Love Island 2019 star Sherif Lanre has been booted out of villa for breaking the show’s rules.
The chef, 20, from London, is said to have agreed to leave the show following talks with bosses.
His departure comes just nine days after the show’s launch.
A Love Island spokesman 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.”
Sherif 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.”
Sherif was one of the original contestants who joined the show on Day Dot last week.
He was mired in drama from the start as none of the girls picked him at the first coupling – sparking a race row.
The telly star was then paired with Anna and they seemed to have been growing closer over the last few days.

During a trip to the Beach Hut, Sherif confessed he was thrilled to be getting along with Anna.
He said: “Outside on the terrace it was just a peck but that in itself means that she is opening up to me. It was nice.”
