Love Island viewers furious at convey's explanation of Sherif Lanre's exit

56

Love Island viewers were angry with how the ITV2 show bosses dealt with the sudden exit of Sherif Lanre from the villa.

The 20-year-old chef and semi-professional rugby player’s departure was announced earlier on Tuesday, with ITV saying only that Sherif had broken the programme’s rules.

About Island
An island or isle is any piece of sub-continental land that is surrounded by water. Very small islands such as emergent land features on atolls can be called islets, skerries, cays or keys. An island in a river or a lake island may be called an eyot or ait, and a small island off the coast may be called a holm. A grouping of geographically or geologically related islands is called an archipelago, such as the Philippines.
An island may be described as such, despite the presence of an artificial land bridge; examples are Singapore and its causeway, and the various Dutch delta islands, such as IJsselmonde. Some places may even retain “island” in their names for historical reasons after being connected to a larger landmass by a land bridge or landfill, such as Coney Island and Coronado Island, though these are, strictly speaking, tied islands. Conversely, when a piece of land is separated from the mainland by a man-made canal, for example the Peloponnese by the Corinth Canal or Marble Hill in northern Manhattan during the time between the building of the United States Ship Canal and the filling-in of the Harlem River which surrounded the area, it is generally not considered an island.
There are two main types of islands in the sea: continental and oceanic. There are also artificial islands.

Comedian Iain Stirling, who narrates the programme, said in his voiceover: “Earlier, following discussions with the producers, Sherif left the villa. But for the other islanders it’s another day in paradise.”

Sherif booted off Love Island

It was noticeable that Sherif was not part of the Tuesday night episode, though it is uncertain whether he had left before filming had begun on the day or whether he had been edited out.

Viewers were upset that arguably the most dramatic moment of the series had been glossed over so flippantly.

A third pleaded: “Can someone pleaseeeee just mention Sherif why he’s been kicked out.”

While a fourth raged: “I better get a preview of Sherif leaving in five mins or this show is over.”

In a statement, Sherif admitted his “poor judgement” led to him leaving the villa.

“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,” he said.

“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.”

*Love Island airs all week at 9pm on ITV2.
