Molly-Mae reveals if there’s any “beef” between the pair.
Love Island may be over for another series but now that the contestants are out of the villa there’s even more to talk about.
And while this year’s series had its fair share of headlines over the weeks, early on there was one story that had everyone talking – Sherif Lanre’s mysterious exit from the villa on day nine, way back in mid-June.
While ITV didn’t give any details about what led to his departure, eventually Sherif himself revealed that he was booted out of the villa after he accidentally kicked Molly-Mae in the groin and called it a “c*** punt”.
Now, in an interview with Digital Spy and other media, Molly-Mae has had her say on the incident.
When asked if there is “any beef” between her and Sherif, Molly-Mae said: “No absolutely not. No beef with me and Sherif.
“I’ve not got my phone back yet, I’ve not even spoken to Sherif but there’s absolutely no beef between me and Sherif. Love the boy to pieces.”
Speaking about the incident last month, Sherif said: “I did kick Molly-Mae in the groin area, but it was an accident and she 100 per cent was not injured afterwards.
“She did appear to be in pain at first but then she stood up and seemed fine and we started laughing about it.
“I turned to Tommy and said, ‘That was a c*** punt’. I realise now that was wrong and I would like to apologise,” he added.
“I’ve never used the word before and I don’t know where it came from. I think I have heard other people saying it and it just popped out.
“But I realise it can be offensive and, as someone that was raised by a strong and loving mother, I want to say that I would never intentionally harm a woman.
“I know I have been stupid and let myself down, but I was not being malicious.”
Love Island aired on ITV2, and you can catch up on the show via ITV Hub.
