She told the MailOnline: "I don’t know the real reason yet, but I’m determined to get to the bottom of it.

"I don’t know if he has actually done anything wrong yet. I need to look at his Love Island code of conduct and I need to speak to him properly to find out what really happened.

"But I’m his mum, I’m going to think it was a bit unfair. I think so. I’m going to defend my son."

Diana said Sherif is a "lovely young man" who thought it was a "great opportunity" to go on Love Island.

Earlier today, Sherif said in a statement: "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 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 don’t know the real reason yet, but I’m determined to get to the bottom of it.

"I really enjoyed my time in the villa and look forward to catching up with everyone on the outside."

A Love Island spokesman said: "After breaking the villa rules Sherif had conversations with the producers and it was mutually agreed that he would leave the Love Island villa."

ITV has not yet said which rules were broken which lead to him leaving.

Following his departure, fans were quick to express their shock.
