A Love Island spokesperson said, “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 also issued a statement and 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.”
At the time of publication, it is unclear what rules Sherif has broken, or what this will mean for 28-year-old Anna Vakili, who he was coupled up with.
Sherif had worked as a chef and semi-pro rugby player before entering the Love Island villa and described himself as "upbeat, cheeky and outrageous" and "always on a mission to make people laugh".

She has beautiful eyes, a beautiful face, beautiful everything."
Curtis chose to couple up with Amy, who had previously been coupled up with Anton. She told the Beach Hut, "I don't feel like I have to force anything with Curtis because it's all so easy so I'm hoping that he picks me. But he was just talking to Yewande again. So, I don't know."
