By now we all know that the winning couple of Love Island Australia, Grant and Tayla, have broken up. But what we’re all dying to know is the details behind what actually led them to split and who actually did the dumping.

The news of the split was announced on Thursday afternoon, with posts going up both on Love Island Australia’s Instagram page as well as Tayla’s personal page.

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.

Grant however, seemed none the wiser to the situation, commenting on the status and claiming that he had no idea about the break up.

Of course, we all assumed that Tayla had decided that Grant’s lies about having a girlfriend on the outside while in the Villa were too much for her to handle and caused her to break up with him, but we needed confirmation.

And so, Kyle and Jackie O decided to bring both Grant and Tayla onto the show to give them both a platform to speak their side of the story and clear the air. What we didn’t expect though, was for their stories to be SO different!

Grant claimed that he’d had a bit of a tiff with Tayla and she suggested that things might not work out between them, but he didn’t think this was actually them breaking up. Therefore this is why he claimed to have found out about the split on social media.


Grant also explained that he’s utterly heartbroken and will try and win Tayla back.

“It’s broken my heart, it’s a bit unexpected but what do you do,” said Grant. “I will try my best to win her back. You can only try so hard but I love the girl deeply.”

By the end of our chat we were feeling a bit sorry for poor old Grant, thinking that he truly had been blindsided by the break up. But then Tayla came on the air to give her side of things, and well it was a COMPLETELY different story.

Tayla claimed that Grant is just a compulsive liar and she’s the one that’s actually heartbroken in this situation. She said that he’s made no effort to try and repair things with her and has even gone as far as to ignore her messages and block her on Instagram!

“I’d say I’m the heartbroken one considering it’s me that’s been through the ringer,” said Tayla. “I’ve given him the 10 days that we’ve been back to try and repair it and it hasn’t been repaired, I don’t know what else I can do…He’s ignoring my messages.”

So who do we believe when the stories are so different? Well seeing as he’s the one who’s lied time and time again, we’d have to think that Grant’s story is kinda full of Crapp…
