There have only been a handful of incidences where castmembers on Love Island have voluntarily withdrawn from the show and just one where someone was removed… Until now.

On Tuesday, June 11th it was announced that Sherif Lanre’s time in the villa would be coming to the end.

So will Sherif be in tonight’s episode of Love Island? Read on to find out what happens next…

Is Sherif kicked off in tonight’s episode?

No. We can still expect to see Sherif in episode 8 of Love Island (Tuesday, June 11th).

His family and friends confirmed on his Instagram that he would be departing from the show for an unspecified reason, but that he would still be on our screens tonight.

However, they since deleted that post from 14.00 pm on June 11th leaving viewers stumped for what was happening.

When will Sherif leave Love Island?

As the Love Island episodes are filmed usually a day behind the broadcast, that means we’d expect to see Sherif removed from the villa on Wednesday, June 12th.

But we cannot say for certain when Sherif will be off the show, as no full reason has been explained about his removal. One source said he will disappear in tonight’s episode (Tuesday, June 11th) before Iain Stirling makes the announcement of his removal.

Previously on Love Island when Malia Arkian was removed from the villa, it was done very quickly and without too much explanation, so we presume there might be a similar situation for Sherif in season 5.

Why was Sherif kicked off Love Island?

Nothing has been specified yet, but it is known that Sherif Lanre broke the rules of the show. 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.

And Sherif claimed it was down to “poor judgement”.

If you’re not familiar with some of the (rather odd, may we add) rules of Love Island, then read our piece here dissecting the rules that were put in place back in 2018.

But it looks like Sherif’s summer plans aren’t all gone to waste now he’s out of the villa, as he hinted on his Instagram story that he’d be heading to Makarska in Croatia.
