Norman Lamb calls for more after care (Picture: EMPICS/ITV)Liberal Democrat MP Norman Lamb is calling for ITV bosses to support axed Love Island contestant Sherif Lanre.
The 20-year-old was removed from villa this week by ‘mutual consent’ with producers for breaking one of the ITV2 reality dating show’s rules and so far there has been no confirmation as to what he did to be kicked out of the villa.
In the wake of departure, Sherif has been the subject of intense social media speculation over what he did and now former Health Minister Lamb has urged ITV to ensure there is proper post-show care in place for him to ensure he copes with the fallout, following the tragic suicides of past stars Mike Thalassitis and Sophie Gradon.
ITV2 have assured Sherif will be accompanied by 24 hour security as he adjusts to home life and his sudden rise to fame.
Lamb is quoted by the Daily Star newspaper as saying: ‘There has been a tragic lack of care for reality stars.’
Sherif has since arrived back in London after he was photographed going to his mum’s house.
Fans were hoping to find out more details about the ‘poor judgement’ that saw ITV bosses cut short his stint on the series on last night’s episode, but the only mention was by contestant Anna Vakili who said she misses him.

‘Thank you to everyone including my friends and family for the support I’ve come back to,’ he began to his 284k followers.
