Love Island's Sherif has left the villa after breaking one of the show's rules, and of course conversation is rife about what he's done.
The news was confirmed today by ITV who said that the 20-year-old chef and rugby player "mutually agreed" to leave the show after conversations with producers.
While ITV haven't confirmed what rule was broken, there's lots of different theories flying around about what Sherif's been up to - and most people are saying he snuck in a phone.
Apparently Sherif was caught on his own phone refreshing Instagram seeing if Anna had followed him back #loveisland

One half of twitter: Sherif probably just used his phone.
The other half: HE LITERALLY BEAT ANTON TO DEATH OVER ANNA #LoveIsland

So, Sherif's been kicked out of #LoveIsland and the rumour is that he was using a personal phone to contact the outside world. You can't blame him, he's been using a Samsung for the last nine day, bet he just had enough!

Rumour has it that Sherif was using a phone & making some sort of contact with the outside World but I think he was removed from the villa for saying he was 20 when really man was 40. Don't quote me on this. :joy: #LoveIsland

One Twitter user said: "Now we all know the reason why Sherif didn't get much air time and why Anna said it's like playing hide and seek with him .... dudes been hiding in closets using his phone."
Repeating rumours from an unknown source, another said: "Haha Sherif booted for sneaking a phone in and texting his mates whilst he's doing a dump what a guy."
Singer Jake Quickenden joked: "Apparently Sherif was caught on his own phone refreshing Instagram seeing if Anna had followed him back."
While the Islanders are given villa phones for internal use, a phone from the outside would be considered contraband, which would be a breach of the show rules if Sherif had snuck one in.
The Islander's villa phones give them access to a camera and an in-villa messaging service where they can message Islanders directly or create group chats, but there is no access to the internet or social media.
To make matters even more confusing, people are all scratching their heads after reports that Joe, Lucie, Anna and Sherif have been removed from the Love Island app.
Why have both Sherif's and Anna's profiles been taken down from the love island app tho? Has she walked :eyes: #loveisland- Bubs (@Chloethewanted_) June 11, 2019
The news of Sherif's departure was announced today (Tuesday 11th). In a statement, Sherif said: "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."
He added: "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."
The reason why is expected to be addressed in tonight's show.
We can barely wait for the goss...
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
