Grant apparently had no idea he and Tayla had broken up until he saw her Instagram post

“This is news to me??”

Love Island Australia winners Tayla and Grant should be firmly in their honeymoon phase given they only walked away with the $50k prize money a couple of weeks ago, but it appears reality TV love might not be all it's cracked up to be.

Earlier today, Tayla announced their split in a heartfelt Instagram post.

"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," she wrote.

"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."

The thing is though, apparently Grant had no idea about it.

Underneath the post from Love Island Australia's official account, Grant replied saying "This is news to me??"

Millie was quick to jump to Tayla's defence saying: "Are you kidding me I was with Tayla last night and you were with the boys in a different hotel. Another lie and yet again you hurt Tayla even more."

It seems the villa is split firmly down the middle and they're choosing sides based on gender.

Both Teddy and Jaxon quickly leapt to their mate's defence, claiming they were pretty sure Tayla and Grant were still the happy couple we all thought they were.

"Weren't you guys together yesterday?" Teddy asked.

Jaxon agreed, insisting he speaks to Grant most days and this was the first he'd heard.

Meanwhile, Edyn said, "Tayla should have walked away with the money… just sayin".

As you know, the couple was plagued with rumours of Grant having a secret girlfriend on the outside so I guess we just sit and wait to see what the real reason for the split was. We need to know so we can figure out if Grant was just playing dumb or genuinely had no idea about the breakup.

We're not ashamed of how invested we are.
