Sherif was forced to leave the villa
An ITV spokesperson confirmed Sherif had left the villa on Tuesday, saying: "After breaking the villa rules Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa." At the time, Sherif added: "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."

One person wrote: "Unless what Sherif did was really bad (I do not know what happened) isn't Love Island not telling us what happened to him just going to add to speculation, possibly adding to a negative impact on his mental health?
