The 20-year-old agreed to leave the villa after breaking the rules, according to a show spokesperson.
In a statement he said he didnt conduct myself in the right way.
A Love Island insider has since said Sherif made a silly mistake and knew immediately that he would have to leave.
They added that it was not a criminal matter and would not be taken further.
The source told The Mirror: Sherif made a silly mistake and was immediately summoned to the Beach Hut – it wasnt a criminal matter and he was spoken to and agreed to leave.
Sherif knew he had to leave immediately after being called to the Beach Hut. No security were involved.
A Love Island spokesperson announced the news in a statement, which read: After breaking the villa rules Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa.
Sherif added: 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 didnt conduct myself in the right way and, as a 20 year old guy, its 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.
