On leaving the villa, Sheriff said in a statement:
“In a case of poor judgment, 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.”
Over on Twitter, Celebs Go Dating star, London Hughes sent out a tweet saying; ‘I got told by a tv exec that Sherif got kicked off of #LoveIsland for w**king in the jacuzzi.’
Masturbating in the villa is strictly forbidden and although all signs point towards that conclusion, some people are not convinced by the rumour or by London’s tweets. One follower responded to the claims made by London, saying“B-b-but how’d he get to the jacuzzi when it’s in the hideaway and off limits.”…
Sherif was booted from the villa on Tuesday leaving fans shocked and confused. We were given a short statement from both Love Island producers and Sherif Lanre himself, but with no clear explanation. Fans of the show took to twitter to vent their frustration at being left in the dark…
Since returning back to the UK, Sherif has kept relatively tight lipped continuing to allow the mystery to unfold. Although not addressing the rumours, the 20 year old has broken his social media silence by taking to Instagram stories to address his 280K followers;
‘Thank you to everyone including my friends and family for the support I’ve come back to.’
‘I appreciate you all and hope I provided some good, positive moments during my time on Love Island, and for anyone wondering, I’m all good.’ adding the infamous phrase from this series to end his post with; ‘#ItIsWhatItIs #BiggerThingsToCome.’
