Erin and Eden were paired together during Season One of Love Island Australia, and things just seemed to snowball from there! There was passion, there was drama, there were a lot of highs but equally there were many lows. We need something to fill the MAFS shaped hole that has been left in our hearts, so we are determined to get to the bottom of what happened between Eden and Erin.
1. What are Eden and Erin from Love Island's full names?
The full names of the former reality-tv show contestants are Eden Dally and Erin Alysha Barnett.
2. How old is Eden from Love Island?
Eden's birthday is the 31 August 1992. He will be 27 later this year.
3. How old is Erin from Love Island?
Erin was born 13 April 1995, meaning she will be 24 in 3 days time! Happy Birthday in advance Erin, what a great age!
4. How tall are Erin and Eden?
We don't know their exact heights, but Erin is a good head shorter than her former Love Island partner Eden.
5. What do Eden and Erin weigh?
Eden has a built physique and regularly trains in the gym. Eyeing him up, at a guess we'd say he weighs between 80-90kgs. Erin's claims than she dieted to achieve a weight of 49kgs before entering the villa concerned Love Island fans, although a Channel Nine spokesperson confirmed that her comments were made in jest and that she did not have a legitimate problem with her eating habits.
6. Where is Eden Dally from?
Eden Dally hails from Sydney, New South Wales and still lives in the capital city.
7. Where is Erin Barnett from?
Erin is from Melbourne, Victoria and is still based there
8. What did Erin and Eden do before appearing on Love Island Australia?
Before appearing on the reality tv series, Erin's job was as a nurse and Eden worked as a prison guard. This wasn't Erin's first time in front of the cameras though, a few years back she appeared on Beauty and The Geek's fifth season! She placed runner-up alongside IT guru and 'geek' Nathan. Maybe this was foreshadowing how Erin would do five years later on Love Island, when she and Eden took home 2nd prize.
9. Did Erin hook-up with anyone else on the show?
Erin and Eden were paired together during the first round of Coupling. When Teddy arrived in the villa on Day 21, he wasted no time in stealing Erin away for a date. However, Erin was quick to insist that she was more than happy remaining loyal to Eden. Teddy was far from Flavour of the Month in Eden's books after this little stunt. "Im fuming that this bloke's come in and out of all the girls to choose, he's chosen Erin" Eden said.
10. Did Eden hook-up with anyone else on the show?
Eden did not officially hook-up with anyone else on the show (that's because we're not counting the Spin the Bottle game where everyone was kissing left right and centre)
11. When did Erin and Eden first hook-up on Love Island?
Erin and Eden were the first couple to say 'I love you' to each other, and their first hook-up under the covers in the villa. It was pretty awkward for the other villamates to say the least. Sure, Erin and Eden weren't nude or anything, but they couldn't help but hear the sounds of their pashing in the dark!
12. Did Erin and Eden have any arguments on Love Island?
They say the course of true love never runs smooth, and it was definitely not all smooth sailing for Eden and Erin. The couple had a fight about Eden being attracted to Millie, the couple fought about Eden's answers in the lie detector test, a fight ensued when Erin joked during the balloon game that Grant was better in bed than Eden... in hindsight, there were a lot of red flags that suggested it was going to be hard for the pair to make it in the long-term.

13. Did Erin or Eden make any enemies on the show?
Grant and Eden's fight after Justin's eviction from the villa is now Love Island Australia folk lore. When an escalating screaming match over what was said in the moment and contestant's loyalties reached its crescendo, Grant stepped in to defend Tayla. And that's when it got physical.
There was also no love lost between Millie and Erin. Erin accused Millie of having no concept of Girl Code and said that they were never going to be friends, and Millie later said that it was just Erin's own insecurities that prevented them from getting along.
14. Are Eden and Erin still together?
Unfortunately, those that were hoping the couple would still be together had to face a brutal reality. Erin and Eden announced their break-up on Instagram back in early September 2018. In a joint statement, the former boyfriend and girlfriend addressed the sudden split.
We wanted to share with you, that after much deliberation, we have quietly parted ways," they said in the caption of a Instagram selfie. "We look back and cherish the time we have spent together, the memories we have created, in both Spain and in Australia.
The end of their relationship came as a big surprise to many, especially as it seemed as though things were getting serious. The couple had openly spoken with WHO about getting IVF, because Erin would struggle to conceive and give birth naturally. “I’ve got a few ovary problems so we can only [get pregnant] through IVF,” Erin told us, “Because I’m 23, we have to plan all that and do it before the age of 25.”Only two weeks before they announced their break-up, the couple was speaking about having a family. “We want two kids, I want a boy and a little girl,” Eden said “Erin has a feeling we’ll have twins.”
Some people had been speculating that the long-distance element of their relationship had gotten too difficult for the young couple, but Eden and Erin had moved to quash those rumours too. With Erin continuing her nursing job in Melbourne and Eden still working at a Sydney prison, their relationship certainly wasn't easy from a logistical perspective but they were taking steps to overcome the obstacles. Erin told WHO. “It’s one of those things you both have to be in on the same page or it doesn’t work,” with Eden adding “We made a deal with each other, we stuck by it and it’s been good ever since.”
On Erin's YouTube channel, she uploaded a video detailing her side of their break-up and why she felt she had to leave the relationship. She made some pretty serious allegations in the video concerning intimidating behaviour, including describing what she calls the "most frightening moment" of her life, and infidelity.

In reply to Erin's no-holds barred video, Eden spoke to Cosmopolitan Australia to publicise his response. Eden said:
"I have a heavy heart writing this statement, but I’d like to address Erin’s comments about me and our relationship. While I won’t go into detail about each false claim, I would like to say that the aggressive, threatening, and angry person Erin’s painted me as is not a true reflection of who I am. I’m a fun-loving, light-hearted guy who cares deeply about and would do anything for his family and friends. While I do believe Erin and I bring out the worst in one another, I would never dream of using her personal struggles against her to boost my public image or gain followers. I have never been abusive nor have I ever laid hands on Erin in an aggressive nature. I never tried to kill Erin or myself in my car as she claims.
I struggle with emotions and I am one of thousands of Aussie men who battle with anxiety and depression. Erin has exposed aspects of my inner demons without giving the whole story and the scrutiny and hate I’ve received through social media and day-to-day life has taken its toll on my relationships, employment, and mental health. I regret the ugly way this has played out in the media and I am devastated that our fairy-tale romance had such a heartbreaking ending.
I’d like to thank my family and friends for their support in this difficult time and I’d like to encourage anyone struggling with mental health to contact Black Dog Institute or Lifeline.”
15. Who have they dated in the past?
Not much is known about Erin's ex-boyfriends before she appeared on Love Island, but she's mention that a previous relationship was the reason she held back on getting a boob job for so long.
16. Are Eden and Erin from Love Island on Instagram?
17. What are Eden and Erin doing now and what are their future plans?
Eden was recently snapped stepping out with 'Cyclone' Cyrell Paule, and they have confirmed that they are together. Erin seems to be in a very positive place, and is continuing with her YouTube channel and modelling. She has a partner who isn't famous, just a normal person like the rest of us, and everything points towards them still being happy in their relationship. There is no word on whether we will see either Eden or Erin appear on any upcoming television programs - but never say never!
