Following the exit of Love Island's Sherif Lanre, a screenshot of Instagram messages claiming to be him and an unknown friend is revealing what went down in the villa on social media. In the screenshot, Sherif appears to be explaining to someone that he had got into a fight with Love Island member Anton Danyluk over Anna Vakili, which resulted in his quick exit.
The leaked direct messages have gone viral on social media sending fans into a craze. Sherif was kicked out of the villa after 'breaking rules' and misbehaving only nine days after the series' launch. But could this be the real reason behind it?
According to Mirror Online, an ITV source said the screenshot was exposed as a fake and the fans fell for it.
A Love Island Insider also told Mirror Online that "Sherif made a silly mistake and was immediately summoned to the Beach Hut - it wasn't a criminal matter and he was spoken to and agreed to leave."
Sherif has admitted that he was the only one to blame for his departure. Will we ever know what really happened? We might just wait and see.
