Not a clue. Maybe Google and see if others have this problem.

It should be deleted from watsapp automatically...
Maybe try reset your contacts and also delete the chat you had with that contact.

I don't see an option to reset contacts.
Never chatted with them as it's a number that belonged to someone I knew and now it seems to belong to a new, unknown person. Hence why I want to delete it.

On iPhone:

Go to favorites tab, scroll up to the top and pull down
This will refresh the contacts
Alternatively, completely close the app and then reopen it
This should also refresh the contacts

I don't see a "refresh" button or "Favorites" tab anywhere.
I'm on Android.
In any case the contact somehow disappeared overnight after having deleted it from my phone's contacts.

Thanks guys for the help anyway.
