Just nine days into the fifth series of Love Island, Sherif Lanre’s journey to love was cut short with a sudden eviction as producers revealed that the original cast member would be sent packing for “breaking the villa rules”. Check out the video to see what Sherif is saying now!
Love Island, the nation’s most-watched reality TV show, has been back on screens for a mere ten days yet one contestant has somehow already managed to be dramatically axed for reasons still to be revealed.
Sherif Lanre, the 20-year-old chef and rugby player, seemed to be settling into life in the villa, coupled up with love interest Anna Vakili before everything took a swift downward turn.
While there has been an incessant surge of speculation surrounding the surprise eviction, neither party has come forward to confirm a reason, however many fan theories point to a bust-up with island rival, Anton Danlyuk.
Sherif has since be pictured arriving back at his mum’s home in dreary South London, a far cry from the sun-kissed villa in Majorca, and though he has so far restrained from saying too much, his mother has jumped to his immediate defence.
Diana Rollanson-Williams has admitted to Mail Online, “I need to look at his Love Island code of conduct and I need to speak to him properly to find out what really happened” Moreover she stated, “He is a lovely, lovely young man, a great boy… He is not a fame chaser. He is not looking for fame.”
