Love Island’s Sherif Lanre was axed from the ITV2 dating show in its early stages after accidentally kicking fellow islander Molly-Mae Hague in the groin during a play fight, before making a crude joke about it to Tommy Fury.
Speaking after his exit, Sherif explained that after Molly-Mae was accidentally kicked in the groin, he made a vile joke to co-star Tommy Fury, which he now deeply regrets.
Sherif told The Sun: “I did kick Molly-Mae in the groin area but it was an accident and she 100 per cent was not injured afterwards.
“She flinched and bent over to protect herself. Then she stood up and seemed fine and we started laughing about it.
“I turned to Tommy Fury and said, ‘That was a c*** punt."
Speaking from Spain after the final of the show, Molly-Mae said she has no hard feelings towards Sherif.
She said: “Is there any beef with me and Sherif? No absolutely not. No beef with me and Sherif.
"I've not got my phone back yet, I've not even spoken to Sherif but there's absolutely no beef between me and Sherif. Love the boy to pieces."
Following the incident, Sherif was woke up from his sleep and told by producers that he would be leaving the villa.
