Grant Crapp didn’t exactly have an easy time in the Love Island Australia villa.

After getting together with Cassidy McGill in week one, he then went on to brutally dump her for Tayla Damir.

Despite the rocky start - and a few hiccups along the way - Grant and Tayla then made it all the way to the final and managed to beat favourites Eden Dally and Erin Barnett to win the $50k prize.

Unfortunately, the drama continued back in Aus as it was reported that Grant already had a secret ‘live in’ girlfriend - personal trainer Lucy Cartwright - and only went on the show to promote his clothing brand.

Despite insisting he was single when entering the Love Island Australia villa, just two weeks later Grant announced he was back with Lucy.

And the pair are still together two years later, so let’s take a look inside their relationship…

How long have Grant and girlfriend Lucy been together?

It’s unknown how long Grant and Lucy had been ‘friends’ before getting together.

Lucy told NW: "Me and Grant knew each other for a long time before Love Island.

"We were really good friends and had a really close friendship. But it was never anything serious."

By the looks of his Instagram account, Grant was hanging out with Lucy and her family in April 2018, and was still posting pictures of her just a few weeks before joining Love Island.
