Love Island’s Haris admits he was banned from kissing games due to health issue

Love Island star Haris Namani confessed that producers banned him from taking part in kissing challenges because of a cold sore on his lip.

The 21-year-old told Reality podcast host Will Njobvu that he suffered from the hidden health issue for three days while he was in the villa and applied makeup to cover it up.

Unfortunately for Haris, by the time the cold sore finally went away, he'd been dumped from the villa.

"I had a cold sore for three days," he started. "The beer pong challenge, I couldn't kiss on that, I couldn't kiss on something else, so for three days I was out."

Host Will asked: "So you was told by producers that you couldn't kiss?"

"Yeah, I was taking like eight tablets a day to get it away because I was that fuming," he confessed. "I said, 'I need to get rid of this!'"

Anna-May Robey who took part in the podcast interview alongside Haris revealed that he would ask the girls for help covering up his lip situation.

"He was coming into the girls' dressing room to have his makeup done every day," she laughed.

"I kissed Olivia in the space challenge because it had gone by then but that day I got kicked off," Haris explained.

Will then laughed: "Cold sores are the worst, they come at the most inconvenient time!"

Haris and Anna-May were dumped from the villa together after Australian bombshells Jessie Wynter and Aaron Waters were forced to choose a boy and girl they'd like to dump from the island.

Both dumped contestants revealed that they believe Jessie is "playing a game" in the villa by coupling up with fan-favourite Will Young.

"Jessie's type on paper wasn't Will. When she came back from the date she said, 'I see him as a friend more than anything,'" Haris claimed.

Anna-May added: "I think she's watched [the show] before coming in and seen that Will is very very liked."
