Love Island Australia fans rejoice as Tayla Damir and Grant Crapp win the show – beating Eden and Erin


LOVE Island Australia fans rejoiced this evening as Tayla and Grant won the show in a nail-biting finale.

The pair beat Eden and Erin to first place, with Josh and Amelia coming in third.

Grant and Tayla were crowned the winners this evening

The series initially aired Down Under back in 2018, but UK viewers have been glued to their screens this summer with nightly episodes.

It replaced the usual British version of the show, which was unable to go ahead this year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In tonight’s finale, host Sophie Monk crowned Grant and Tayla the champions.

Although the pair’s relationship got off to a rocky start, with Grant initially coupled up with Cassidy before Tayla stole him, the pair had been together since the first week.

The series initially aired in Australia two years ago

So had Eden and Erin, who’d made no secret of the fact that they thought they were going to win the show in recent episodes.

The pair have also been divisive with their treatment of other islanders, with Eden and Grant regularly coming to blows and former Islander Teddy admitting that he felt Eden was a “bully”.

Over the weeks, Eden’s behaviour had several of his housemates in tears, with Grant even storming out of the villa at one point when the hot-headed Aussie picked a fight with him in the kitchen.

Viewers were thrilled that Eden and Erin did not take home the gold as they expected, and flocked to social media to share their reaction.

Fans were thrilled that Eden and Erin didn’t win

One wrote: “Eden and Erin’s faces OMG I’M CRYING.”

Another added: “It must have come as such a shock to Erin and Eden that they didn’t win !”

A third said: “Soooo happy that Grant and Tayla wiped that smug grin of Eden and Erin’s faces. They thought they had it in the bag.”

As with the UK series, Grant and Tayla had the opportunity to “split or steal” the $50,000 (£27,000) prize fund.

Tayla chose the envelope with the money in, and opted to share the winnings with her boyfriend.

Josh and Amelia came third

Tayla’s joy was short-lived as it soon transpired Grant had a girlfriend on the outside

Despite their happy ending on the reality series, Tayla faced severe heartache upon their return to Australia, where it was revealed that Grant had a secret girlfriend on the outside the entire time.

The hunk hadn’t been honest when signing up the dating show, only going on it to promote his clothing line.

Grant previously denied that he had a live-in girlfriend back in Oz, but split from Tayla just two weeks after the show ended, and was back with his “ex” a fortnight after that.

This was particularly shocking for fans of the show as Grant and Tayla had been shown to be intimate in the villa, with Grant even proclaiming his love for the brunette beauty before an elaborate proposal asking her to be his girlfriend.
