Sherif made a short statement.

He said: “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."

He continued, "I really enjoyed my time in the villa and look forward to catching up with everyone on the outside.”

Sherif was one of the 12 original islanders and before leaving the show was coupled with Anna.

It is unsure what this means for her situation or the next recoupling.
