Grant Crapp and Tayla Damir are the couple who broke up just as quickly as they got together on the show Love Island Australia.
Just two weeks after the show finished and they were crowned the winners of the reality TV series designed to help singles fall in love, the pair announced that they had split, with the reason being well, Grant wasn’t actually single when he went into the house.
Tayla admitted to us on the Kyle and Jackie O show that finding out Grant had a secret girlfriend while he was in the Love Island villa had caused major problems for the couple and just a few days later she announced that they had broken up.

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.
Of course this break up isn’t black and white and as we later discovered Grant and Tayla both have very different opinions on what really caused them to break up. If you missed that, catch up here because there’s so much drama here it would seriously take us all day to explain.
The basic gist is that Tayla says that Grant doesn’t care about her and has been ignoring all of her messages. While on the other hand Grant claims that he’s completely heartbroken and still wants to be with Tayla.
Honestly we don’t know who to believe, but Kyle and Jackie caught up with Grant once again today and he was adamant that he’s still in love with Tayla and is trying to get in touch with her.
“It’s been hard for me, it really has…I haven’t cried but I’ve been close,” said Grant. “I’m more heartbroken. I’m still trying to get over you know and everyone’s asking me, ‘Are you going to move on? Are you going to move on?’ How do you move on? I’m still in love with the girl.”
But this love story isn’t over just yet as long as Mr Crapp has anything to do with it. Grant revealed that he is absolutely still trying to win Tayla back, and he had the texts on his phone to prove it.
“I’m trying to make communication with her…I’ve got some text messages and she hasn’t replied to me since so, since Saturday,” explained Grant. “I just want to catch up with her. I wanted to talk to her face to face.”
Of course we all know that poor old Grant’s not the best when it comes to communication and so Kyle and Jackie wanted to know exactly what he sent to Tayla to work out why she wouldn’t reply. And so he read out his text message live on air. This is what he said:
“Look I know it’s hard but this is all new to me. I’m trying to handle this the best way possible. I’m not trying to make you look bad and that’s not what I want,” read the message.
Grant then went on to say that despite all of the Crapp that’s been floating around, he’s still in love with her.
“I still love you Tayla and I don’t care if you or anyone else believes that, that’s the truth. I am in Sydney as of Monday, as you know, can we please meet up and talk about everything properly?”
“I’m not going to tell anyone (apart from all of Kyle and Jackie O’s listeners…oops). I don’t give a f*ck about anything else right now, only us. Please give me a chance to hear me out. I want to be with you Tayla. Let me know.”
As of yet Tayla has not responded to Grant’s message but maybe this big gesture of him professing that he still loves her on our radio show will get her attention?
He’ll be back on air for another round of Crapp Or Not tomorrow morning so hopefully we’ll hear an update then! Stay tuned!
