The series, which features Aussie contestants attempting to find love in Majorca, is actually a repeat of 2018’s season as most live shows are unable to film due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

That means those of you who can’t wait to find out which scantily-clad singles won Love Island: Australia are in luck!

Here’s everything you need to know about how season one panned out – don’t read on if you don’t want anything ruined as there are major spoilers ahead.

When is the Love Island: Australia season 1 finale?

Love Island: Australia started on 15th June 2020, and unlike the UK series, it’s airing every day on ITV2. Normally, we have a Saturday break, but since this a repeat, ITV2 are airing it back-to-back.

We’ve done our research so you don’t have to – there were 30 episodes in the 2018 outing – so by our estimations, we should see the winner crowned on 14th July 2020.

Of course, that’s subject to change, but when the schedules confirm it, we’ll update this page.

Who won season 1 of Love Island: Australia?

Grant Crapp, 22, from Canberra and 21-year-old Tayla Damir from Perth emerged as the winners of season one.

Both contestants from Day One in the villa, the duo coupled up during Week Two and stayed together (more or less) from then on. For a brief period they were parted, with Grant pairing with Cassidy and Tayla teaming up with Jaxon during Week 4, but they quickly reunited.

During the finale, Tayla received the $50,000 in the final twist decision, but decided to share the money with Grant.

Sydney-based Eden Dally (25) and 23-year-old Erin Barnett from Melbourne were the series runner-ups, while Amelia Plummer (23) and Josh Moss (25) came in third place.

Are the Love Island: Australia winners still together?

Two years have passed since electrician Grant and beauty queen Tayla won season one, but are they still together?

Sadly not – the winning couple broke up just weeks after leaving the villa despite Grant declaring his love for Tayla during the show’s finale.

It was quite the scandal too, as it was revealed after the show finished that Grant had a girl on the outside, little to everyone’s knowledge.

Tayla wrote on Instagram in July 2018, confirming the break-up: “I want to take the time to thank everyone who supported Grant and I during our Love Island journey and especially everyone who has continued to support us since.”

“But 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.”

It didn’t seem to be the most successful series either as other couples’ fates were doomed too.
