Love Island star Danny Bibby has broken his silence after his exit from the villa to apologise for using a racial slur before joining the show.
Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom was hit with more than 1,500 complaints over his casting after social media users found an old post in which Danny used the N-word back in 2019.
He was dumped from the show last week and is now back home, and he returned to Instagram to explain and apologise.
Danny wrote: “Hello everyone, I am finally home safe and sound and back with my friends and family and more importantly my cat ruffin.
“Whilst I would have liked to have stayed in a little longer so people could have got to know the real Danny Bibby, I am glad to be back so I can address the matter of the post on Instagram properly.
The telly star concluded his message by insisting he wants to put the incident behind him and getting on with living a “normal life”.
He went on: “I would like to now get on a normal life with my brilliant friends and family.
“I’d like to say a big thank you to all my friends, family and the public for their overwhelming support throughout my love island journey.”
