Sherif Lanre has left Love Island 2019 after breaking the rules of the villa.

Love Island bosses have announced that Sherif has "mutually agreed" with producers to leave the show.


A spokesperson for Love Island confirmed today (June 11): "After breaking the villa rules Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa."

In a statement, 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."

What rules Sherif broke have not been revealed.

20-year-old Sherif from London is a chef and semi-pro rugby player.


He said before entering the show: "I’m upbeat and cheeky and outrageous with my own friends so hopefully that continues in the villa. I’m always on a mission to make people laugh. That’ll be of value in there."

Joining the villa on Day 1, Sherif added: "I lift anyone’s mood who is around me, whether that is through trying or not. I feel like if you’re down and around me, you’ll end up being a bit more upbeat. I don’t like to get into conflicts, I would rather spare someone’s feelings.

"Worst traits? Number one would be that I’m pretty outrageous, that can also translate to the bad side. On top of that, I laugh at everything which sometimes gets me into trouble.

"I can’t really take anything seriously. My actual laugh, my hysterical laugh is pretty ugly. People around me get that a lot and have to deal with it."

As things stand, right now the official couplings are: Amy Hart & Curtis Pritchard; Amber Gill & Anton Danyluk; Yewande Biala & Michael Griffiths; Lucie Donlan & Joe Garratt and Molly-Mae Hague & Tommy Fury.

Anna Vakili, who was originally coupled up with Sherif Lanre, is now single together with new Islander Danny Williams who entered the villa in Monday evening's show.

Love Island 2019 continues nightly on ITV2.


The series airs weeknights and Sunday evenings, while Saturday night sees a special 'Unseen Bits' episode.

Also on Sundays is After Sun spin-off with host Caroline Flack.
