Australia’s first Love Island winning couple Grant and Tayla are already facing hurdles in their relationship, after Grant finally came clean and admitted he had a secret girlfriend in the outside world.

Needless to say, Tayla’s not happy about the situation, and she’s been very close to calling time on their reality romance.

“It went though my mind, for sure,” the 21-year-old told KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O show on Monday morning.

“Obviously coming out and finding that information, it was a big shock to the system, and it was like, ‘Ok well do you actually love me?'”

The model is giving the tradie a second chance, but if he blows it again, the romance will end for good.

“We obviously spoke through it,” she explained. “We’re trying to rebuild the trust so that’s where we’re at at the moment.”

When radio host Kyle Sandilands asked Grant how he could rebuild the trust, Tayla was quick to answer with the obvious: “Not have a girlfriend on the side”.

Be has contacted Tayla for further comment.

Last month a Love Island fan account on Instagram shared a meme, suggesting there may have been more to Grant’s love life.


The meme featured two photos of Grant with a pretty brunette along with the sassy caption, “When Mr Crapp proves time and time again he’s a piece of [poo emoji].”

Underneath the two photos — one of which showed Grant cuddling up to a cute cat with the unknown woman — was a screenshot of a Facebook comment, with the user claiming Grant’s dating their cousin.

“They live together and they were 100% together when he went on the show,” the message read. “He was just going on there to promote himself and his fitness brand.”
