What seemed to be the last straw in their relationship was Grant's 'secret girlfriend' who he kinda had (but also kinda hadn't) broke up with before he headed into the Love Island villa. Tayla was pretty pissed about the whole situation, but the couple openly talked about it and said they were moving forward from the drama.
However, shit still hit the fan and the couple split regardless, with Tayla announcing the news on her Instagram, saying, "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."
Grant then claimed he didn't know about the break up before taking to the 'gram himself to share a rather cringe-worthy 'get back with me' plea to Tayla — which is still live on his grid, BTW.
Despite this dirty laundry being aired for all to see, Grant managed to throw perhaps the biggest curveball of them all this morning — revealing that he's back with his secret girlfriend!
In a NW exclusive photoshoot, Grant admitted that he's back living in Canberra with his ex-girlfriend, Lucy Cartwright, by his side.
In their joint interview, Lucy revealed that while they have been friends for a long time, they weren't anything super serious before he headed into the villa. In fact, Lucy claims that "I didn't really think I had feeling for Grant," but then everything changed when she was watching Love Island back home.
Grant seems pretty stoked to be back with Lucy too, explaining his side of the story by saying, "Obviously I was going into the Villa with an open heart and looking for love. But then, I've come out, me and Tayla are finished and I'm back with Lucy. It does make you think about what you valued... the friendship [I had] before I went in there".
Well, that was a really 180 degree fliperoo, wasn't it?!
We can only hope that Tayla hasn't got Google alerts on for Grant right now, because this news is not going to sit well with her…
