Love Island: Sherif Lanre speaks out after being booted from the show – admitting it was ‘poor judgement’ that led to his departure

Love Island's Sherif Lanre has spoken out following the shock revelation that he's been booted out of the villa.

The 20 year old chef was one of the original members of season five, and the sensational news that he had been removed from the villa sent shockwaves through the nation.

Following his departure, Sherif released a statement to OK! online stating that it was “poor judgement” that led to his exit.

He said: "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 added: "After breaking the villa rules, Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa."

He’s not the only star to have left mid-way through the series.

Previously, Samira Mighty left the show in order to pursue a relationship with Frankie Foster, while Zara Holland left the show after her Miss Great Britain title was taken from her.

Niall Aslam also left half way through after struggling with his mental health.

Sherif was the second boy to enter this season and found himself on the subs bench after no girl stepped forward for him – later coupling with pharmacist Anna Vakili by default.

He then faced fierce competition from Anton Danyluk, who was trying to make a play for Anna.

Sherif was later honest about his feelings, and he and Anna shared a kiss on the terrace following a heart-to-heart.

Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV.
