’ and knew ‘immediately’ that he would have to leave.

They added that it was not a ‘criminal matter’ and would not be taken further.

The source told The Mirror: ‘Sherif made a silly mistake and was immediately summoned to the Beach Hut – it wasn’t a criminal matter and he was spoken to and agreed to leave.

‘Sherif knew he had to leave immediately after being called to the Beach Hut. No security were involved.’

A Love Island spokesperson announced the news in a statement, which read: ‘After breaking the villa rules Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa.’

Sherif added: ‘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.’

It has not been said which rule he has broken, but fans are speculating that he was removed from the villa after he was spotted using a mobile phone, which is against the show’s rules.

Sherif will appear in scenes for part of tonight’s episode. He had been coupled up with fellow islander Anna Vakili and it appeared the pair were beginning to warm to each other.
