Love Island star Danny Bibby has apologised from the villa for his past use of racist language.

In a historical Instagram post, Danny was seen to use the N-word.

He has since issued a statement saying: ‘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.’

New bombshell Danny came under fire after viewers flocked to his Instagram.

In a now-deleted post from November 2019, Danny responded to a friend, who was white, who commented on a picture of him in Dubai.

The original comment read: ‘Champ’, with Danny replying: ‘My n***a.’

When contacted by Metro.co.uk, ITV issued a statement from Danny’s father, who apologised for any offence caused and insisted that his son did not use the slur ‘maliciously’.

His dad Richard said: ‘Danny does not have a racist bone in his body and there were no racist intentions to this post. Although it was not done maliciously, it was a mistake.

‘I absolutely apologise on his behalf for the offence this wording may have caused. That would never have been his intention.’

Love Island returns tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
