They might have looked to have been completely in love when they took out the title of Love Island Australia but today it has been announced that the loved up pair, well, aren’t so loved up.
That’s right, they’ve officially broken up. Love Island Australia announced the news on their Instagram page on Thursday.
This news comes after Grant and Tayla appeared on the Kyle and Jackie O show and revealed that the rumours of Grant being in a relationship with another woman when he entered the Villa were true.
Tayla told us that she was completely shocked when she found out about the secret girlfriend and thought about breaking up with Grant then and there. She told us thought that they were attempting to work on their relationship and move forward but it looks like that is no longer the case.
Tayla has taken to her Instagram page to thank everyone for their support during the journey. She confirmed that her and Grant have both decided to split but will remain friends.

I want to take the time to thank everyone who supported Grant and I during our Love Island journey and especially everyone who has continued to support us since. It has been incredible so far and I feel lucky and privileged to have had the opportunity. The number one thing for me going into Love Island was to ‘stay completely true to myself and my emotions’ and that’s what I must continue to do. But it’s with great heartbreak that I write this post to inform everyone that Grant and I are no longer together, but will remain amicable despite the circumstances. I hope everyone can understand that the last few days have been very emotional and overwhelming for me and that you can all respect my decision.
In an interview with The Fix Tayla said that she felt that Grant was just “too young” for her and this fact ultimately caused her to break things off with him on Wednesday evening.
“Obviously I’m heartbroken, it was a big shock to the system,” the 21-year-old explained. “I still respect him as a person and I just think he’s young and he’s made a massively bad decision, and didn’t really think of the consequences that maybe a girl would have fallen in love with him, which just happened to be me,” she said.
“Hopefully that’s something he learned through this experience and he learns how to play with people’s emotions.”
Grant has not yet made a statement about the break-up, but it seems that this could be because he had no idea that they had split!! Grant posted a comment to Love Island Australia’s Instagram post saying, “This is news to me??” with a shocked emoji.
Is this just Grant being, well Grant and just being a bit behind on things? Or did he seriously have no idea? We’re sure that there’s going to be more to this story…Stay tuned!
