Love Island fans were left stunned last night when Grant Crapp proposed to Tayla Damir.

The electrician shocked viewers when he presented the 22-year-old with a ring, after secretly luring her to a rooftop with the help of fellow island resident Teddy.

After giving her a box filled with gifts that represented their whirlwind romance, he then whipped out a ring and asked her to be his official girlfriend.

“I came to Love Island looking for a relationship with someone,” he said, as he struggled to get out his words.

“We’ve had a lot of ups and downs, but every time I look at you I realise I couldn’t be here with anyone else,” he continued, before pulling out a ring box.

“I got you this as a commitment ring from me to you,” he said. “I’d love for you to be my girlfriend, babe.”

Tayla, who had been shaking throughout the whole proposal, was clearly delighted by the gesture and threw her arms around him to accept.

“Do I wear it like an engagement ring?” she said, slipping the ring on her wedding finger.

The pair had a difficult start to their relationship, with Grant initially coupling up with Cassidy on the first episode and being forced to break her heart in order to pursue a romance with Tayla.

Many fans initially disliked them as a couple, but appear to have done a 180 after Grant’s “genuine” proposal.

With the show’s finale taking place next week and $50,000 prize money up for grabs, Tayla and Grant could be in with a hot chance of winning.

We can’t wait.
