It's hard to truly tell if these screenshots are real or photoshopped as these things are easily faked.

Love Island fans reacted to the DMs on Twitter;


Show bosses announced the 20-year-old chef had been removed from the villa for ‘breaking the rules’ on Tuesday afternoon.

Sherif Has Left The Love Island Villa

Sherif said in an official statement;

“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.”

Sherif is a semi-pro rugby player who lives in London. He described himself as "upbeat and cheeky and outrageous" and prides himself on his ability to make people laugh.

ITV has shut down rumours of a fight between Sherif and Anton

It was announced yesterday that Sherif Lanre had been removed from the Love Island villa for 'breaking the rules.'

Screengrabs of a message from the islander reveal he had a fight with Anton in the villa.

However, ITV claim these messages, 'did not come from Sherif.'

The text reads,

'Anton happened. Purposely moving to Anna while I'm right next to him trying to touch her leg. Asked him for a chat in private because I wanted to confront him and it got heated and security had to split us up, heartbroken but s**t happens man.'


ITV however, has shut down claims of a fight between the Islanders.

A spokesperson for the channel told Heart, 'We have checked and these messages did not come from Sherif.'
