Viral text messages revealing Sherif Lanre was kicked off Love Island for fighting Anton are FAKE

A VIRAL rumour claiming Sherif Lanre was axed from Love Island for fighting Anton Danyluk is fake, The Sun Online can reveal.

The chef was sent packing on day nine of the show for "breaking strict rules" although ITV has not revealed the exact reason behind his exit.

A screengrab of text messages circulating on Twitter, alleged to have come from Sherif, claimed he and Anton squared off over Anna Vakili.

The fake conversation read: "Anton happened. Purposely moving to Anna while I'm right next to him trying to touch her leg.

"Asked him for a chat in private because I wanted to confront him and it got heated and security had to split us up."

However, ITV sources said the screen grabs were fake and that wasn’t the real reason he was booted out of the villa.

Earlier today a Love Island spokesman told The Sun: "After breaking the villa rules Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa."

Sherif 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.

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