Meanwhile, rugby player Sherif expressed his regret in a statement, saying: ‘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.’

During his time on the show, Sherif was coupled up with 28-year-old pharmacist Anna Vakili.

Romance had began blossoming between the pair and they even shared a romantic first kiss just days ago.
