Sherif Lanre was tragically cut from the show early on in the series following an unfortunate mishap with Molly-Mae. Now he’s banned from the reunion and the star is “gutted”. Check out the video to find out more!
Sherif Lanre had his time on Love Island, the nation’s most-watched reality TV show, immediately cut short following an incident with Molly-Mae which saw him accidentally kick the contestant and make a derogatory comment afterwards.
Despite the incident, fans and islanders were devastated to see him go and he’s managed to build his Instagram following to 505k, and many were even looking forward to his appearance on the reunion episode.
ITV have however released a statement dispelling all hope; “Sherif left the series of Love Island by mutual agreement after breaking the rules and there are no plans for him to appear at this weekend’s Aftersun Reunion.”
A spokesperson for Sherif has spoken out to explain that the star is truly disappointed by the news; “Sherif is gutted. He was really looking forward to having the chance to reunite with the other islanders who became he friends during the villa. It’s hard to fathom why they wouldn’t want him as he was so popular during his short stint on the show.”
The spokesperson reinforced the point that ITV are taking things too far by denying the ex-islander the opportunity to meet the others now they’re all on the outside; “It’s a shame ITV feel this strongly against him attending.”
