If you thought our version of ‘Love Island’ was dramatic, it turns out it has nothing on the Australian incarnation. 

The show has been making waves on both sides of the world after things kicked off in shocking fashion over the weekend when there was a physical altercation. 

A huge brawl erupted in the villa (which is also based in Mallorca, like the UK show) between contestants Eden Dally and Grant Crapp, following the elimination of fellow Islanders Justin Lacko and Elias Chigros. 

Things all kicked off on the Australian version of 'Love Island'

In scenes reminiscent of Big Brother 5′s infamous ‘Fight Night’, the pair had to be pulled apart after squaring up to one another. 

Grant had stepped in to defend his girlfriend Tayla Damir after Eden rowed with her and Millie Fuller about the exit of Justin and Elias, and as you can see from the footage below, the incident was explosive. 

The video has been shared all over the internet, with fans of the UK show calling for ITV2 to air the Aussie version too:
