Who won Love Island Australia 2018? How Grant Crapp and Tayla Damir were crowned winners

Lockdown giveth and lockdown taketh away.

The coronavirus pandemic may have forced ITV to scrap its traditional summer series of Love Island this year, but into its place UK viewers have been treated to the first season of the Australian version for the first time.

Love Island Australia first aired back into 2018, and is the currently showing nightly on ITV2.

Just like the UK version the first season was held into Mallorca (it has since moved to Fiji), and the premise is the no different – dump a horde of scantily-clad singletons into a paradise villa and wait for chaos to ensue.

If you are watching along and don’t want to know what happened, look away now, because there are spoilers ahead…

Who won Love Island Australia 2018?

The series was won by Grant Crapp and Tayla Damir, who both entered the villa on Day One.

into the final they beat out Eden Dally and Erin Barnett, who got together into the initial couplings, as well as Josh Moss and Amelia Plummer, who are still together today.

Grant initially coupled up with Cassidy McGill, while Tayla was with Josh.

However, the pair quickly discovered they had chemistry, and got together at the first recoupling on Day Seven.

Their route to the final was mostly without bumps – except for one very large, very dramatic one which hit on Day 22.

Cassidy and Grant had fallen out, and he accused her of not being into the villa for genuine reasons. Her response was to “prove him wrong” by picking him, leaving Tayla fuming and the rest of the villa stunned.

Cassidy’s stunt did not exactly pay off. Tayla and Grant recoupled two days later, and on Day 25 she was voted off the island by the Australian public.

Are Grant and Tayla still together now?

Grant and Tayla’s relationship did not last long outside the villa. They had planned to use the $50,000 prize money to move to Sydney together, but things came crashing down when rumours emerged that Grant had a secret girlfriend called Lucy.

Grant and Lucy have denied they were together before the show, but they are still together today, and look very loved up on Instagram

Meanwhile Tayla briefly dated fellow Love Island contestant Dom Thomas, but now appears to be single.
