Love Island viewers spotted Sherif's arm in the villa and the memes are hilarious

WE. WANT. ANSWERS.
Sherif Lanre being booted out of Love Island is probably one of the TV show's biggest scandals to date – and we're only nine days in. ITV announced Sherif was given the axe after violating the rules yesterday (June 11) and still, no-one quite knows why.
What are the Love Island 2019 rules and which one did Sherif break?
"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," Sherif said, in a statement.
Love Island viewers have their theories, though, ranging from masturbating in the jacuzzi (FYI, masturbation is strictly against the rules) to getting in a fight with his former love rival Anton Danyluk.
Anyway, everyone has been guessing and we all thought Love Island would shed some light on it during Tuesday night's episode – erm, sadly not.
Love Island barely addressed what had happened with Sherif but we did see a teeny tiny glimpse of the rugby player-turned-chef… well, we saw a bit of his arm.
Twitter went wild after seeing a snippet of Sherif's arm. He barely got any screen time but LI chose to show his arm – could it be a clue as to why he left!?

Mad how they can just edit Sherif completely out of the episode before he has even gone, all I’ve seen is his arm lol— Zak Boniface (@aPinchOfBon) June 11, 2019
It doesn't look like we're ever going to get a clear answer on why Sherif was kicked out at this rate, with both him and ITV keeping extremely tight-lipped on the situation.
But, what we do know is, his mother Diana Rollanson-Williams is fuming about her son's "unfair" shock exit from the programme after less than two weeks.
"I don't know the real reason yet, but I am determined to get to the bottom it it," she revealed to the MailOnline.
"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."
She added: "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. He is so lovely, lovely young man, a great boy. He is not a fame chaser. He was not looking for fame."
