When did Love Island Australia’s Grant and Tayla break up?
Grant and Tayla lasted only two weeks after they received their winner’s crowns in 2018. Tayla revealed the news on Instagram but didn't mention the reason behind their split.
She wrote: “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."
She added: "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.”
Why did Grant and Tayla break up?
Grant’s rumoured live in girlfriend turned out to be true as it emerged he went on Love Island Australia to promote his brand and get famous.
In a tell-all interview after the show Tayla said: “It came out that there were new accusations that Grant had a live-in girlfriend, and he's gone on the show to promote his business and get famous.
“Once I was able to access media and read the articles, I told Grant he needed to own up. I finally got the answer that was the truth: he was on there to promote himself and he did have a girlfriend who was running his business while he was inside the villa."
Grant denied the accusations saying he and Lucy split before Love Island Australia.
