Even though there has been a lot of drama during this season of Love Island, nothing has generated as many questions as Sherif Lanre’s sudden exit from the villa. Addressing his removal from the villa during the show, voiceover guy Iain Stirling remarked, “Earlier today, following conversations with producers, Sherif left the villa. But for the other Islanders, it’s another day in paradise.”
Since then, there has been much conjecture about what occurred, with the widespread impression that we would never learn the truth. Sherif released a statement that didn’t reveal much on Instagram, writing: “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 👊 #ItIsWhatItIs.”
But now the ex-Islander has spilled the beans on what happened. “I did kick Molly-Mae in the groin area, but it was an accident and she 100 percent was not injured afterwards,” he told. At first glance, she did appear to be in pain, but, as she stood up, she seemed fine, and we all laughed about it. “I turned to Tommy and said, ‘That was a c*** punt.’ I realise now that was wrong and I would like to apologize.”

That’s the first time I’ve heard that word, and I have no idea where it comes from. It just came out of my mouth, and I’m quite sure I’ve heard it somewhere before. “But I realise it can be offensive and, as someone that was raised by a strong and loving mother, I want to say that I would never intentionally harm a woman.” “I know I have been stupid and let myself down, but I was not being malicious.”
ITV informed UK: “Sherif fully accepted and agreed that he broke the rules and that he should leave. We have a duty of care towards all of the Islanders and as such we would not make public the details of the breach of code.” To Sherif’s knowledge, he has never been asked to “sign a confession” or required to do so. He admitted without hesitation that he had done something wrong and should depart.
“We take any instance of inappropriate behaviour very seriously and we speak to all of the islanders to remind them of what we condone to be acceptable behaviour during their time on the show.”
