He continued in the statement: “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.”

Sherif added: “I really enjoyed my time in the villa and look forward to catching up with everyone on the outside.”
It remains unknown what rule has been broken.
A TV source previously told The Mirror the three main reasons for being kicked out of the villa are racism, fighting or aggressive sexual behaviour.
There is no suggestion Sherif has done any of these.
The reality star had been coupled up with Anna Vakili, 28, during his time on the show.
The islander had recently expressed his feelings for the pharmacist after the duo got off to a cold start.
Ahead of his stint, Sherif had addressed his dating life and what he was hoping to find in the villa.
Reflecting on a date he had beforehand, he said: “I went on a date with a cougar once who I met through work.”
But the contestant added it “didn’t go to plan” and refused to elaborate on the reasons why.
Love Island 2019 continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
