Anna Vakili and Sherif Lanre’s Love Island romance was cut short when he was removed from the villa in the first week following an incident with Molly-Mae Hague, but it looks like things could be back on for the pair after reportedly recoupling outside of the show.

Anna got together with Jordan Hames following Sherif’s departure but they ended things with an explosive argument when Jordan tried to crack on to India Reynolds.

She’s now thought to have rekindled things with Sherif after reconnecting on a recent night out and swapping numbers.

“The chemistry was still there and it was obvious they were still attracted to each other,” a source told OK! magazine.

“Sherif and Anna flirted all night and he was even seen with his arms around her at one point.

“Anna and Sherif swapped numbers and it looks like their romance could be starting back all over again.”
