Ex-Love Island contestant Sherif Lanre has been banned from taking part in the show's reunion episode this Sunday, which brings all the stars back together for a catch-up.

Sherif was one of the original Islanders looking for love, but was removed from the show a couple of weeks into the series, after Molly-Mae Hague was sent in.

He the accused the show of being 'racist' - despite the reason for his removal being linked to an alleged inappropriate incident with Molly-Mae, in which he is said to have kicked her in the groin and used an unacceptable term in front of her.

According to The Sun, ITV has told Sherif, 20, that he is not required because his contractual agreements on Love Island have ended.

He is still, apparently, eligible for the aftercare program that former contestants have access to. 

A source close to Sherif told The Sun: 'Sherif is gutted. He was really looking forward to having the chance to reunite with the other Islanders who became his friends during the villa.

'It's hard to fathom why they wouldn't want him as he was so popular during his short stint on the show. He made a mistake and apologised, so why he is still be punished is hard to fathom.'
