Why Love Island's Grant didn't think Tayla had actually broken up with him

Even though Love Island Australia is all finished up for 2018, the drama definitely isn't.

Last week Grant became public enemy #1 after Tayla found out he'd had a secret girlfriend outside of the show and by the end of the week, Tayla had broken things off with him saying on Insta:

It’s with great heartbreak that I write this post to inform everyone that Grant and I are no longer together, but will remain amicable despite the circumstances

You'd think that'd be the end of it though right? Well think again. While speaking with the Daily Mail, Grant has now said he had no idea that they'd actually broken up.

Grant admitted he thought they were only in the middle of a 'lover's tiff' and only found out that they were over when he saw Tayla's post on Insta like the rest of us.

Me and Tayla spoke the night before [her break-up post] and I honestly thought it was more of a lover's tiff or an argument, as most couples have

I didn't expect it to go up on Instagram... I didn't know [Tayla] was going to do it all. Firstly, I didn't think it was over and when I saw that... What are you going to do?

Even though it seemed pretty certain they were over for good going by Tayla's post, Grant is still hopeful he can save their relationship.

I have spoken to her on the phone yesterday [Saturday], sent a few messages here and there… Very, very briefly, spoke to her on the phone. I understand why she's upset.

I’m still in love with Tayla. I've said to her the ball's in her court.
