Haris from Love Island breaks silence on fighting video

Haris Namani from Love Island has responded to a video which shows him having a fight in the street, after he was dumped from the villa last night [25 January.]

The 21-year-old TV salesman from Doncaster left the show after the public vote saw him in the bottom three most popular men, amid The Sun obtaining a video which shows him punching someone last May.

In his exit interview, Haris admitted his upset over the video going viral, insisting it wasn't a fair reflection of what happened.

He said:

"I'm devastated that this video has been seen, it's not a reflection of my character. I'm not someone that goes looking for fights and I didn't want to be in that situation. This was a heat of the moment thing.

"The video doesn't show everything that happened. Afterwards we met up and we cleared the air; we've shaken hands and we get along now. It's not something that would happen again."

Previously, a source from The Sun reported that Haris was going to be dumped from the villa during the vote, which saw Australian Islanders Jessie and Aaron have the final say.

"Haris was booted off Love Island last night," a source said on Tuesday. "There was a dumping and he got the chop. It is, in part, a relief for the show’s bosses, in light of the video of Haris in a street fight."

Responding to the report, a Love Island spokesperson said: "We would never comment on dumpings or show formats to avoid ruining the show for the viewers."

They continued to Metro, "We execute extensive background checks in advance of Islanders entering the show and are one of the only shows in the UK to offer such a detailed training programme to provide education and instruction to Islanders on what is considered unacceptable behaviour and how they should conduct themselves in the villa."
