Love Islands Sherif has claimed he thinks he was the victim of 'unconscious racism' in the villa after he was kicked out for inappropriate behaviour.

The chef, 20, suggested that he was pulled aside for certain comments he made during his time on the programme while other Islanders 'got away' with them.

Sherif said during an interview with the Sun following his departure, that he thinks there was an 'inherent bias' in producers' minds against him.

He said: 'I can't rule out that racism was a factor here. I think there may have been some unconscious racism.

'By that I mean, the producers might not have been aware of what they were doing, but they may have had an inherent bias in their minds that caused them to act against me.

'I say this because there were so many things I was pulled aside on. The first was calling Amber 'lighty,' which I know is a poor choice of words but she did not get offended.'
