Love Island's Grant is back with the secret GF he had while on the show

Since winning the first ever Love Island Australia, it's been nonstop drama for Tayla and Grant.

12 days after the show finished, Tayla called it quits after finding out Grant had a secret girlfriend outside of the show. And even though Grant said he had no idea they had actually broken up and hoped he could have a second chance, he's now back with that same secret girlfriend, Lucy Cartwright, back by his side.

In a NW exclusive, Grant said he's back living in Canberra and seeing Lucy again.

In the joint interview, Lucy said that while they were really close before he went on the show "it was never anything serious" and it wasn't until she saw him on the show that she realised she did actually have feelings for him.

I don't think it was until he was on there and I was watching it that I sort of went, 'Oh, I did have feelings that were more than just a friendship',

Even though it was only two weeks ago that he was still hoping for a chance to get back with Tayla, Grant seems pretty happy to now be with Lucy.

Obviously I was going into the Villa with an open heart and looking for love. But then, I've come out, me and Tayla are finished and I'm back with Lucy. It does make you think about what you valued... the friendship [I had] before I went in there
