Love Island fans were delighted when they discovered ITV2 was airing Love Island Australia in place of the cancelled summer series. But that excitement soon turned to a little bit of sadness when everyone tuned into the first series only to find that it was a repeat of the season that aired in 2018.
Still, it looks like some of you hadn't already seen which is why you're now here wanting to find out who won, right? So, if you don't mind any season 1 spoilers, let's take a look at who took home the prize money, shall we?
Who won Love Island Australia series 1?
If might surprise you to know Grant Crapp and Tayla Damir won the first season, splitting the $50,000 prize money between them. However, sadly like many Love Island couples before (and after them), they ended up breaking up just weeks after leaving the villa. Why? Well it was
partly mainly because Grant apparently had a secret girlfriend the entire time he was in Spain.
Grant denied the rumours, but just two weeks after their split he was back with the girlfriend in question. Meanwhile, Tayla ended up dating another series 1 contestant - Dom Thomas. Unfortunately, that also didn't work out and she's now dating Australian football star Nathan Broad.
Who were the Love Island Australia runners-up?
That then leads us to the Love Island Australia season 1 runners-up. You'll probably be less surprised to hear that Eden Danny and Erin Barnett, who were together from the start of the series, finished in second place. However, the pair announced their break up just two months after the show finished.
"We look back and cherish the time we have spent together, the memories we have created, in both Spain and in Australia," the pair said. "We can't thank each and everyone of you enough for the support and love you have shown us, but we have to be honest within ourselves as we realise that our forever as a couple is no longer."
If anything, the Love Island Australia contestants sure know how to put together a split statement...
