Love Island's Danny Bibby has released a statement after a racist comment was unearthed on his Instagram profile.

Ahead of the Danny's arrival in the villa during tonight's (16 July 2021) episode, Love Island fans discovered a Instagram comment from 2019 in which he used a racial slur.

ITV released a statement on behalf of Danny, who briefly appeared on last night's episode of Love Island, in which he explained that he'd like to take the time, "to apologise to anyone that may have taken offence to [his] inappropriate remark."

His statement in full reads:

"I'd like to take the time to apologise to anyone that may have taken offence to my inappropriate remark.

"I never meant anything malicious by this comment at all. I am not a racist person and it's unacceptable language and ignorant.

"I meant no offence and feel like I have really learnt from my mistakes and will never use that word again.

"I am a kind loving person and hopefully you get to see that in the show."

ITV have also confirmed (via Digital Spy) that Danny will still feature in tonight's (16 July 2021) episode and will go on a date with Kaz Kamwi.

Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 at 9pm.
