Brent will be joining the cast for Casa Amor, which is a part of Love Island that sees both the boys and girls ‘swapped out’, so that the original groups both meet a new gaggle of contestants of the opposite sex.
Ultimately, it is designed to test loyalties in pre-existing couples, but also works to create the drama we love.
Brent and four other men will be introduced to the existing ladies, in the hope of finding love (and stirring up drama).
There’s currently no evidence on Brent’s Instagram that he’ll be joining the cast, but we’re taking Grant’s shout-out as definite confirmation.
One of the most infamous contestants in Love Island history, Grant won the first Australian season alongside Tayla Damir, receiving $50,000 in prize money.
“We’re going to use the money to move to Sydney together,” Tayla told Now to Love when the win was announced.
Unfortunately, the couple split very quickly after the finale aired, when it was revealed that Grant had a girlfriend back home in Australia.
“Obviously, I’m heartbroken, it was a big shock to the system,” Tayla told The Fix at the time.
“He denied it when we were in the house and I just had this gut feeling to follow through with it. Once I was able to access media and read the articles, I told Grant he needed to own up. I finally got the answer that was the truth: he was on there to promote himself and he did have a girlfriend who was running his business while he was inside the Villa,” she explained.
He returned to his partner, Lucy Cartwright, after breaking things off with Tayla. Since then, the couple have seemingly gone from strength to strength, even having a baby earlier this year – Charli Zoe Crapp.
Tayla has also moved on with her love life and is now engaged to AFL player Nathan Broad.
We’re hoping Brent will have a better, or at least more honest, Love Island journey than his older brother did. Bring on Casa Amor!
