LOVE Island’s Molly-Mae Hague has opened up for the first time about the horrific incident that saw Sherif Lanre kicked off the show.
As we revealed last month, the 20-year-old left after accidentally kicking her in the crotch during a play fight and calling it a “c*** punt”.

Speaking to The Sun Online, Molly-Mae insisted: “There is no beef between me and Sherif.”
She added: “I haven’t got my phone back yet so I haven’t spoken to him yet. But I love the boy to pieces.”
Chef Sherif lost his place in the show after the vile joke backfired, being hauled out of the villa without the chance to say goodbye to his fellow Islanders.
He later explained: “I have never used the word before and I realise how insulting it is to women.

“As someone raised by a strong and loving mother, I want to say that I would never intentionally offend women.
Tommy, 20, and Molly-Mae, 19, were beaten to the winners’ crown by Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea, despite being clear favourites for much of the series.
However, they insisted there was no ill-feeling at being pipped to the post by the couple, who had only been together for 12 days.
She said: “There was no annoyance at all. The end of the day time is nothing. You can be with someone a few days and feel like you’ve known them forever.

“It doesn’t matter at the end of the day. Amber and Greg won and they deserved it. They’re incredible together and there’s no bitterness from mine and Tommy’s part at all.”
And she hit out at viewers who said she had faked her relationship with the boxer.
Molly-Mae insisted: “If I had been fake we definitely wouldn’t have made it that far.
“People who matter to me know how I feel about Tommy. That’s all that matters at the end of the day.”

She also said it was “a shame” that Belle Hassan had branded her “two-faced” and suggested voting her and Anton Danyluk to leave was a case of tactics.
Molly-Mae insisted: “It is a shame but Tommy and I will hopefully speak to Anton and Belle when we get out and chat about it. There was no tactics used at all. Absolutely none.”
Belle has told The Sun Online: “I think Molly has too many opinions sometimes,” Belle admitted. “I like Molly, I really get on with Molly, but she can be a little bit two faced, unknowingly.
“She doesn’t mean it, but she does say that.”
