LOVE Island’s Sherif Lanre was today spotted with bandages covering his face after having a mystery operation at a plastic surgery clinic.
The 20-year-old – who was famously booted out of the villa after nine days – emerged from the building wearing dressing that covered his chin and wrapped around his head.
It’s unknown what treatment the former hunk in trunks had undergone, but he was seen leaving the London clinic two hours after he went in.
When he arrived earlier he looked in good spirits and was seen smiling as he entered the posh surgery.
As he left, he seemed more subdued and kept his head low as he headed home to recover.
Sherif was dressed comfortably in jogging bottoms, white jersey and denim jacket.
He hid his eyes behind a pair of sunglasses.
Meanwhile, the latest pics come after Sherif claimed that ITV bosses have a “vendetta” against him and are trying to make his life hell.
The former chef was recently dumped from the Love Island reunion show after being thrown out of the villa for kicking Molly-Mae Hague in the groin.
Speaking to exclusively to The Sun Online, Sherif said: “They are saying that because my contract has ended I am not required to go.
“But I want to go so I don’t see how ‘not required’ means that I am banned.
“I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye when I had to leave and I was looking forward to seeing the friends I made in the villa.
“The reunion would have been my one chance to see some of them this summer. Several of them have said they would see me there. The situation is upsetting.”
Sherif was booted out of the villa after kicking Molly Mae in the groin during a play fight and referring to it as a “c*** punt”.
He issued a grovelling apology after the incident but accused bosses of being racist, saying other stars had been let off for controversial remarks.

The star told The Sun: “I can’t rule out that racism was a factor here. I think there may have been some unconscious racism.
“By that I mean, the producers might not have been aware of what they were doing, but they may have had an inherent bias in their minds that caused them to act against me.”
Sherif will still receive Love Island’s full aftercare support despite being kicked off the show.
