After falling in love on Love Island and taking home with winning prize with boyfriend Grant Crapp, Tayla Damir's bubble of happiness burst when reports surfaced that the electrician had a girlfriend the whole time he was on the show.
Fellow contestants Eden Dally and Erin Barnett confirmed to WHO that Grant was in a relationship with Lucy Cartwright throughout the filming.
And now, Tayla says that with all he’s put her through, it comes as no surprise the pair have not been in contact, and there’s no chance of a reunion.“No, we haven’t spoken,” she says with a sigh of relief. “I would never consider taking him back. That is a hard no. [And with a surname like Crapp] I feel like I really dodged a bullet. I dodged a few bullets.”
Love Island host Sophie Monk, no stranger to heartbreak herself, has also been in touch to commiserate. “Me and Sophie have spoken since the show,” Tayla says. “She’s hilarious. She’s just like, ‘Oh my god, typical this happens!’ She’s already gone through it all so she has a lot of words of wisdom. She’s been through very similar.”
With the heartbreak behind her, Tayla’s top priority is her career. But, as she teases, she can’t reveal too much just yet. “With my journalism broadcasting degree, that’s opened up a lot of doors for me,” the Miss Universe Australia finalist explains.
“I can’t really say who, but there’s talks with some networks and radio, and different things like that, so fingers crossed all of that works out. You may be seeing me on your screens again soon! Stay tuned.”
