Why has Haris left Love Island 2023?
Haris became the second Islander to depart the villa after double dumping, which was filmed last night (January 23).

"It is, in part, a relief for the show's bosses in light of the video of Haris in a street fight".

ITV2 has tightened its vetting procedures over the last couple of years before the Islanders enter the villa.
This includes mental health and medical checks, as well as potential contestants also agreeing for their social media to be examined by producers.
A pal of the 21-year-old told The Sun: "We were all surprised when we heard Haris was going on Love Island.
"He's got quite a bit of a temper on him and if someone says something he's more than prepared to have a fight.
"He's got an advantage being a boxer and he knows he can cause damage because he trains four times a week.
"He knows what he is capable of because of his training. That kind of stuff has to stay in the ring.
"I'm surprised ITV didn't do further checks.
"I saw the row between him and Shaq and wasn't surprised in the slightest. That's the type of guy he is.
"What you see is what you get."
Who is Haris Namani?

Did Haris Namani find love in villa?
Haris entered the ITV show initially interested in Anna-May before deciding they were better off as friends.
Following that, he coupled up with Olivia Hawkins and was keen to impress her.
During the first couple up, he revealed he had crossed paths with her before.
As host Maya Jama asked Haris why he decided to step forward for Olivia, he began to share their outside link.
He said: "She's a stunning girl, but if you don't mind me asking, are you a ring girl?"
